NEW APP DEVELOPED BY PEARL RIVER FIRM

Board certified psychiatrist Dr. Lois Kroplick and hypnotherapist Craig Caliciotti have co-produced a new mobile app to relieve Test Anxiety. The app, developed by Superior Technology Solutions, is now available for download in the iTunes store. Approximately a year in the making, the app will alleviate the symptoms of one of the major issues they see in their practices – test-related anxiety. Kroplick and Caliciotti share an office suite in Pomona, NY, and have referred patients to one another for years. By using a combination of psychiatry and hypnotherapy, both saw patient improvement. They realized the importance of both approaches and crafted a way to collaborate and widely distribute their effective treatments – through an app.

Working closely with the two experts, the app was mapped and developed by Superior Technology Solutions. The Test Anxiety Relief app primarily targets students in grade school through graduate school and benefits test takers of any age. Both practitioners have worked with an array of students, from grade school to law school, and have provided anxiety relief solutions prior to Bar exams, SATs, and even continuing education courses for professionals. The app is designed to help maximize performance on exams while teaching the user effective strategies to help manage test anxiety. Features include general facts on test anxiety, self assessment tools, treatment information, and a series of audio recordings to help relax the user on the days leading up to an exam.

Caliciotti noted, “We heard good things about Superior’s capabilities. We met with them and were impressed, particularly with the mobile development team. Throughout the entire process, they were extremely accommodating and their office location made meetings very easy. We continually made tweaks, and they really understood what we needed.”

Superior Technology President John Luludis shares, “It’s very gratifying to bring the visions of business owners to fruition. Our custom application development capabilities with a strong business focus enable us to completely satisfy our customer’s requirements. We’re looking forward to seeing the success of Craig and Lois’s app now that it’s online.”
