The award recognises the NISCC Apps as outstanding software applications that support husITa's mission to promote the ethical and effective use of information technology to better serve humanity. The NISCC Apps – Understanding Child Development 0-7 years, 7-12 and 13-18 years – enable health and social care practitioners, and parents, to download information on developmental milestones including typical and atypical social, cognitive, language and physical development.
