We offer an easy to use interface and transparency, so information is freely shared. Families can schedule their lives better, or have assistance when they need it, professionals can control when and how they work, and organizations without resources can now post their events, or even large organizations can now become part of a community.
Business and Organizations may apply to be StarryNet Approved, so special needs families can identify you. They will know that you and your staff have been trained to be more inclusive and aware. They will know that they will be treated with care and respect.
But if you ask an ABA Professional, they'll probably say that StarryNet let's them find earning opportunities when they are available, and that they love that they can control their hours and wages. Also, that the control they have over their private information is fantastic!
StarryNet Approved establishments can proudly show their badge and greet their guests knowing how to be more inclusive and welcoming to the special needs families. We will have trained your lead staff and given you resources to use and find ABA Professionals if their is a need.
Organizations will probably also say that they are happy to have a place they can post events, other than FB. That it's easy for them to post and also add advanced features like pre-registration or leads-generation during the event. Organizations can also indicate that they need help with the event and would like to solicit for assistance from ABA Professionals.
So StarryNet serves all facets of the special needs/autism world. Come be a part of it!
Organizations fill out a very simple questionnaire about themselves, as do Managers and Associates who work for the organization.
But as anything free, there's a catch :)
You can read all about it on the Home page -> Upgrades tab. It will show you what you get for free, and what you'll receive when you subscribe to Starry. You can also elect to a 30-day free trial to get all the benefits right now to try out!
The going rates can vary greatly but the client knows that they are dealing with qualified professionals. We routinely pay car mechanics close to or over one hundred dollars per hour, so given your expertise, what are you worth?
You and the client will need to make financial arrangements for the actual payment for the services for the date and time agreed upon.
But if your friend became a paid member, they can accept more than 10 requests, both of you will also earn more! :)
But then, it also paints a strange picture if all information is hidden ;) Any hidden information that you may want to see about another member (when you are trying to work out a request), may be made visible by asking the owner of that information for a temporary access grant. So you can control who sees what and when.
So spread the word! Help yourself by helping Starry grow!
No matter what organization, business, or group, they can have their own site or none at all. So the end-users, families, all have to dig around to find what is going on, where to find help or to find services they need. Whether that's online or in a local newspaper or from friends. That's the fact of life, unfortunately.
So if the end-users can find a site that is collectively autism and special needs based and allows all these disparage entities to post related events and promotions on one site! That is StarryNet! And we offer you this for free! Yes, really.
You can download all the leads as a .csv file and you can do whatever you want with it.
So when this event is viewed, there will be an 'Assist Event' button. When that's pressed, that will inform the user to sign up or login as an ABA professional first. Once they have done that, and re-press the button, an assist-request will be created for both of you.
You can then review the professional's credentials, history and reviews (in your User page -> All Other Requests tab). If any of information are hidden as private information, you can request for a temporary permission to be granted. Once you've finalized your discussion with the professional about both the compensation and what you need as service, both parties can signal their agreement via the site.
