You can customize your graphs in the Catalyst portal in a nearly endless number of ways, allowing for an unprecedented level of precision and real-time analysis. Plus, the behavior screen is always available, in every screen, so it is always only one touch away.

Automatic mastery, maintenance, and baseline criteria

Your Catalyst system includes an optional feature that allows you to automate your mastery procedures. In the Catalyst portal, users can define mastery criteria, such as the percentage of trials, minimum numbers of trials, number of therapists above criteria, and/or whether or not first daily trials must be independent. Catalyst will automatically determine mastered targets as criteria are achieved.

You can even engineer your Catalyst system to notify you and/or others (e.g., parents, administrators, etc.) when targets are mastered. If you choose, Catalyst will even automatically move on to your next, pre-defined target(s)!

The most advanced ABA graphing engine in the world

The Catalyst graphing engine is truly groundbreaking. Users can tailor theirs graphs in real time across as many as 20 different dimensions of recorded data. Updates are nearly instantaneous and can be annotated with specific individual information, such as condition lines, averages, and direct comparisons of TA steps, among others. 

Any of your customized graphs can be printed, saved, and/or shared with one click! Users can import their Catalyst graphs directly into Word documents for reports and sharing.

Automatic Progress Reports

With the click of a button, Catalyst can generate completely customizable progress reports that can be edited from within the web portal. Save hours on insurance reports, home notes and graph consolidation!
