The reason we do what we do is now 21 years old. We threw change at him from early on so he loves to go to new places and do new things! He loves to ride his mountain bike on trails and we just got this tandem to start doing longer on-road rides. We did a 34 mile ride the week before the deluge of rain that hit Columbia SC a few weeks ago. We finally got back out this last weekend!

Next DT Trainer Feature: New Report -> Student Configuration & Status!

YouTube videos & websites as reinforcers…
Tell us what YouTube videos and websites that you are using as reinforcers in the DT Trainer. What are the links? Would you like to share with us any related stories? Send your links and comments to Support@DTTrainer.com!

TIPS!
  • Backup Your Students: Upon exit of the DT Trainer administration, the DT Trainer will give you a friendly reminder to backup your student data and tell you when you backed up last. The backup is streamlined and only takes a couple of clicks if you have already set the backup location. It is generally a good idea to backup the student data and configuration at least weekly.
  • Send SLP the Student Train States Report: For students that have very poor expressive language skills, it is frequently hard to know what they know receptively. A student’s Train States Report filtered for the “Maintenance” and “Proficient” items, is the hit list for expressive and functional language development and in general making the knowledge functional. Frequently send the SLP this report as her/his hit list to make their time more efficient working on items that we have proof the student has receptively. Include others in the team and send home as well so that everyone is working on making this new knowledge functional. Use the “Email” button on the Student Train States Report and configure the SLP and other team members on the recipient list.

AS USUAL… Check your version! Current DTT Version: 2.6.0.0
  • RUN YOUR UPDATES: Depending on your settings, the DT Trainer will ask you to check for updates periodically when you launch the administration. If you have not done this in a while, you should also check for updates under the Common Administration, Maintenance Tools. In the updates tab, select the top radio button to see all the updates not already installed on the computer and install.
  • Please contact us if you need any help or guidance in getting the most out of your DT Trainer and Activity Trainer licenses.
  • As long as you have current Updates and Support on your license(s), new installations or reinstallations should be done from www.dttrainer.com -> Support -> DT Trainer Support… Or click here: www.dttrainer.com/support/dttrainer/ This is our latest installation image. If you do not have current Updates and Support for your license(s), email us for a quote.
  • If you need to move licenses, Authorization Codes need to be released to reregister. You can use the Unregister button to make licenses available for reregistration. If the computers were reimaged or unusable, you need to email us the codes so that we can release them for reregistration. Email support@dttrainer.com
  • Reminder: If you still have old versions of the DT Trainer or Activity Trainer, they will not run on Windows 7, 8, or 10. Email us for a quote to update old licenses.
  • Tell teachers and others with special needs students that are 2 to 9 developmentally about our 30 day free trials from our website.
  • Email us for a quote if you would like to use the programs in additional self-contained classrooms.

Self Paced Training Videos Released!

Powertools for Autism and Other Learning Disabilities

Now Available! New DT Trainer Self-Paced Training Videos!

Designed to be BETTER than live webinars! This training covers DT Trainer version 2.6.0.0 and later.

The new training videos replace our DT Trainer Basic Training webinars.

We will still host DT Trainer private webinars for customers as well as special topics webinars. We will also provide basic Activity Trainer webinars until we have the self-paced training available for that product.

_blank
  • The new training videos consist of 10 parts from about 3 to 20 minutes long per module for a total time of less than 1 ½ hours. We go deeper into many areas than we did with live training as we are able to produce a more efficient explanation along with animated graphics. You will also be able to pause, replay, or even speed up the video to accommodate your learning rate. There are “Pause this video and go try it” points with activities facilitating hands on opportunities. This resource helps busy teachers work the training into their busy schedule. Each section gives the video duration, helping the teacher decide when she/he can work in the training.
  • This is an excellent resource for group training with the pause points allowing inclusion of hands on training, group discussion, or collaboration.
  • Administrators can view the complete training to understand the DT Trainer educational resource available to their teachers. Administrators should at least view Part 1 for a product overview, and then skip around sections to get the depth of understanding they need.
  • Support staff should view all the videos to understand the training tool now available to their teachers and point teachers to sections that will aid in the understanding of the program or answer a question.
  • Experienced DT Trainer teachers should view the entire training or skip around to fill in gaps in their knowledge of the DT Trainer. We recommend the “How It Works’, “Making Changes”, “Reports”, and “Maintenance Tools” sections. The reports section has been significantly expanded from previous trainings and includes the newer features, and the pause points and exercises will help teachers get more out of the reports. A solid grasp of the “How It Works” section will help teachers read reports and get more out of the program for a wider range of students.
  • New teachers to the DT Trainer should plan on viewing all the video training. Hands on learners need to do all the pause point exercises.
  • Here are the segments of the new video self-paced training:
    • Part 1 – Product Overview (3:08)
    • Part 2 – Content Overview (2:56)
    • Part 3 – Reinforcer Overview (8:23)
    • Part 4 – How it Works (19:14)
    • Part 5 – Administration Overview (3:38)
    • Part 6 – Managing Students (7:50)
    • Part 7 – Making Changes (13:00)
    • Part 8 – Reports (19:46)
    • Part 9 – Maintenance Tools (5:05)
    • Part 10 – Getting Started (2:35)

We will be doing further tweaks in the next days and weeks to make further improvements to an already excellent training resource. We have also created a development environment to update the training as we continue to upgrade the DT Trainer. We will create additional training videos for individual product dialogs and special topics that will complement and extend the basic training videos. Look for future announcements!

The new DT Trainer training videos can be accessed from links on our website or from the following link: http://www.dttrainer.com/dt-trainer-self-paced-training/
NOTE: If videos do not play in Internet Explorer, use Chrome or another browser.
Soon the training videos will be integrated into the DT Trainer as well!

If the computers were reimaged or unusable, you need to email us the codes so that we can release them for reregistration. Email support@dttrainer.com

New DT Trainer Release: 2.6.0.0

We have just released the latest version of the DT Trainer. There is a major new feature as well as other improvements.

  • We have completed the Report Emailer feature in the DT Trainer. On most reports in the DT Trainer there is now an “Email” button. With a click, create a PDF file of the viewed report and open the Report Emailer dialog. If the recipient(s) have already been set, simply click the Send button. Recipients can easily be added and will be remembered for use in the future. The recipient list has check boxes, making it easy to select some recipients to email and not others. These selections are also remembered. The subject and message are automatically generated and editable if you want to add anything. This feature makes it very easy to send in class and student level reports to interested parties like supervisors and educational team members. There is hover help over controls and data fields, messages to guide you, and a “Web Help” button to bring up additional information from our website.
  • We have changed the week selection method for weekly reports to make it more efficient to navigate between weeks. Instead of a drop down menu of the weeks, there is a list now to the left of the report so changing the viewed week is a single click.
  • We have made various other changes for report readability that will make it easier to zero in on the critical information.
  • This release is the start of a series of improvements to make training information more accessible and provide a range of reports to meet the needs of different types and levels of users.

Happy New Year – Tips & Comments

Powertools for Autism and Other Learning Disabilities“>

DT Trainer / Activity Trainer Announcements & Webinar Training Schedule

Happy New Year!

*** We hope you had a nice holiday break with friends and family and will have much success in your efforts this next year to help your special students and children. ***

Happy Birthday DT Trainer!

The DT Trainer is now 15 years old, has come a long way over that time and has already helped hundreds of thousands of students and children. We are far from done with the DT Trainer and the Activity Trainer. We are looking forward to releasing significant upgrades to our products this year starting with a DT Trainer update in the next week or two. Stay tuned!

More Customer Comments

  • “love DT Trainer… thanks for creating it”!
  • “You have provided an outstanding product for a ridiculously low price.”
  • “I have seen incredible improvements in my verbal and nonverbal students.”
  • “My teachers and therapists absolutely love DT Trainer!”
  • “I think that this is a great way to get even more hours of ABA a week.”
  • “…this is a really beneficial and appropriate program for students with autism and other attention/learning disorders.”

DT Trainer Tips

  • Take a few minutes to look at the student data for the class and each student.
  • View the System and Student level Trend reports. Use the radio buttons to change the viewed data on reports.
    • Use the System level report to determine for which students you need to take a closer look at with the Student level report.
    • Look for consistency of use by each student… ~ 15 to 20 minutes per day.
    • Look for learning issues by comparing % Correct data between the Train, Random, and Maintenance Mode trials.
    • For newer students on the DT Trainer, check the Prompt Analysis section of the Student Trend – Statistics report for any issues..
      • Prompted trials should have very high % Correct rates.
        • Look for students not understanding prompt (low % Correct rates).
      • Unprompted trials should have ~ 75-90 % Correct rates.
        • Look for students not learning programs (low % Correct rates). Check the Trials data and the Trial Results Report to determine if problems are with specific content programs or across programs.
  • View the “Train States” report.
    • Print report to get a mid-year snapshot of what the student has learned, is learning, and will learn (include the “Untrained” items).
    • Make sure student does not have too many programs active. Deactivate (toggle active) some programs if necessary in student programs list.
    • Look for programs where items are not advancing well. Student may need a prerequisite content program or other skills.
    • Look for not very many items in the “Untrained” state. You may need to add or active more programs.
  • Please contact us if you need any help or guidance in getting the most out of your DT Trainer and Activity Trainer licenses.
