Brightline has been a game-changer for my family. The app gives me access to all of my son’s upcoming therapy appointments and makes it easy for me to add them to my calendar.

A day after our therapy session, my son and me had a pretty crummy day. I reached out to our coach for some extra support. The coach sent us some messages offering support, and even sent me some articles and a video in the app that have been super helpful. Having that support six days before our next session made our week much better.

Logging in quickly with FaceID is a huge bonus, especially for an app in the healthcare space. Thanks Brightline!

So much more convenient!

I’ve had a great experience with Brightline for my son, but it was a little inconvenient to have to go to the website every time. Having the app makes all the difference! Being able to open it and see any upcoming sessions, activities and chats has been so nice and much more convenient.

Delightful, family friendly app with practical content

Seamless experience onboarding and accessing care. Practical, digestible content I can read on the go as a caregiver. Love that the app asks questions to help understand how to engage my child. Great branding as well!
