Organizations Life Sherpa is Working With

“Life Sherpa has allowed us to help students gain more independence in their life by using the app in conjunction with staff instruction to help with Executive Functioning deficits. Using the Life Sherpa data in conjunction with their teaching has given the staff greater opportunities to teach a skill and deepen their interactions.”

Ric Kienzle

Director, College Living Experience - Rockville

“Life Sherpa has been a great resource to help teach new skills to our daughter and maintain skills over time. It allows us to help her stay on a routine with more independence and success.”


"PHILLIPS is delighted to partner with Life Sherpa and their newly developed app to support independence for youth with behavioral health needs served by PHILLIPS in their work place. The Life Sherpa app empowers our transitioning youth with executive functioning needs with the tools they need to navigate the work site successfully reducing the need for a job coach. The app provides real time data, prompts, and reinforcers for the youth, and to their multi disciplinary school team. Leveraging technology with the use of the Life Sherpa app allows youth to take charge and experience a successful employment experience. This is exciting!"

Piper Phillips Caswell

President & CEO, PHILLIPS Programs for Children and Families

"As a 24 year old with Asperger's Syndrome, Life Sherpa helps me keep up with my routines."


"Life Sherpa shows great promise as a solution to problems faced by our staff related to consistency, reinforcement and data collection.”

Abe Rafi

Director of Digital Strategy & Online Services, The Arc

"Not only does this app help my son gain independence, but it also provides me the ability to track the completion progress of his routines on my own phone, giving me peace of mind. Thank you, Life Sherpa, for motivating my son and for allowing me to feel more like a coach and cheerleader instead of a constant nag."


“The Life Sherpa platform provides clinicians with a versatile and flexible tool that can be incorporated into treatment protocols to address complex and challenging client goals and, as a result, will help us scale our business while continuing to provide high quality, individualized services.”

Barbara Kaminski, PhD BCBA

D Clinical Director Green Box ABA, PLLC

“My kid learned how to shave and properly make his bed within two weeks”


“Life-Sherpa addresses behavior ‘generalization’ that is key to promoting independence so the child can master skills they can use all their lives!”

Jill Austin

Behavioral Therapist, M.ed, BCBA

“Life Sherpa gives parents peace of mind to know that routines are being completed”


"Too often, even the best interventions don't generate the desired outcomes because they just aren't used consistently by everyone educating and caring for the child. Life Sherpa makes consistency so much simpler to achieve.”

Bob Cunningham

Head of School, Robert Louis Stevenson School

“My daughter just got her first cavity free dental check up, we credit Sherpa for her improvement in hygiene”


“The reminders from Sherpa are enough to prompt the right behavior and allow the family to focus on other things”

Our Story

Life-Sherpa grew out of a personal quest for Doug Meeker. When his son was diagnosed with autism at age 3, Doug set out to teach Scott the skills to become an independent adult. This journey connected him with autism therapist Curt Byers, other experts and parents — and led to creating a mobile platform to help drive behavioral changes and accelerate progress.
