Our suite of TeachTown special education curriculum offers students with moderate to severe disabilities equitable and inclusive access to the general education curriculum and the individualized interventions that support their success.
As special educators, we all have the same goal in mind: providing our students with comprehensive learning opportunities that pave the way for educational and personal success.
To that end, our award-winning adapted core curriculum solutions and supporting interventions deliver a whole child approach. We help you measurably improve the academic, behavioral and adaptive skills of your students – from Pre-K through the transition years.
Offer your K-12 students the ONLY standards-based, adapted core-curriculum based on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) that provides access to the general education curriculum.
enCORE drives measurable student improvement (a 69% student growth rate between pre- and post- test scores!), while ensuring all of your students have equitable, inclusive access to an adapted core curriculum.
Designed to target general education standards via socially and developmentally-appropriate, research-based instruction, enCORE supports personalized instruction and automated data collection aligned to your students’ IEPs and skill levels.
Through interactive content, visuals, illustration and storytelling, our adapted core curriculum enCORE represents the diversity and multiculturalism of the population of students it serves. Bonus – student engagement and knowledge retention skyrockets as a result!
enCORE’s advanced blended learning model includes hands-on, teacher-led lessons and technology-facilitated, individualized student-led lessons. Our teacher guides, student workbooks, adapted reading library and hands-on manipulatives and materials bring ease and efficiency to the lives of teachers.
enCORE Elementary is designed to serve students in grades K-5. This curriculum includes 36 units of instruction (18 units for K-2, and 18 units for 3-5) across ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Each unit contains a fiction and associated nonfiction book that anchors the instruction across all four domains. Lessons are completely scripted and differentiated with 3 levels of support for all students.
enCORE Middle School serves students in grades 6-8 and includes 27 units of instruction. Each unit contains an adapted chapter book and two corresponding companion texts. Science content covers Earth Science, Life Science, and Physical Science. Social Studies includes U.S. History, World History, Civics, and Government.
enCORE High School launched in 2022 for students in grades 9-12 and all lessons include high school appropriate coursework, an expanded adapted library, and opportunities to work on transition skills.
Complex learners are interested in stories, songs, science, and sports—just like their typically developing peers. Neurodivergent students want to be successful in the classroom, on the court, and at their future companies—just like their typically developing peers. Students with disabilities thrive when they are healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged—just like their typically developing peers.
The whole child approach honors the humanity of each student. From early childhood through the transition years, students are multifaceted learners with nuanced strengths, needs, and abilities.
While reading comprehension and math competency are foundational skills and critically important for K-12 education, so, too, are the abilities to self advocate, problem solve, manage time, and develop healthy peer relationships.
That’s why we created our state standards-aligned, adapted curriculum, enCORE, alongside our key, supporting interventions that address the adaptive, social, and behavioral needs of students.

"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
Learning to read is a process, and that process is not the same for all learners.
However you learned to read, education scientists and thought leaders in literacy instruction agree that there is a science to the process. In other words, there is standardized, validated research behind how children learn to read, though students move forward in their reading journeys at different rates and may need differing levels of support.
This blog presents an overview of the Science of Reading research, as well as a detailed breakdown of how TeachTown’s K-12 adapted core curriculum, enCORE, incorporates the key components of the Science of Reading in its English Language Arts (ELA) curriculum.
