    Is anyone aware of any language software (identifying foods, objects, people, clothing, etc.) that utilizes ABA teaching methods (with simple correction procedures, discrete trial methods, etc.)?

    Oh my gosh THANK YOU! This is EXACTLY what I was looking for!

    I have a kid that is very aggressive and bites himself and staff members but is SO HAPPY on the computer, and attends very well. I was trying to come up with a way that we could give him computer time but still be meeting the requirements of my ABA school... and here it is!

    They don't like to spend money, but in the hopes of minimizing staff injury and maximizing student progress, maybe they will consider this! THank you thank you!

    I have a demo CDrom of a Discrete Trial Trainer program I received at an autism training I went to. It is at school. I'll look the info up Monday and let you know. It just has a yearly subscription.

    You know... now that I see this post, I'm thinking about getting TeachTown for at least one of my students. I also have one student who gets really aggressive, bites, scratches, but is very interested in computers. The other day he was playing some games on starfall.com, and he was very engaged, very motivated, and it looks like he knew what he was doing.

    I wonder if I should sign up for just one student?... Hmmm...

    Does your student have good mouse skills?

    I just got two touch screens for my computers for mine that don't have good mouse skills. Less than $200 each from Mayer Johnson.

    I really wish there was a program like those that didn't have a subscription fee. Just pop the CD in there and go for it.

    I found another one...http://www.abacorner.com/ . I'm not sure of anything about the program, I just saw it posted on another forum. I can't seem to find a price on the site...which seems a bit odd. Other than that, it appears to be a good program!
