TAGteach Online Course Open for Registration!

You know how well clicker training works with animals. Did you know that those extraordinary results can be replicated with humans? It’s called TAGteach—a system of marker-based positive reinforcement for teaching humans.

TAG is an acronym for Teaching with Acoustical Guidance. The focused, positive nature of this method yields immediate and stunning results that are clearly evident to teachers, students, and parents. TAG is a modified application of clicker training applied to humans, currently being used in a wide array of disciplines including corporate training, sports, classroom teaching, physical and occupational therapy, music instruction, and more. For an illustration of TAGteach in action, watch this video.
