Welcome to TeachTown, an education software company that provides educators, parents and clinicians curriculum and education programs that measurably improve the academic, behavioral and adaptive functioning of students with moderate to severe learning disabilities.
TeachTown’s solutions utilize evidence-based best practices derived from Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), improving student academic outcomes, and providing life skills that enable children with autism and related development disorders to thrive.
TeachTown’s solution suite is founded on the methodologies of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA): the only educational treatment that has been scientifically supported for students with moderate to severe disabilities, including those diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), developmental disabilities, intellectual disabilities and emotional and behavior disorders.
While Applied Behavior Analysis-trained clinicians are often times challenged to connect the treatment and progress made in office therapy settings to home and/or the school setting, TeachTown’s solution suite records and summarizes client progress data, promoting full transparency and the ability for it to be shared with all members of a child’s support team.
With TeachTown’s solution suite, parents and guardians of children diagnosed with moderate and severe disabilities are provided with proven tools and strategies to help their children meet educational goals and complement and support what their child is learning in the classroom.
TeachTown’s Meta-Play solution offers a systematic, play-based approach to fostering the development of imagination and play skills in young children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), intellectual disabilities, developmental delays, and social and emotional disabilities.
TeachTown Basics offers a blend of computer-delivered and teacher-led applied behavior analysis (ABA) instruction proven to increase a student’s vocabulary, listening skills, social-emotional development, independence, academics and cognitive skills.
TeachTown’s enCORE solution is the only standards-based, core-curriculum based on applied behavior analysis (ABA) that provides students with moderate and severe disabilities, including students with autism and other intellectual and developmental disabilities, access to the general education curriculum.
TeachTown Social Skills is a comprehensive curriculum broken down into two components: elementary-focused and middle school-focused. The solution teaches socially-valid skills for the younger age group, followed by an increase in emotional intelligence and building self-management skills for middle schoolers.
TeachTown’s Health and Wellness solution has been created to teach health and wellness skills to students with extensive support needs using evidence-based practices and technology-aided instruction.
TeachTown’s Transition to Adulthood solution was built around evidence-based practices to meet the needs of individuals with autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disabilities and developmental disabilities as they begin transition planning.
TeachTown’s SLP Assist provides technology-driven lessons for students, alongside a dashboard for SLPs to increase efficiency.
TeachTown’s BE SAFE solution is a curriculum designed to help teens and adults with moderate to severe disabilities learn how to interact appropriately with law enforcement, as well as how to handle emergency situations.
As part of our commitment to improving student performance and teacher satisfaction, we offer various types of professional development — on-site training, webinars, online courses and more – that support the solutions and improve outcomes even further.
"Students who struggle with inattention are completing multiple tasks and enjoy learning! Students who require one-on-one instruction are developing more independence. TeachTown is an excellent instructional tool to promote student growth."
Brigid B., Director of Special Services
"As a former Special Education Teacher I spent a great deal of time trying to communicate with my students the importance of Social Skills. The TeachTown products not only accomplish this, but they do it better! The interactive materials are designed to not only entertain students, but engage them in important lessons. I am excited to share this product with teachers!"
Stephanie D., Teacher
"TeachTown saves teachers a lot of time in the sense that data recording is a very big part of any special educator’s job. And TeachTown automatically does that for us."
Kathy M., Teacher
"My district really knows the importance of TeachTown. Our Autism Director made it a point to continue TeachTown coming back every year even though there have been a bunch of budget cuts."
Monica Y., Teacher
"Our students are very willing to sit down and do the sessions on TeachTown. They enjoy it, they laugh, they smile, they’re learning, and the data is indicating that there has been growth in their learning."
Renee M., Teacher
"Both of my sons with autism love TeachTown. I don’t think they even realize that they are doing work because they are having so much fun."
Jenny M., Parent
When you’re working as an educator within the field of special education, it’s important to implement lesson plans that are grounded in evidence-based practices (EBPs). With EBPs in play, you have consistent evidence from reliable reviews of research showing that the practice produces positive outcomes with students with moderate to severe disabilities (MSDs). Visual supports are one EBP for students identified with MSDs that have been vetted and found effective in classroom settings across all ages from preschool through high school.
