Product profiles are our way of highlighting some hidden gems from our catalog you may have missed

Let us know in the comments if there’s a product you use you think we should highlight here!

New research partnerships bring new products at Attainment, which we can’t wait to share with you! We will highlight several of them here in the coming weeks, and you can also find them in our annual catalog. Click here to view the catalog electronically or to request your own copy.

First, we’re proud to bring you Stages Math Software! This product, also available as an iPad app, is the result of a new partnership with Madalaine Pugliese, Ed. S, and the Stages Developmental Framework. Check out the Apps4Stages Wiki.

“The Stages framework takes a research-based approach to defining developmentally appropriate observable learner characteristics for each Stage and recommends features to consider in selecting apps or computer software for learning, along with teaching strategies that match and scaffold student need.” 

Stages Math is a unique curriculum for both assessment and instruction. After you tailor the settings to the individual student, the built-in program “smartness” guides students’ advancement in tiny increments, improving number sense and building a meaningful portfolio.

Stages Math App

Additional Stages products will be available soon, including the all-new book bundled with apps and Stages Apps with Report Wizard for assessment.

You can read more about the Stages Framework in the Dec/Jan issue of Closing the Gap (login required), featuring an article by Betsy Caporale, M.S., CCC-SLP-L: “The iPad As An Assessment Tool for Students with Complex Communication Needs.”

  • Will there be a workbook component or curriculum type support to go with the app and program?

      This giveaway will be the software only. We do have a recommended workbook, instructor’s guide, and supplementary manipulatives as separate items or part of our Stages Math Intervention Kit on the product pages of our website. Thanks for checking in, Shayna!

    Will you have a lending program for teachers to try it in the classroom before purchasing?

      Hi Danielle,
      We do not offer a lending program for the software. However, the software is the same program as the Stages Math iPad App and we have a free trial version of the app on the Apple Store if you are interested in trying it out! Hope this helps!
