About the solution

To be able to help Ashlynn, Lamarque quit his job and founded CareStarter, the company which develops the app. This app has the purpose of helping the parents and families of special needs kids to gather information about their condition, such as: Access to local clinics, therapists and other community resources.

“What do I know about helping a child who has a special healthcare need be successful? I knew nothing about autism. I knew nothing about resources that may or may not help Ashlynn”, the inventor observed.

The app is currently live in Dallas, Austin, Houston, Waco and Central Texas. We are expanding rapidly across the rest of the US, and is avaible, for free, you iOS and Android.
