TEACHTOWN SEEKING PARENTS AND

PROFESSIONALS FOR FEDERALLY FUNDED JumpRope_2.jpg

ONLINE RESEARCH SURVEY

TeachTown has spent the last 4 years helping thousands of children across the country that live with Autism Spectrum Disorders.  Now, TeachTown needs your help to create another software-assisted program for school-aged children with ASD and Asperger’s Syndrome.

With aid from a grant from the National Science Foundation, TeachTown will be conducting a series of research studies to help us develop this new product and we need volunteers.  The results of each study will help in the development of TeachTown’s newest project, an education and treatment program designed for school aged children.

Cooking_2.jpgFor our study, we are looking for parents or professionals working with children with autism or Asperger’s Syndrome to take an online survey.  You must be at least 18 years of age, and your child or the children you work with must be at least 3 years old. 
If you would like to volunteer to participate in this study, please go to our research site http://www.teachtown.com/TeachTownLifeConsentForm/ to get started with our eligibility screening survey.  You may also contact TeachTown by phone (206-366-5585 or 1-800-644-7811) or by email (research@teachtown.com).
