There are two ways to set up a student's program book,

  1. On Thread Web (desktop or mobile)
  2. On Thread's iPad application
    - These two tools have different features.

Use Thread's iPad application to set up a program book using curriculum, or to apply a program to multiple students at once.

Use either Thread Web (for desktop or mobile) OR the iPad app to set up a program book using Thread's program templates with your own original content.
- Access to curriculum is not available at this time. Set up for one student at a time.

iPad Application Program Book Set up 

Required for use with curriculum library, or to set up a program book for multiple students at once.

  1. Open the Thread app on an iPad and login.
  2. Tap the book icon in the upper right-hand corner.
  3. Select a template (your curriculum vs. Thread defaults):
    - To use YOUR curriculum: Scroll down and tap Curriculum from the left column. If the page is blank look for a SMALL HEADING at the top, and click it. Then choose categories or follow on-screen prompts to set up your program book.
    - To set up a program book with your own original contents: select a program type (Discrete Trial, Task Analysis, Frequency, Duration, Interval) from the left-hand column.

Last steps on the iPad application:

  1. Complete (or modify) all fields in the program book template. Fields including the program name, definition, targets, and student selection are required.
  2. Tap Save in the upper right-hand corner.
    - If the program does not save, look for red text indicating a required field is missing.
