Placement Questionnaire
Should you purchase the program directly, TeachTown Basics starts by presenting you a Placement Questionnaire about your child. Your answers to the Placement Questionnaire will determine the appropriate starting point for your child in each of the six TeachTown Basics learning domains.

As your child masters lessons, the program will automatically re-adjust to accommodate for skills already learned and will present new skills to your child. For best results, we recommend that your child completes two 15-20 minutes sessions a day. For your child's first computer session, select a 5 minute length then gradually increase to the length recommended.

A monthly subscription to the TeachTown Basics includes access to over 500 computer lessons, 300 downloadable Generalization Lessons for off computer use, dozens of reward games and automatic data collection and reporting. Additionally, TeachTown Basics allows you to synchronize your student’s data to any computer with the software installed. This means that your student can use the program at home, at the therapists, and at school and all of your student’s data will be available in each location. Your child will generalize the skills they learn on the computer into the natural setting.

With unparalleled data collection and reporting, data are automatically captured and tracked and can be shared among team members to set program goals. Parents and other team members can leave session notes to connect with one another. Student progress reports and graphs are available to everyone on the education team. Each student’s information can be synchronized across multiple locations from a secure server, making TeachTown Basics a truly portable therapy.
TeachTown Basics is a complete program. We believe software alone is not enough. Generalization activities are a fundamental part of the program and of any ABA therapy. Such activities are necessary for children to demonstrate acquired skills in a different educational setting. 300 Generalization Lessons are included.
Parents and facilitators have the ability to align the TeachTown curriculum to individual student goals and objectives.
Aligning Instruction to Student IEPs
Lying at the heart of TeachTown Basics are the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).
TeachTown Basics is highly committed to actively participate in high-quality research on its programs that address not only the question of what works, but also the question of for whom is it effective, and what factors moderate program effectiveness.
