Greetings from Jigsaw Learning!

Jigsaw Learning researchers will be conducting a third study (funded in part by the Department of Education) that seeks to identify usability, enjoyment, and potential effectiveness of a computer assisted instructional K-5th curriculum. Each participant will participate in an IQ measure (Woodcock Johnson), a language assessment (TOLD), and an ASD rating scale (CARS). Additionally, each participant will work on a sample version of TeachTown: Avenue, as well as an interview in regards to his or her experience working on the curriculum. The study will likely require 3 two hour sessions of which the child needs to be present and participating. Results of the evaluations and interviews will be shared with the Jigsaw Learning research staff and grant committees and will also be available to parents and/or guardians and the participant’s school with a release of information agreement (parent/guardian’s permission).

Participation Criteria:

Have had a formal diagnosis of ASD, Asperger’s Syndrome, or other related diagnoses

Ages Kindergarten through 5th grade

Average or above cognitive abilities

Verbal skills


If you are interested in participating in this study,
please contact: Manya Vaupel, MEd, BCBA: manya@jigsawlearning.com
All participants will receive results from evaluations and a beta membership for TeachTown: Avenue upon availability.
The study will take place in at the Jigsaw Learning office
in the Eastlake neighborhood of Seattle.
