Research

TeachTown products are based on rigorous research from staff experts and global studies in the field of autism. Our flagship product, TeachTown: Basics, uses evidence-based best practices from Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), Speech and Language Pathology, and developmental psychology to teach a wide range of meaningful skills. As research on social development demonstrates that it is essential to capture the attention of students before the age of 8 years, TeachTown: Social Skills will captivate and teach behavioral improvement in the classroom through animated video modeling to children with autism.
