An App for ADHD: CP On TimeWhat is CP On Time?
CP On Time is an iPhone app, created by Jennie Byrne, MD, PhD. Dr.Byrne, a psychiatrist specializing in adult ADHD, created this app help adults with ADHD with time management: specifically, to get to work, school, or any appointment of each day on time – or to get to bed on time. The app, at an affordable $3.99, prompts the user to enter their personal bedtime, morning, or other routines, along with an estimate of time for each task in the routine, such as shower, brushing teeth, waking the children, etc. The app then asks the user to enter the time of the relevant appointment (or bedtime), and how late the user was the day before. Based on all of this data, we have created a formula to automatically set the alarm clock for the time that they need to start their routine, in order to be on time for their appointment or bedtime.
CP On Time is designed to set a wakeup alarm, a bedtime alarm, and/or as many customized alarms as needed throughout the day. The app was developed to be flexible, to work with any schedule and to accommodate the needs of any adult with ADHD.Who Can Benefit from CP On Time?
