Hey it's macman223, I'm the guy that posted a long time ago about the adaptive technology and computer-assisted learning software titles for The Apple IIe that I used to have with my Apple IIe when I was really little.

The software titles were
Eensy-Weensy Spider & Where Is Puff
Both are By Don Johnston Incorporated

The weird thing is I've been posting on here about this for a long time, and I could never find out who made them, until just recently.
All-through grade school I would always end up using adaptive technology and computer-assisted software from that company usfrom pre-K up to now. I'm in college, and I still use software from them today to help me access electronic versions of textbooks books on my computer.
It wasn't until recently I researched and found out that Don Johnston Incorporated, the company that makes the reading software that I use for reading textbooks on my computer today, just happens to be the same company that made the Apple IIe software I had when I was little. Somehow that name stuck with me and I didn't realize it till recently.

So, now my question is Would anybody happen to have any Apple II software from Don Johnston Incorporated laying around?

We might. The more titles you can provide the better your chances of getting a positive response.

OK. First though, I need to clarify a few things. I did have more titles within the series but those were the only two I remember but I researched information on the titles I remember and found on AbleData that "Eensy-Weensy Spider" is not the exact name. the exact title is "Eency-Weency Spider Game" I also found that the titles were made by The UCLA Intervention Program. I think Don Johnston Incorporated distributed those titles in their catalogs I did find more titles in the series.
Here are more tittles:
If You're Happy And You Know It( I think I had this one)
This is the Way We Wash Our Face
Big/Little I
Wheels on the Bus
Family Fun
and of course
Eency-Weency Spider Game & Where Is Puff

Hope this helps
Thanks
