• Empowering Parents

     

    "Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do." ~ Dr. Spock

    "You can't manage what you don't measure." ~ Peter Drucker

     

    Capturing Expertise

    In 1946, Dr. Benjamin Spock's book Baby and Child Care, emphasized that, above all, parents should have confidence in their observations and abilities, and trust their instincts. The famous first line of the book reads, “Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.”

     

    Alea supports your role as your child's expert, champion, and advocate on early education and healthcare teams.

     

    Creating a Digital Baby Book

    Parents often provide targeted observational data to early education or healthcare providers but receive little in return. Support for an area of developmental weakness, or capitalizing on an area of strength requires standardized measuring for informed decision making and action.

     

    Transparency of data and information sharing is critical to support the parent's leading role on their child's education or health team.

     

    Consideration of Health Status

    Parents need a way to track observations of their child's behavior and skills based on their child's baseline health status.

     

    The developmental trajectory of children with rare, genetic, congenital and acquired conditions is mostly unknown. Alea is designed for children with no known health conditions as well as for children with diagnosed health conditions.

     

    Important- The "Normal" Range of Human Development is Vast

    Developmental milestones are behaviors or physical skills observed in infants and children as they grow and develop. Rolling over, crawling, walking, and talking are all considered milestones. The milestones are different for each age range.

     

    One of the reasons for well-child visits to the health care provider in the early years is to follow your child's development. Most parents also watch for different milestones. Talk to your child's provider if you have concerns about your child's development.

  • The Alea Story

    A Diagnostic Journey

    Alea ~ Latin for Risk

    Linda Craib, the founder of Alea Diagnostics, experienced a 3-year diagnostic journey with her youngest daughter. As a pediatric RN with expertise in the care of children with medical complexity and special healthcare needs, she became an impassioned advocate to help families access care and early intervention services. In 1997, she prevailed in an Office for Civil Rights case she filed on behalf of 162 children with autism and other serious health conditions when her school district failed to comply with the American's with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). When her older daughter experienced similar, systematic challenges to care access and early intervention services with her first son, the idea for Alea Diagnostics, a company dedicated to empowering parents with data, as key observers and experts about their child, was first envisioned.

     

    This animated short, created in 2010 when Alea won the McCance Award for entrepreneurship at Yale, highlights some statistics about the failures of provider-led developmental surveillance and screening. Although the narration is focused on autism, there are many other children and families experiencing their own, time-sensitive journeys. According to the CDC, 1 of every 6 children (17%) have one or more developmental disabilities.

     

    Alea is designed for parent use.

     

    Alea Diagnostics is dedicated to all children on a diagnostic journey and to the families, healthcare providers, researchers, and early education teams who care for them.

    How we share your data
    
    1. To support our business activities
    We may share your de-identified data with contractors, service providers, and other third party vendors in order to support our business activities including the raising of capital investment to build our business. 
    
     2. Change in control or sale
    To a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of Alea Diagnostics assets, in which personal information held by Alea Diagnostics about our users is among the assets transferred. This Privacy Policy would continue to apply to information collected while it was in place.
    
    3. Legal Disclosures
    It is possible that we will need to disclose information about you when required by law, subpoena, or other legal process or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (1) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (2) enforce our agreements with you, (3) investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, (4) protect the security or integrity of our Service (such as by sharing with companies facing similar threats); or (5) exercise or protect the rights and safety of Alea Diagnostics, our Users, personnel, or others. We attempt to notify Users about legal demands for their personal data when appropriate in our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court order or when the request is an emergency. We may dispute such demands when we believe, in our discretion, that the requests are overbroad, vague or lack proper authority, but we do not promise to challenge every demand. 
    
    4. When directed by the user under limited conditions
    Users are encouraged to participate in clinical research, trials and other potential opportunities if they are interested and they meet certain enrollment criteria. Once a volunteer opts to enroll in a study, they will opt to share their health information. Alea Diagnostics will facilitate this transaction.  Important Note: Access to PD on Alea Diagnostics is granted only to individuals who are bound by contractual obligations and HIPAA guidelines to keep personal information confidential and to use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them.

    2. Account Closure
    If you choose to close your Alea Diagnostics account by asking us to remove your email, we will delete your information within 60 days, except as noted below.

We may retain de-personalized information after your account has been closed.
    
    3. Security
    We treat the privacy and security of your PD with care and respect. As such, we take precautions to secure and protect your information from unauthorized access, disclosure, or use through the use of a platform that is HIPAA and GDPR compliant. We use security safeguards designed to protect your data, such as HTTPS. However, we cannot warrant the security of any information that you send us.
