HearBuilder® Monthly Subscription (1 Student)

HearBuilder Online builds following directions, phonemic awareness, sequencing, and auditory memory skills. There are five subscription levels to meet your needs:

  • Home (1 student)
  • Home + (2-4 students)
  • Educator (20 students)
  • Educator + (40 students)
  • Administrator (Multiple Educators and Students)

The HearBuilder Online Home Monthly Subscription gives one student access to four different programs:

HearBuilder Following Directions (with Basic Concepts)

From the first day of school, students must be able to follow directions in order to focus on their classroom activities, interact well with other children, and conduct themselves appropriately. With HearBuilder Following Directions, they:

  • Develop essential listening skills as they learn 40 basic concepts.
  • Learn to follow five different types of directions: Basic, Sequential, Quantitative/Spatial, Temporal, and Conditional.
  • Earn tools to become Master Toy Makers while building Toy Central factories.

HearBuilder Phonological Awareness (Speech Sound Awareness for Reading)

Before children can learn to read, they must be aware of the sounds that letters make in words, syllables, and sentences — or, in other words, they must have good phonological (sound) awareness skills. With HearBuilder Phonological Awareness, students:

  • Practice nine activities to help them hear the sounds in words, syllables, and sentences.
  • Move from basic activities (Sentence Segmentation, Syllable Blending, Syllable Segmentation) to more difficult ones (Rhyming, Phoneme Blending, Phoneme Segmentation/Identification) to the hardest tasks (Phoneme Deletion, Phoneme Addition, and Phoneme Manipulation).
  • Earn instruments and band members to form the rock band The Phonemix.

HearBuilder Auditory Memory (Strategic Memory Training for Listening)

Next, children must be able to remember and recall information they have learned. With HearBuilder Auditory Memory, they:

  • Practice memory strategies as they recall numbers, words, specific details, and multiple sentences.
  • Learn memory strategies for answering WH questions.
  • Embark on special missions with Recall Agents Kim and Joey to save Memory Town from Dr. Forgetsit.

HearBuilder Sequencing (2- to 6-Step Sequences)

Finally, students use all the information they learned in the first three HearBuilder programs to work on essential language and literary skills. With HearBuilder Sequencing, students will:

  • Practice skills such as reading left to right, understanding important details, predicting, and identifying important parts of stories.
  • Put 120 illustrated scenes in order, starting out with simple 2-step sequences and gradually progressing to
    6-steps.
  • Earn tokens in the Sequencing Fun House to play games in the Arcade and become Sequencing Superstars.

HearBuilder Online Home Monthly Subscription allows you to:

  • Monitor progress and track data for one student.
  • Individualize your student's program.
  • Customize and print reports.

  1. My son was struggling on...
    My son was struggling on keeping up in his kindergarten class. His teacher said he needed support in following complex commands, phonological awareness and verbally sequencing. I began looking into tutoring options and different apps. I found HearBuilder and it was exactly what he needed. He loves doing it and is making great progress! There are so many different options that he is never bored!

    Right now I have 4 kids on the subscription, most of whom are using following directions, but one is using sequencing. I’ll be adding more soon. Yes, I’ve seen lots of progress. At my previous schools, I’ve been lucky enough to have the HB CD, but at my new school, no such luck and no funding. I’ve always had great success and progress with HB in the past and thought it was well worth it to get the online subscription. Thank you!

    I am thoroughly enjoying this program! The students are receptive to it and interested in completing the levels and various activities. Most of my students focus on the phonological awareness and following directions areas. They really enjoy it and I feel it has been most beneficial to them. I am excited to see them continue to improve and use the program. They have been given the opportunity to login and play at home as well. The parents seem to like this aspect as well. I find these apps to be very helpful and useful. They are continuing to improve their skills and I have to think these apps have something to do with that.

However, my students are so EXCITED to be using the online version. They beg me every session to get on and play and what they don’t realize is that they are improving their auditory processing skills in the process! Thank you so much for improving products such as HearBuilder.

  11. I have really enjoyed using this app.
    I have really enjoyed using this app. My little guy is engaged and asks to do “levels” daily. His rhyme and elision abilities have increased, and he’s motivated to gain more band members! I’m using the auditory memory games, as well, and am seeing improvements there. I have been very happy with this purchase and the results. It plays like a game, but delivers results that are increasing academic abilities for narrative and reading skills. I’ve recommended the app to SLP friends and hope to see it in place for struggling readers or even as a first tier intervention for kindergarten students.

  12. We have found Hearbuilder is fantastic.
    We have found Hearbuilder is fantastic, our students are loving the activities and are engaged. We have various students on it for different reasons and they are all showing progress. We had a representative from hearing Australia recommend it to us and it has been great. Our students work on the program independently and with support and the structure has really helped in supporting their learning.

  13. Great product!
    We currently don’t have a lot of students on it because most of our patients speak Spanish. We would love to have a Spanish version or even collaborate to help create one. It’s the most cost effective program I have found though for our English speaking patients with auditory processing, phonological awareness, and dyslexia difficulties because parents can actually have their kids do it in between therapy sessions with minimal parent training and the goals are set up for the child to always feel successful. Kids love it and actually do it. We have had significant success for auditory processing when pairing it with the Listening Program from ABT. I had one 8 year old who could not read and was in a self contained special ed class. After one semester of using these programs together, he was put into general education for the first time ever and he began to read. I have the professional CDs for use in our clinic, but got the subscription to improve effectiveness by adding to the home exercise program. Most of our patients have Medicaid and are low income so they wouldn’t be able to afford HB on their own. It’s a small investment in our end to improve our outcomes and quality of services which improves word of mouth referrals (good for kids and for business as the new referrals more than pay for it). Again I just really wish their was a Spanish option as 80% of our younger patients speak Spanish here in Texas. I really hope others can benefit and access HB. It’s really important to address these issues early and unfortunately the special ed referral process tends to delay timely and individualized intervention. This is an affordable solution for both schools, clinics, and at home. I have tried to encourage some of the school districts we work with to purchase it as I think it can even benefit children without learning disabilities and I will start my own neurotypical child on HB once he starts learning English next year in PreK (we only speak Spanish at home), but often as you probably know, it’s hard to get schools to listen and spend money. Great product!

  14. The program is working really well.
    The program is working really well – when my students are consistent in using it at home ?? Compliance with parents is the biggest hurdle. I had a 5th grader use the auditory processing program – she had MAJOR deficits in auditory memory and auditory cohesion. She finished the program – following my plan of 10-15 minutes daily – and her scores on the TAPS went from well below average on Memory and Cohesion to well within average with an overall score jump from 34% to 70%. I can really see the difference in her performance with me on other tasks as well.

    Finally I purchased HearBuilder! And I am so glad that I did. This program is amazing. It addresses so many important areas, such as phonemic awareness, following directions and sequencing. The built in rewards for the students is a hit (arcade)! All of my students love this program and I love that they have their own log ins and the program tracks their progress. I can refer to this information for IEP purposes. This program has been a life changer for me…I can’t say enough about it. If you don’t have HearBuilder, you are missing one of the best speech therapy tools on the market!

    I like the four different areas that Hear Builder addresses. I especially like the on-line version of this product; that it keeps track of each student’s progress.

  24. I really love it!
    I really love it! In fact, I was able to save the Hear Builder website to “favorites” on each child’s personal chromebook, so that they can work on it in class during “free” time. It’s hard to comment on success rate in the class, as far as carryover is concerned. I may glean more info about that when it comes time for annual case reviews, very soon. However, I am able to see where a child is having a breakdown, and if or how many times they have to repeat a particular level. That is very useful information. That helps me to target that particular skill in therapy, one-on-one, or in a small group.

  29. Everything is going well and I can see a difference in the students.
    Everything is going well and I can see a difference in the students that are actually spending time using the program. Just this week I had a student say, “I get it now! I’m looking for the ones that end the same (on rhyming).” Thank you for making such a great program! I don’t know how I would replicate this through direct instruction and still maintain clean data! I can have several students at a time working on the same task, or different ones depending on the individual needs, and still have each student answering each task, holding them responsible for their learning by increasing their engaged active learning time.

    I have used this in my therapy room for 2 years now and thank heaven it can still be used with the Stay In Place rule which forced us to conduct teletherapy. Grant you, the learning curve is absolutely never ending and this is from an old timer who is very computer savvy as my father was a programmer with IBM in its infancy. Anyway, this is perfect to assign to students online. Not only can you monitor progress, but increase and decrease difficulties of the activities within the program. It is best geared for K-3. It can be used by students who have severe LI disabilities in older grades or who are developmentally disabled or more severe ASD characteristics. Data is provided, time spent on each segment as well. Easy to set up and excellent support from the tech team. I highly suggest you give it a trial for your LI students while we are on teletherapy services. You will more than likely purchase it again once we return to school!

    This program is designed to improve auditory memory skills. The clinician can set the level best for the child, and the listening activities are fun. We are a clinic of 8 speech pathologists, and this program is used frequently to help improve auditory memory and attention. It also keeps records for each of the patients, so you can see progress. Each of the listening activities targets a different element of memory. Expensive, but worth it. We just bought a second one, because it is so popular in our sessions.

    This is a great application program (app)that addresses four areas of auditory processing including: following directions, phonological awareness, auditory memory, and sequencing. The program graphics are clear, colorful and animated. There are many opportunities to practice the goals, which discreetly increase in difficulty. Each goal is introduced, and visually sequenced, so the child knows how many responses are left to complete. Verbal and tangible reinforcements encourage kids at each level, and provide feedback regarding performance. Strategies for success are provided such as visual cues for sentence segmenting and strategies for auditory memory. Loading client information and obtaining written reports are easily accomplished. Customer support for this product is excellent. It is an excellent auditory processing app, that children love to interact with.

  66. Very Comprehensive
    I received this for free to review on my blog. However, all statements are 100% my own. I LOVE that this program doesn’t have to live on your computer. It plays off Adobe Flash. I also appreciate that it isn’t something that your kids can sit and do in a few hours~ it is set up to be a process, with each step reinforcing what was just learned. One of my 10 year olds is severely dyslexic and struggles to read but she was able to set this up on her own. She put her name in and picked her first activity and went right to work on it. I also like that the game unlocks new activities as your child progresses. There are so many different activities within the 4 different programs that I can't even begin to talk about all of them but if your child needs help in any of these areas, I believe that this program can help.

    Quality

    The HearBuilder Home Edition is a great program that can be used for up to 4 kids. Each child is able to select their name at the beginning to resume the level they are currently on. Our 6 and 8 year old have been working on their skills with HearBuilder daily. This great program is also a favorite of our 3 year old but I do have to assist him with some of the bonus games. I started all our kids at Beginners so they could scale through and advance as they practiced skills. Of course, the older two were able to scale more quickly as they worked through the beginner stages. I love that the complete collection contains the option for the kids to switch between learning/working on various skills for: Auditory Memory, Following Directions, Phonological Awareness, and Sequencing. The HearBuilder program does a great job of keeping the kids engaged and interested by changing between practicing skills and playing bonus games and completing missions. Plus, the kids earn awards we are easily able to print out for their hard work too. The Sequencing Program is the favorite of our older two children while our 3 year old prefers to work on the Auditory Memory program. I love the fact that I am able to help our children build on over 40 basic concepts while also building listening skills. I also love that Super Duper Publications included an easy way for me to print progress reports on each child's work. This is a top notch program that our family can't rave about enough. *I received a sample in exchange for an honest blog review.

    We were introduced to Super Duper products at my son's speech therapist's office. Between her office and school, we are excited to bring the same product for learning at home. I love watching him progress at his own pace in the comforts of home. Happy to now have access to all Hearbuilder instead of separate cds.

  70. SDL HearBuilder Phonological Awareness Pro Online Edition
    Extremely pleased with each phonological awareness module offered in this program. My patients are more receptive to completing phonemic awareness activities when presented in such an engaging and entertaining format! I had been using a similar software package but was looking for a fresh, updated program. Hear Builder's Phonological Awareness exceeded my expectations and I appreciate the ability to monitor all of my patients' progress!

  71. Exceptional Program
    My eight year old son reports that he “loves” to play this game and doesn’t even consider it to be a learning assignment. He likes that it has multi-level assignments in a mission format that is especially appealing to my adventure –loving son. He really likes the engaging characters and the interactive plot line as he moves through each level while improving his memory and concentration skills. One of the areas that we have focused on in particular for Adam is that he normally needs to have complete silence when completing a school assignment. This can be a challenge with two younger siblings and especially in the real world. I love that the HearBuilder program allows me to add background noise at the expert level so he can practice playing even in distracting situations.

  74. learning to listen
    This award winning educational game was played by my 8 year old Grand Daughter. She was determined to beat it and sat for over an hour playing all the different top secret missions. This game focuses on remembering what you hear. It works with numbers, words and phrases. I don't know about your children, but the children that I have worked with over the years can all use a little bit of practice in listening skills. She liked the fact that it pasted the time in a fun way, and I liked the fact that I knew she was learning to listen and remember, even though she just thought it was fun. This is a great tool for helping our children expand their memory abilities. This would make a great holiday gift idea and would fit nicely in a stocking.

    This software program was an instant hit with our children. Our two oldest ages 5 and 7 have benefited the most. I love how they slowly build up with remembering specific things first for a few seconds, then they progress to remembering it for 10 seconds, etc. It's a fun, easy and exciting way to help build your child's memory skills!

    After one hour trying the program via the free trial myself, I was convinced it would help my daughter with her auditory memory. She has APD and she was immediately engaged when she tried it. There are hardly an words on the screen, forcing her to listen to the instructions and questions in the games. Program allows repetitions for missed words. Great product. Purchased this together with the Phonological Awareness S/W. Within days I ordered the Following Directions Program also. Will also purchase the 4th in the series Sequencing also very soon. Definitely affordable compared to other products in the market for improving auditory memory for children.

    My daughter an 10-year-old 4th grader. Due to the fact that she had difficulty recognizing words on a page, she was falling behind in her classwork. Homework was a daily struggle too. I had her start playing HearBuilder Sequencing and Auditory Memory about 20 minutes a day to see if these programs could help her. She especially enjoyed the Context Clues in Stories, Reading for Details in Stories, and Story Prediction games. After a few short weeks, she was reading at a mid-5th grade level. I am extremely happy with HearBuilder. It has helped my daughter improve her reading, remember what she read, and understand stories in a way she never has before.

    I am a parent with a daughter, age 11, in 5th Grade. She was having a lot of trouble sounding out words, and as a result was reading well below her grade level. She began using HearBuilder Phonological Awareness 10-20 minutes a day. After several weeks, I received a call from her teacher, who told me that she had made tremendous progress and was now reading on a mid-6th grade level. I recommend HearBuilder 100% to help your child improve her reading skills.

    I absolutely love the professional version of the Hear Builder Following Directions. The option to put in background noise once I know they understand the concepts is a great way to simulate a real classroom setting. It also allows my to let one child independently work on a skill making the group a bit smaller and more individualized so there is less down time. I can then just rotate the kids through so they all get more direct therapy time with myself. All therapist should have this program! Completely worth the extra money for the professional version!

  124. Great product
    I purchased HearBuilder Sequencing to help my 11-year-old twin daughters who struggle with autism. They are several years behind in their ability to communicate,and are currently in speech therapy. This product is especially appealing to my girls because ot it computer based and it progresses at their own speed. They have literally spent several hours at a time practicing these sequencing cards, as advancing to the next level is a great motivating reinforcer. The arcade games that they could spend their earned tokens on were a lot of fun for them, especially the frog jump. The only improvement I would suggest would be to allow the settings to be changed after a child starts the program. It would also be great if the Home Edition also had the feature that allowed the pictures to be turned off, which is currently only available with the Professional package. My girls are both visual learners, and frequently depend too much on visual clues from the pictures to get the right answer, rather that paying attention to the spoken words to find the answer, as their ability to "visualize" what is being spoken to them is very weak due to their autism. Overall, I am very pleased with this product and I plan to purchase similar products in the future.

    As a parent of a child who has a lot of difficulty I am always trying to find ways to keep my son ammused and focused in the learning task at hand but needless to say it has been frustrating to create material that I think will work for my son and disappointing when teh results are so very slow. Then this program was recommended to us through his school and I could hardly contain my excitement. First my son will stay on the computer working for hours when I could barely keep him focused for 5 minutes and the speed in which he is learning the material is astonishing to me. The areas that he was told he is weak in are exactly what the program focuses on and keeps him interested with the the additional games and visual stimulation. I would recommend this for any child not just those needing help, I am no longer scared that my child will not keep up but am excited and relieved that my son may actually understand concepts and function normally in a grade one setting. The focus is so well rounded that every aspect is covered and I have now gone ahead and ordered the other editions and can hardly wait to see the results. There is such a big difference in my sons ability to learn and this is largely in part to this program being able to stimulate him in ways that I was not able to.

  134. Easily adapts to small group instruction
    Excellent product! I was concerned how this would work because I'm a school-based SLP with only one computer & I have a group of 3 students working on following directions. This software is designed for 1 player at a time & adjusts its level of difficulty based on the student's responses - so in a school setting, that would mean either having 3 students alternate turns on one level (which is what I have to do for time sake) - or - allowing each student to complete independent levels in their own "seat" (i.e., there are 10 directives per level - so with one computer, that would be a long wait time for 2 other students!). So here's how I've adapted it to my setting: During a typical session addressing following temporal directions, I will use real manipulatives & verbally say the directions using the same format as the software (i.e., Put ____ in the box, before you put ____ in the box.; Before you put ____ in the box, put ____ in the box.), etc. The software makes my lesson planning a breeze b/c I just practice the same type of directives that are reinforced by the software. My students are motivated to work with me because they want to "play the game" on the computer - which is developing the same skill & they want to "win" that game & are seeing how the skills I'm teaching apply directly to their "world" (i.e., games), so they're motivated to learn during direct instruction. I also provide visual cues by writing directives on the board & having the group work to figure out which directive is first & which is second. I'm hoping to phase out my direct instruction over time & to adapt my directions so that they resemble directives they'd hear in the classroom (i.e., "Before you get out your books and open them to page 20, turn in your assignment on my desk.") This product is excellent!

    I started using HB Auditory Memory with my students today, and it was a hit! I have been using all of the HB programs this year and have been impressed. The programs allow me to rotate students on the computer with one-to-one or small group times and make seeing large groups more manageable. I like the individualization available on the games and that there is enough of the “reward games” built into the system to motivate the students but the majority of their time is spent on the targeted skills. They love them and beg to “play.” It looks like Auditory Memory is another winner -- my first-grade boys gave the spy theme two-thumbs up!

  149. Engaging and Effective
    I love this product - and better still, my seven-year-old daughter with Asperger's Syndrome does too! Not only do the graphics exceed other similar products for children on the market, but the activities are far more engaging than comparable programs. As an added bonus, kids get to "play games" (like driving a truck to the Toy Store) between exercises, which holds their interest. AND those "games" change - such as having the child avoid cars on the journey to the store, the next time she avoids hitting animals on the road, the subsequent game has the child driving at night. All fun changes and something that keeps my daughter wanting to "play" more. Likewise, the changing scenarios for exercise, growing increasingly more difficult, adds to my daughter's ability to focus in listening intently while developing her ability for recall. It forces her to think hard and practice saying what she's heard - improving auditory processing skills while having real fun. I loved this product so much I bought other Hear Builder programs to help my daughter learn additional needed skills. Thanks, Super Duper! You truly live up to your name! (My daughter's speech therapist thinks so too!!)

    I am very happy with the HearBuilder Sequencing software program. I have found so many uses for it not only with young children but also older ones. Sequencing is one aspect of the program, but I also have the children retell stories, answer questions, and if they get the sequence wrong, I have them talk through and look at the pictures to figure out why the pictures are in the wrong order. I also like the sequences that deal with everyday activities that they may do in their home, school or community.

    As usual I wish there were more stories and options, but overall it is a great program and my clients love it. I like the feature of omitting the written words to use for auditory memory, story re-telling, etc.

    I recently bought this for my 4 year old son at the recommendation of his speech therapist. He has spent a few hours on it so far and finds it a little boring; he'll work on the program if I really encourage him but he isn't really excited about it.

    I use this with PreK to Junior High. It says ages 4-9 but my Jr. High students with language processing disorders enjoy it and it is appropriate for their level. I just with the basic directions didn't start out with colors, because a lot of my PreK kids really struggle with colors. It would be better if it started out with big/small. Even with that, it's still a good therapy tool.

    I LOVE the HearBuilder Phonological Awareness program. It is an excellent step in listening skills for my clients. I have used the Earobics product for many years and am excited to have this new resource.

  163. Motivating for child unless stuck on a level for a long time
    Overall, all of my clients enjoy the program. It is easy to track the progress and return to where they finished during their last session. The only thing that I have found is that if a child is stuck in a particular "toy room" (ie. Basic Directions) for a long time, they tend to become bored with it since the same pictures, sizes and colors are used throughout all levels within that room. Overall, however, I am very pleased with the purchase and find that writing my progress reports based upon their performance is easy.

  164. HEARBUILDER BREAKS GROUND FOR LISTENING SKILLS
    As an SLP in a diverse prIvate practice, have been using HearBuilder FOllowing Directions - Pro Edition for the past 2-3 weeks. I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS PRODUCT!! it is multi-leveled and progresses well, according to the client's level of success. The theme of a Toy Factory is very motivating to children of all ages, and the speech quality is 95% excellent. The pacing is a little slow for some people, but it gives an appropriate amount of "recovery time" betwen items overall. I have a severely aphasic adult client and am adapting it for his use, too. I find that some younger children can benefit if they point to the items on the screen when they are too young to manipulate the mouse. The record-keeping is great, too, although I would like the option to highlight and select only the results I want for printing, rather than the whole progress list for each client. But this is a minor concern relative to the "big picture" of this excellent resource!

  165. Hearbuilder Following Directions
    I have used the program with students from 4 to 21 years of age with a variety of language learning and social disabilities. The students like the vieo/audio components, as well as the intermittant games. I have found the program to be fatiguing for students at the higher levels. The program is a great way to teach listening strategies such as subvocalization and visualization once students are familiar with these concepts. The program has real life applications both at school and at home when teachers and parents are cued in to using key words. I am very happy with the product and would gladly recommend it to other professionals both in the schools. I also use it in my private practice to provide measurable results.

    I teach a special day classroom for third through fifth graders with autism. This is a great game that focuses on emerging reading skills. We play the game together as a class on a SmartBoard, but I also use it one-on-one with students on a PC.

    My 5 year old son Christopher, has sensory processing issues that have affected the area of communication. His speech therapist recommended to get this program.

  170. My grandaughter loves her new game!
    I ordered HearBuilder Following Directions for my grandaughter who was recently diagnosed with APD. She is a relatively bright child who reads very well, but was having difficulty in school (especially with listening, following directions and testing). Hearbuilder was one of the things recommended for her. She has been using it for two weeks now (15 minutes per day) and, surprisingly, enjoys it very much. Although we see some progress, it's too early to tell just how helpful this will be for her. The game, as she calls it, seems to have really captured her interest. We feel that there will be some improvement in the previously mentioned areas of deficiency in the near future.

    Just purchased your HearBuilder Home edition for following directions to use with my son who has autism. He loves it! I love the way it levels up to have backround noise which is one of my sons biggest problems. The only thing I would change is make it so the child can't leave the program on their own. Thanks for making such a great product!

  172. Worth the Money
    This program is very good for building early reading skills. My son really enjoys the music the rock band plays throughout the program. My only complaint is that some of the levels have a break between each level and some do not. I wish that there was a game or a musical break between each level.

    My son enjoys this so much. He has autism and has difficulty with auditory processing, it is hard to know what he really needs help with due to his language delays. Hearbuilder makes it so easy with all the activities in order from easy to most difficult. It grows with your child as they get better at it, it moves on to the next skill level.

  175. We Are The Phonemics!
    This has been a lot of fun AND learning for both my 7 year old and me. A lot of programs seemed to be for a pre-school age group, but Hearbuilder was mature enough for my son to appreciate it. My only complaint pertains to unlocking certain levels. I understand that going through all levels is part of the lesson. But, he caught on fast, which means he also got bored fast, which led to frustration and dread for a program that I knew he already really liked. He didn't want to repeat and repeat--he wanted to move on, but we couldn't because they were locked. Regardless, we all took turns in our family getting through the levels so that the more difficult ones could be unlocked, and my son could complete them. It was nice when he returned to laughing and saying "We are the phonemics!" again everyday.

  179. Great Product
    I use this with the kindergarten classes at my school and have the students work on their skills independently. The students who know their phonological skills get through the tasks really quickly, but for those that struggle, it has benefited their skills in the classroom.

  180. Overall a good product
    The HearBuilder Following Directions program is great as a supplement with therapy. The student can do the work independently while the SLP has another group of kids. I like to teach the child the strategies track data and then let them work independently. The only bad thing about this program is it doesn't always give the child enough choices and then they do not have to actually listen to the directions, but use an educated guess to get it correct.

  181. Educational and Fun Game
    This computer game has been very successfully used, repeately, with my students with Autism (ages 9-11). This program is exteremely engaging due to the graphics, bright colors and adorable characters. My students, who learn best visually are not only engaged but are learning sequencing, following directions and higher level concepts such as conditional statements. The program keeps track of their scores so progress is clearly demonstrated and progress they are making! I especially like that the program provides many opporutnities for practice and does not let them progress until they reach 80% accuracy. I would purchase similar programs if available.

    Hearbuilder has been such an asset to my therapy sessions this school year. My students are really engaged in the activities. They can't wait to see who has become the latest "Master Toy Maker."

The speed and voice used on the product is very clear. My student 's are choosing this as a reward for hard work which tells me the software is very engaging. The database provide some nice documentation to show the students, parents and teachers the student's progress. Thank you for this product!!

  184. Webber HearBuilder Following Directions
    I LOVE this software. My 6-yr-old has Autism & has trouble paying attention & processing details. This program grabs her attention & progresses at her level. She is so proud when she answers correctly, she just wants to keep going. It has even captured the attention of my 4-yr-old who now has her own account & is moving at her own pace. I find they are both more attentive when listening to anything & are able to follow more complex directions. I recommend this highly for children with receptive disorders or even neurotypical kids eager to learn!

    This program is very engaging for my patients. They particularly like the break activities at the end of the inspection, packing, and shipping levels. As a clinician I have a few areas of dissatisfaction. Having to close out and restart when I want to go to another door or level, and how the difficulty level increases so quickly. For normal children without speech/language deficits it is okay but for the children I work with it would be better if the task did not increase so quickly in difficulty.

  188. Webber Hear Builder, "Following Directions" software
    I have just started to use this software in my speech and language classroom. It is so easy to use. I first introduced it using my smartboard for the entrie class and now the children take turns logging in and doing it independently. I don't do anything, except monitor to make sure each child is doing the work under his/her own name. The children are all anxious to take a turn and appear to enjoy it with little prompting from me. They can work at their own speed, but they have to complete /master one level before they can go to the next level. The next time they sign on, it picks up where they left off. The program keeps track of the data and progress of each child! Imagin taking that data to IEP meetings to show progress! The data can be reviewed or printed out , for the entire class or on only one child, as needed! I am already seeing an increase in auditory skills from my students! I just wish I had this program at the beginning of the year and can't wait to see the results in the 2010-11 year. I am already planning to base my professional development plan using this program for the next school year, which will be a breeze, since the data is all collected for me! I can supplement my lessons to correspond with any areas of weakness I see when reviewing the data! Thank you for making such a great program avaliable and at an afforable price! This is truly the type of educational software we have been asking for!

    Unfortunately, this software was too abstract for my students. The unrelated visuals confused them. My Students (ages 8 - 18) who are on the spectrum need to use various senses, i.e. visual, auditory and kinetic. This program frustrated them.

  195. Amazing Results
    This product is incredible! In a little over 1 month my son has improved in leaps and bounds. The speech therapist cannot believe how attentive my son is and how he listens to the detail in instructions (the actual task and the order it should be conducted in). It combines quite complex instructions into a fun activity. He is rewarded when he does well and completes a level. It creates independence in learning and a renewed interest in ACTIVELY listening to what we say to him now. THANK YOU SO MUCH you have prepared our son well for school this year.

  196. HearBuilder is Fabulous!
    I purchased the HearBuilder software in the Professional Edition to be able to have an unlimited number of students participate using the software. I have used the software with neurotypical children and seen progress with the ability to follow multi-step directions with temporal, spatial, and basic concepts. Additionally, I used this product with several children with Autism who found the program engaging and easy to participate with. It has been a Success all around!!

  197. Hear Builder good for many young ages
    Hear Builder has been a great way to teach strategies for following directions. It gives another avenue for children to learn various types of directions without always hearing my voice. I'm able to use the directions they give and teach them ways to follow them. I have used this program with children from 1st to 5th grade. At times the levels seem to take a long time to achieve and for some of the students this is challenging and they begin to lose interest. I wish it had short rewarding games at the end of each level instead of just on some. Overall, the students enjoy "making toys" and feel accomplishment when they pass a level.

  198. Love Hear Builders
    I have several students that I work with that have difficulties with listening and following directions. At times during my therapy sessions, I will let a student go to the computer and put the head phones and work on this program and after one or two errors, at the most, they start to focus on listening the 1st time and getting the correct response. It has helped them in conveying messages back to their teacher for me, also! They are remembering details better.

  199. Everyone needs this!
    This program is fantastic! I work in a kindergarten and I don't know a single child who wouldn't benefit from this program! I think that it should be implemented in every kindergarten classroom (and some higher grades too!). My favorite feature is that it doesn't need to be installed onto a computer...just pop in the disc and it runs! If you have a district like mine, where you need permission for every move you make that involves technology...this is a great program for you!

  200. Wow!
    What a wonderful program. The students that I am working with it love it so much that they don't even realize that they are doing work! I especially like that you can add background noise which truly simulates the reality of how our students must function in the classroom. You just never cease to amaze me with your products. I highly recomment this.

  201. HearBuilder- a terrific therapy tool
    I run a program at our office called "Language through Literacy". Many students in our reading program have underlying language issues and more specifically, with auditory comprehension. With Hear Builder, we can work on comprehension skills in an organized and very effective way. Even better, the children love it, so they give it all their attention and focus. The way the program was designed, as a toy factory in which the children select, produce, organize, pack and deliver the toys is nothing short of brilliant. You don't often see big smiles when it's "work" time but with HearBuilder, I do!

  202. Great Program
    I was looking for a program to help my APD daughter. I searched and struggled with a decision between Earobics and Hearbuilder Phonological Awareness. After much deliberation, I finally decided on Earobics because it was the only program that I had heard about prior. When we received Earobics( which we purchased from Superduperinc) we were initially super excited. Unfortunately, our excitement turned to frustrations. Tons of issues downloading on microsoft Vista and to our surprise, the graphics are completely outdated and boring. My 6 year old APD daughter quickly tired(after day 2 ) of the rudimentary graphics and the muddled sounds effects. I, personaly, was not impressed with Earobics at all and often found myself fighting wih my daughter to engage with the program for just 15 minutes. Out of sheer desperation, I finally decided to give Hearbuilder phonological awareness a shot and I'm thrilled I did. HearBulider is what Earobics claims to be. Seriously. My daughter now thinks she is playing a fun game and will often ASK to play it. The graphic are amazing and completely engaging. And unlike Earobics, the sound quality and child participation are engaging and not annoying. I feel bad that I wasted my money with Earobics, but we feel blessed that we found Hearbuilder. Honestly, the best and most affordable program out.

  204. Wonderful Product
    I purchased this program for my 4 year-old son, who has receptive language/auditory processing difficulties. He likes it so much that he asks to play it every day, and I was very pleasantly surprised by how well he progressed through the levels. In my opinion, this program does an outstanding job of providing a wide variety of direction following activities, which range from simple to very complex, while keeping it fun for the child. The concept of the game is well thought-out, the graphics and colors are eye-catching, and even the accompanying soundtrack is appealing. An outstanding program overall.

  205. HearBuilder - Following Directions
    I purchased HearBuilder Following Directions, and use it with many students of all different ability levels. The graphics are motivating, and the students find it rewarding to get to "go into" the next room of the toy factory. It's a great way to target direction following skills, allows you to track which type of concept/skill is the most difficult for the student, and is very user friendly. The software provides many repetitions, and allows the student to remain working at a certain level until s/he has reached 80% accuracy. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a fun way to teach basic concepts, direction following skills, increasing attention, auditory memory, and auditory/visual discrimination.

    My kids all love using this program. I love that you can change the settings for each student. It is even great for my 4th and 5th graders because I can start them at a much higher level. I also love that you can easily see how they did at a given level.

    I love the new Hear Builder Following Directions Software! I use it for many of my students who have trouble following directions or understanding concepts. I have been able to use it as a "reward" for one of my autistic students who loves computers; while also targeting his concepts goals! I am also using it for one of my students who has difficulty with color concepts. I LOVE how you can save the data, print data, etc There is nothing I don't love about this program. It is so hard to get kids motivated yet work on following directions. This is perfect because it also allows them to play little mini games after each level.

  210. Love it, but would make minor changes
    I love my HearBuilder software. My kids seem to enjoy working with the program. I can see them learning and being able to apply concepts they are not that familiar with. It is especially helpful with those ESL students who already have difficulty with some concepts. All this said, there are some things I wish that were different with the program. I wish the software was able to be installed onto more than one computer. It is impossible to use when there are small groups within the same classroom. It would be nice to have the entire group working on the program at their own level rather than one at a time. Also, I wish when documenting progress, you were able to indicate the number of times the children use the repeat button. Other than these 2 minor things, I have really enjoyed working with this product and would recommend it to other professionals and parents!
