Curriculum Aligned ELA Content & Data Tracking

SpecialNeedsWare

We are excited to share the newest content added to the TeachMate365 and AutisMate365 community library. Each scene and or support can be downloaded separately and later customized to support the needs of your learner or student.

TeachMate365 includes in-app data tracking with automatic graphing of your student’s IEP goals. TeachMate365’s data tracking tool is accessed from within the application and can be tracked simultaneously with instruction and response.

Although data tracking is not a feature of AutisMate365, AutisMate365 users can also access the new content and target the same goals outlined below without the data-tracking feature.

1. WH Questions
Who is it for: Beginner Learner
