Does/ Could Time4Learning work for your special needs student?

Why does Time4Learning work for special needs?

Time4Learning provides a comprehensive curriculum that allows children to easily get comfortable with the system. The levels for language arts and math programs are independently set for each child. This helps children who perform or progress at vastly different levels in these major subjects. Children progress at their own rates using multisensory learning that helps each learning style. The computer is very engaging. Some children, when faced with text books or non-interactive environments, exhibit ADD/ADHD-like behavior, but, when faced with an interactive system, they are often successful in focusing and learning. The computer is impersonal so children on the Autism spectrum(specifically children with Aspergers Syndrome and high-functioning Autism) learn without the distraction of interpersonal relations.

It doesn't work for everyone of course, it never could.

I just wanted to say thank you for Time4Learning...
it was a great tool for Zac through the summer, and he was asking yesterday even to do "his work." I would definitely recommend this program to other families. I think it offers great characters and fun learning activities. It also gives you a chance to monitor the progress, and you can even print out reports and activity pages that your child completed. What more could you ask for? Also this is very kid- friendly -- Zac was able to move around the site somewhat on his own.

The content was varied and was able to keep Benjamin engaged without frustration.
It also moved him gradually through the skills and once mastered, he was appropriately quizzed. The timer was also beneficial as Benjamin learned that once it got to "0" he was free to go to the playground, where he primarily went to the "PBS Kids" site. I also feel that the "Magic Hand" was instrumental in aiding Benjamin in how to proceed with the lessons.
