The 5Minutes4Myself companion mobile app aims to improve wellness for caregivers of children with autism. It provides efficient access to an occupation-based wellness program that includes habit-building features and mindfulness podcasts. We examined usability of the 5Minutes4Myself app via the Modified System Usability Scale, usage data, and focus groups. The app had above-average usability, suggesting it can be a practical tool for stress reduction in populations with elevated stress levels.
