Visualize your tasks and create a super-day
DayCape wants everyone to live in a world where they feel excited about the day ahead of them. But for some of us, the tasks of the upcoming day can seem intimidating.
That’s why we developed DayCape – a fun and interactive digital visual calendar. The DayCape app helps you visualize your day, together with your close ones. Feeling prepared and visualize upcoming tasks can be what makes you get the most out of the day. We hope that it will be a great support in your daily life.
DayCape is an app that can support everyone during the day depending of your needs. For children it’s essential for their development and learning ability to have structure during the day. It’s been seen to increase concentration skills in school and better mood.
DayCape brings even more essential support for people with autism, ADHD and similar diagnoses. Having a structure can be the difference between having a great day and missing out completely. That’s why we wanted to make DayCape a web platform. An easy way to collaborate the daily planning together with parents, relatives and teachers.
Even if living with a diagnose has its difficulties, these children have their own uniqueness and skills that can be uplifted with the right kind of help. By transforming autism and other diagnoses into a superpower, we want to help our users develop the confidence to embrace the exciting day ahead.
From obstacle to superpower
It doesn’t matter who you are, how old you are or what you like to do. Anyone can put on a cape and prepare for a super day!
Anton Håkanson, founder of DayCape, was diagnosed as a young child to be within the autistic spectrum. Even if his diagnosis was later removed, he has a very special understanding of the daily issues that occur when you have difficulties planning your daily life.
Anton read a great deal of cartoons as a child, and his favorite hero was Peter Parker as Spiderman. Even with all the powers and spider sense that Peter has, he still experiences conflicting feelings about becoming Spiderman. He is unable to save everyone, and struggles with feeling different and weak, despite his unusual powers. But, Peter always had friends and family supporting him, and they helped him become the great superhero he was meant to be.
“That is why I think DayCape needs to exist. Just like Peter Parker, children struggle with powers they don’t understand. But with the right help from family and friends they can discover their own superpowers.” – Anton
