CollaborApp® An Idea is Born
Upon arrival home from a business trip, Ms. Lloyd, the founder of CollaborApp® , was up until 3:00 a.m. to gather documents to share with her treatment team overnight. Before resting to get a couple of hours of sleep before work the next day, she said to herself "there must be an app for this". Upon waking the CollaborApp® name came to her mind and her idea for an app was born.
CollaborApp® allows an implementation team, and caregivers, to share valuable information for an individual with disabilities in a secure electronic format. As providers and caregivers implement an individual’s “treatment plan”, daily collaboration for consistency across environments is an entitlement that needs to be addressed. Individuals with special needs are entitled to reasonable and fair treatment based on their “individual needs” and this requires the team to effectively collaborate across environments with multiple people and professionals on behalf of individuals who are not able to help themselves and who are often nonverbal.
CollaborApp®is the first mobile application to address the need for collaboration across environments in a real time electronic environment. Unlike traditional paper based modality implementation, team members may utilize the app to gain access to one source of truth with regard to the status of a consumer they are implementing a treatment plan for. The tool is real time and inclusive for all members who accept an invitation to participate. A mobile device or the Internet can access the tool. Secure access encryption layers are utilized for all users in response to privacy and data security requirements.
The app makes it possible for service providers and caregivers to gain real time information regarding a consumer with disabilities in a secure environment, regardless of their location or time zone. The tool can be used as a daily tool for treatment plan implementation. Also, in case of emergency, it is a means by which an individual can be located, documentation can be accessed, and and the team can be notified simultaneously with regard to the status of a disabled consumer.
The tool can be used by therapists, family members, caregivers, school districts and other service providers who need to share or gain access to timely information related to a disabled individual. Instead of relying on multiple people using multiple methods to share information manually, CollaborApp® can be used to gain immediate assess to current information needed to implement care on a 24/7 basis. The app removes time delays and misinformation that naturally occurs in a chain of communication on behalf of a disabled individual. This improves the effectiveness of a treatment plan while also reducing stress for all users of the tool for better outcomes.
Individuals who wish to access CollaborApp® can simply download it and set up a profile. Once the secure profile is created, the treatment team can be joined and then notifications, documentation, and calendar access can be established for consumers in order to share information, check in before a shift, or respond to an emergency or inquiry.

God bless all of us who are on this incredible journey.
As a parent of a deaf-autistic child, Ms. Lloyd identified evidence based special needs protocols that she wanted to share with the special needs community. She also learned that collaboration is an entitlement for her son, Adam, and she felt compelled to help families, like hers, find a way to create an effective treatment plan and share information that would reduce stress on the family while saving time and resources finding methods that worked. As a result, her LLC was founded in 2013 and CollaborApp® followed.
Given his dual diagnosis, Ms. Lloyd believes “it is a miracle first that Adam is communicating, not to mention talking using vocal approximations”. Collaboration with a team of evidence-based professionals was a necessary ingredient of Adam’s success. Adam’s story is the basis of the foundation for Kerrie’s vision for CollaborApp®.
Ms. Lloyd has been a sales and marketing for 30 (+) years. As part of her most recent position for a major financial institution, Ms. Lloyd earned certifications including solutions for data management and software applications for institutional investors. Connecting the dots in her personal life, Ms. Lloyd decided to put this knowledge to work to help Adam and his community discover a digital way of sharing real time information electronically, rather than having to resort to paper or other means to attempt to facilitate communication with a treatment team throughout the day.
In addition to her career, Ms. Lloyd has a background in healing and service professions. She received her doctor of natural health in 2003 and then Adam was born in 2004. Two years later, he was diagnosed with Autism. In 2013, Ms. Lloyd founded Integrative Solution Services, LLC to offer special needs families a means to sort through available service alternatives while creating a meaningful treatment plan that promotes growth and healing for the entire family. During National Disabilities Month in October of 2019, Integrative Solution Services LLC grew to include CollaborApp® .
Ms. Lloyd is certified in ABA based Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT) for Autism treatment protocols through UC Santa Barbara. She continues her study of PRT while implementing modalities for Adam. She has created CollaborApp® as a means by which she can share information that will hopefully serve families and the community of people who are managing care for a disabled individual.
