Parents know that travelling can be an eye-opening experience for kids, but they also know that travelling even with one kid can be overwhelming, involving lots of bathroom stops and needing to manage boredom, motion sickness, and more.

When parents have an autistic kid, it means they have to consider additional factors when travelling. Because when places with sensory overload, closed spaces, or constant movement stress out an autistic child, the child can have what's called an "autistic meltdown", which is very difficult to manage temper tantrums.

So what if they had an app that could help them avoid triggering these meltdowns?

❓What it does❓

For parents and the caring adults they trust like a babysitter, the app allows them to:

  • journal when autistic meltdowns happen and how they manifested
  • visualize this data in a structured way to understand when and how meltdowns happen
  • find whether businesses and attractions they plan to visit are unexpectedly crowded or have areas to look out for that could trigger meltdowns
  • contact destinations like airports, hotels, and museums in advance in case accommodations can be made

For kids, the app helps them:

  • communicate their needs; and
  • journal their thoughts and feelings

For businesses, the app allows them to:

  • alert users when they unexpectedly have large crowds when users search for them
  • proactively inform users of areas with potential triggers like sensory overload from loud noises or bright lights; and
  • receive feedback anonymously from users when kids have a meltdown and any relevant environmental factor so that they might decide to put a sign up to caution visitors or indicate this info somewhere

🏗️How we built it🏗️

We built our app using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript for the dashboard and Figma for the mobile app.

  1. We Use HTML/CSS/JS for building the dashboard.
  2. We Use Auth0 as the login and Signup page.
  3. We Use Twilio for Multi-factor Authentication and Connecting SMS from Doctors or Social Groups.
  4. We Use FIGMA for Mobile Application.
  5. We use Google Maps for Localization and Addressing Restaurants or Stoppages of the Journey.
  6. We use Google Cloud for the deployment of the Dashboard

🚧Challenges we ran into🚧

  • Managing a team in different time zones
  • Limited coding ability on the team


We worked on an idea that has real-world application! We are happy to have devised a solution to a critical problem that affects such a vast number of people with no available methods or resources to assist them. We learned a lot while working on the project not just technically but also in time management. We are proud we could complete the project and deliver a beautiful fully functional Hack this weekend.

📚🙋‍♂️What we learned📚🙋‍♂️

We learned so much about HTML and CSS Design while completing Dashboard. Implementing UI/UX to the fullest of our Capabilities using FIGMA to make it look Aesthetic and Attractive for users. We were able to manage the time well and Implement the ideas we had brainstormed. We also learnt the critical use of Backend Services like Twilio and Auth0 for authentication. Google Maps and Google Cloud made the application more userfriendly and helped us learn about deployment. The themes of the website tried to make it as visually attractive as possible for the Autistic Kids to like and Enjoy.

💭What's next for Autinjoy💭

  1. User testing and feedback by real-time Users
  2. Deployment at a large scale for Social Good & Travel ease
  3. Auto-generating the travel itinerary using AI & Machine Learning
  4. Making a Weekly schedule for Management of Therapy Sessions
