Choosing the right learning tool for a child with special needs can be a daunting task. Every child has his or her own combination of gifts, skills, needs, and difficulties with learning, so each deserves a customized learning program suited to his or her needs.
Parents want learning software that their children will like. However, while there are many entertaining “educational” web sites and software learning programs, few qualify as real educational learning systems, much less as one robust enough to support the special educational requirements of children with special needs. Unlike “educational games,” a learning system provides appropriately sequenced lessons and reinforced learning in an educationally valid, engaging scope and sequence.
When evaluating learning software for special educational needs, you should make sure that it:
- Proceeds at the student’s own special needs pace
- Builds on existing reading, writing and math skills
- Allows placing the child at different levels for math and language arts
- Encourages kids to become active learners through exploration and discovery
- Introduces new learning opportunities in a safe, supportive environment
- Balances learning with fun!

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.

Both of my boys really enjoy the Time4Learning program.
Of course, their favorite part was the play time, but they enjoyed the lessons as well. Thank you.
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.
Elizabeth really enjoys the website.
She especially liked the language sections (stories, family trees, etc.). She also found it easy to use. It is very good for children with Asperger’s, as they are such visual learners and the computer gives prompt feedback.

Lena and I both found it to be age appropriate and interesting.
I LOVED the fact that I could start Lena and she was able to continue at her own pace. Ninety-five percent of the time the language level was appropriate as well as the assignments. Initially, she rushed through to get to the “Playground,” but as she became used to the lesson structure, she forgot about the time and “Playground.” The graphics and sound were awesome. Both Lena and I enjoyed all the adorable characters and narrator’s voices. I would highly recommend this program as a support system during the school year, and SPECIFICALLY, during the summer months (especially if your child is not receiving any services).
Time4Learning was the first online curriculum which help my son’s attention.
My son has attention (ADHD) issues and reading and learning difficulty and after difficulties in school, we find that homeschooling works well for him. Time4Learning has made our days much easier and more productive.
