In a study conducted at Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), students with autism who used TeachTown: Basics twenty minutes a day in the classroom for 3 months were compared to a control group of students with autism in the same LAUSD intensive autism educational program. Students who used TeachTown: Basics showed greater developmental gains (as measured by the Brigance, a developmental assessment which was administered by each student’s teacher) than students who did not use the program over a 3-month period.
