My son has CPAD. This program seems to be helping.

Excellent Software

#HBHE244 – HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Home Edition
Despite having APD, my daughter reads very well, that is, after she has memorized the words as a 'picture' rather than phonological components. This software is definitely helping. Purchased this along with Auditory Memory & Following Directions. My daughter finds it challenging and fun.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. For the last several years I used another (similar) program, but this program far supersedes that program and my expectations. Plus it was cheaper!! Very well worth the money!!

We are currently using the HearBuilder series in a computer lab setting to provide services to a variety of speech and language delayed clients. it provides us with the ability to serve several children at one time. The clients are able to log themselves in and begin to work at their designated levels very quickly. Love the data!

Good for pure phonological kids
by Gemma,  NY
#HBHE244 – HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Home Edition
The hear builder is fun, good for the kids with phonological awareness difficulties. It would not work so well with some of the spectrum kids that the earobics works with as it has a lot of social language concepts that it uses as reinforcement.

Great program!

#HBPE255 – HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Pro CD
We are very excited with this program. The students enjoy the activities and are willing to work hard.

This has been a wonderful tool to use with my slow readers to help teach them phonological awareness. They love "playing" and I can see their skills increase with each session.

#HBPE255 – HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Pro CD
I like this program very much. It works on the much needed areas of phonological awareness. I wish it would have required the children to work through the first three areas before they can move on to other areas.

I have tried the sample disc and was impressed! Can't wait to get my copy and get started with the entire program. The kids will love it!

Great Product

#HBPE255 – HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Pro CD
My students enjoy working on the computer with this program. It is a great way for them to practice and improve their phonological awareness skills. I am very satisfied with the built in tracking system and the progress reports that can be printed off for each student. The only thing I would change is some of the visuals they use during the game and how the screen is set up. Some students found a couple of the games confusing because of the visual set-up. Overall, a great buy!

I love all of the HearBuilder computer software. The activities hold the students interest, give good data for teachers, and are a nice tool to have for RTI.

Phonological Awareness Hear Builder

#HBPE255 – HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Pro CD
This is a very interactive program that allows for an immediate reward when the child is successful. Kids love it! It is very user friendly for the clinician as well. Skill levels can be set for individual children and their names/scores are saved on the harddrive.

What did I do without this?
by Cara C.,  New Jersey
#HBHE244 – HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Home Edition
I am a speech therapist and a parent of a child with auditory and language processing difficulty. Hearbuilder keeps him motivated! He asks to play the games that make his brain stronger every day!

HearBuilder Review
by Suzy,  Miami, FL
#HBHE244 – HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Home Edition
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.

Excellent Product

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.

Engaging for students!
by Natalie,  Florida
#HBPE255 – HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Pro CD
So far, this program has been a hit with my students. They love the band theme! And because of my high caseload at school, I love the ability to use it with unlimited number of students.

Very easy to order

#HBHE244 – HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Home Edition
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.

Worth the Money
by Karen M.,  Houston, TX
#HBHE244 – HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Home Edition
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.

I love this computer software. It is easy for the kids to use and they love playing the games. They score sheets are great data to use for progress monitoring.

We Are The Phonemics!
by Laura Lewis,  Dublin, Ohio
#HBHE244 – HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Home Edition
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.

HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness
by Connie T.,  Spartanburg, SC
#HBPE255 – HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Pro CD
HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Software Program is excellent! The range and progression of phonemic awareness skills is thorough. Two tremendous features are the unlimited number of students that can be entered and software that plays from the disc so it travels easily from school to school. My students work independently and persistently at their skills so that it is almost like having an assistant working with me. Without time limits, the children really work for accuracy. When they grasped that the only way to get to the stage and direct the performance was to master a skill, they began to advise each other to listen and think. They begged to come back before school and over recess. The vocabulary is sophisticated and challenging and causes eye-rolling at my therapy table but doesn’t at the computer. The record keeping and printable goals are very useful. This is the most useful material I’ve bought from you.

I love it!!!!

This is a brilliant program!! I can listen while my son works away on the program. He is really engaged in the program and asks to play "toy factory". Well done Hearbuilder!!!!!!

Great Product

#HBPE255 – HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Pro CD
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.

Webber's HearBuilder
by Tasha C.,  Baltimore, MD
#HBHE244 – HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Home Edition
I recently purchased Webber's HearBuilder Home Edition Phonological Awareness Interactive CD-Rom. My children love it! They asked to do it everyday. They're visual learners and the program is great for children who learn visually. It's a great way to help children who may struggle with syllables and rhyming. Being a busy home school mom this is an excellent resource. I hope there will be more HearBuilder products in the works.

#HBPE255 – HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Pro CD
It is a wonderful product. You can tell a lot of planning went in to producing this product. It seems be very hierarchical in it's lessons planning. 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!!

Let's Hear It For Hear Builder
by Sheila K.,  Prescott, AZ
#HBHE244 – HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Home Edition
We have been very pleased. The program is engaging for students and I like the fact that it is auditory....other similar programs give auditory cues but then gives picture/visual choices. I like knowing that they are really listening and getting it. I also like that I can use it as a reward at the end of an interactive session....because the kids will work for the privilege!

HearBuilder Phonological Awareness

#HBHE244 – HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Home Edition
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.

Excellent program. I use it with entire class on the Intelliboard. The students love the interaction. Also,I can use it with individual students that are having difficulty with a certain area.

Great Program
by Yvonne W,  California
#HBHE244 – HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Home Edition
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.

A Therapy "Must have!"
by SLP - School,  Anaheim, CA
#HBHE244 – HearBuilder® Phonological Awareness Home Edition
This program is the only computer software program available that covers ALL the areas of phonological awareness, including phoneme manipulation. The rock band theme is motivating for my students and they love the individual game reward activities. As a therapist, I love that I can individualize each student's intervention according to the various activity domains and multiple skill levels within each activity. Students who were burnt out on traditional phonological awareness activities have had their motivation and interest reignited. I am so grateful for this product!
