"I wish you could have seen how engaged all my students were . . .they ask daily for TeachTown time!"
Marlene S., Teacher
"This is a tremendous program!"
Robert S., Teacher
"I feel a great job has been done targeting areas of social skill weaknesses in the target population."
Cathy W., Teacher
"I think that Social Skills are one of the most important things we as educators teach. This is a great way to get children to learn and understand how their behavior affects the whole class."
"The animation was engaging and useful because students loved the characters."
"The kids wanted to see the episodes again and again. . .they couldn't get enough of it. The cartoon is one of the key points in making this successful because my students tend to lose focus unless it's animation."
"We loved the animation, and the ideas behind the TeachTown lessons are great!"
"Most of the IEP goals are supported, or can be supported, through lessons that TeachTown has already created, both on and off the computer."
Monica Y., Teacher
"Our preschool teachers have been very excited about having access to this as a tool!"
Renee M., Teacher
"My student was using the program at home and his mother was absolutely thrilled. We saw so much progress with him in his academics, but also in his behavior. He likes to work. He was excited, he was happy. Once I saw that, I knew I needed this with all of my students. He was benefiting so much, I wanted to see everybody else benefit. I was able then to start using the program with all of my students. I saw varying degrees of success, but success with everybody!"
Kate R., Teacher
"Behavior problems decrease because the students are totally engaged!"
Tracy D., Special Education Itinerant Teacher
"My son was at John Jacobs school when his special education team and district had a subscription to TeachTown. This program changed my son’s life. He is now 17.5 years old. I can’t brag enough about this program. I am surprised that many parents I have met have never heard about this program. I wish to use my son’s story to pass this along to other parents. I am currently homeschooling and supporting children with special needs."
Grace O., Parent
"TeachTown Social Skills has been wonderful for my five challenged children. It has made teaching them more about social skills easy to do in a way that allows me to adapt the reinforcers to their level easily. Amazingly, they are learning a lot and I can easily keep track of their progress. Safe Skills is fantastic. It really allows my challenged kids to understand the rules using multiple learning modalities in step wise fashion. It has taught them more of what is expected by society and helped them practice new skills. This, in turn, will help them be safer when interacting with community helpers. I am so impressed by the quality of the materials and the appropriateness of the materials for my children."
"I just want to say that, as a special education teacher, this is the most amazing product that I’ve ever used, especially for my nonverbal student. I love the errorless learning and the timed breaks. I love that you can set the amount of time you want the student to work on something and that you can put a code into the computer/iPad and they can’t leave the screen. The lessons are functional, relevant and amazing. The cartoons and lessons are fantastic and the games are quick, fun and bright. It’s also easy to figure out and navigate through. My students ask for it all of the time. Even the ones that are not signed up for it. It is an amazing product and I would it to all teachers, not just special education. Thank you so much!"
Lisa H., Teacher
"I am the mother of an eight-year-old boy with severe autism. Since he was younger, he has been in multiple therapies, including inpatient feeding therapy. We have tried everything under the sun from doctors, diets, supplements, interventions for kids on the spectrum, speech applications, speech programs, etc. When the pandemic started, I was lost now that my son would be at home. I am not a specialist for kids with autism; I am not a teacher; I am not a therapist. I worried about how much more behind my son would be. The school provided my son TeachTown Basics to supplement his few minutes daily of virtual school. My life, and my son’s life, changed forever. My practically nonverbal son, that had been learning the same thing repeatedly for years, suddenly showed that he knew more than what anybody could imagine. In more than a year my son can now read, spell simple words, answer yes/no, can do simple addition and subtraction, count money, time and much more. Just because he was not able to talk, or answer, didn’t mean that he didn’t know the answers. Knowing what he knew helped me, the therapist and teacher change his goals. TeachTown was so amazing for my son. At the end of July 2020 (5 months after the pandemic had started), the school had stopped paying for the program, so I called TeachTown and asked if my son could continue the program. I was willing to pay out of pocket. I was willing to get any training in order to get the TeachTown program. In comparison to the least expensive therapy session that my son takes, the monthly amount to pay for the TeachTown program was very minimal. I can use the program daily for the time that I want, I can repeat modules, etc. I believe the big change for my son is that now I know how much he knew and what he didn’t. I was able to work on generalizing those skills and work on the things that he had trouble with. TeachTown has been the most rewarding, simple and inexpensive program. I will always be grateful to the developer and the staff. Thanks so much and I can’t wait to jump to enCORE. Finally, I see hope and light at the end of the tunnel!"
