#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
My K-6 language impaired students are loving heabuilder. They stay easily engaged for 10-30 minutes. I love the variety of concepts the directions cover and the # of levels. Very versatile and useful in the school setting. Also allows me to work one-on-one as i alternate kids on the Hearbuilder.... If you have a large case load and struggle with larger groups, then this product maximizes your therapy time! Because it is research based, I'm extra happy.

#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
This program is designed to capture a child's interest while addressing the child's focus, sustained attention, and memory. One child calls this his "focus game" and loves it.

Love HearBuilder!!

I absolutely love my hearbuilder software! Can't wait to get the rest of them! I'm so glad there is the new online version to make it more portable!

Easily matches IEP goals

#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
This program builds the skills students need to be successful in their general education classroom. It can also be used as a center for students who need extra support in class.

This is just excellent. My son enjoys the challenge, he plays the games and is really obsessed with it, he doesnt want to go to bed. I love it too.

Love it!!!!
by Rachel M.,  Odenton, MD
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
I love this program. What is especially helpful is that you can set the parameters for each student so they are working on exactly what their IEP goals/objectives states and nothing that is over or under thier abilities.

#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
My son loves Playing this. I like that it gets progressively more difficult so its easy to tell when he's getting frustrated and repeat a level if necessary. My son loves the games and those are a great motivator to keep going. I wish there were more of them for him though.

Great product!
by Sherry M.,  New York, New York
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
This has really helped my son develop his listening skills. He also really enjoys the activities and challenges.

great product
by XY parent,  Pittsburgh, PA
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
I believe this is the best product that super duper has on their list. Kids like it and it really increases their attention. However you should not let them play with it all the time. Just limit it for certain amount and you may need to guide them first. When they start to not doing well.. that means the are exhausted and need some refreshing. Excellent product!

Great Product!
by Janice W.,  Illinois
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
I have the professional ed. of this product, and I could not be happier with this purchase. My students love that they can play a "game" on the computer, and I love that they are making great progress toward their auditory comprehension goals.

One of my favorite tools
by Noelle,  Austin, TX
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
This is by far one of my favorite therapy tools for following directions and understanding concepts. It is very motivating for kids and they all love it.

You will love it!
by Krista Lavigne,  Fort Collins, CO.
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
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!

My daughter loves it!
by Deanna G,  Portland, OR
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
I am a homeschool mom of a special needs Kindergartener. She loves hearbuilder and asks to play it. I love that it teaches her to listen to the whole question and that it works in stages to teach her to follow directions.

Following Directions Professional Edition
by Beth B.,  New Canaan, CT
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
I only purchased this software this summer and began using it the last 6 days during the start of the fall 2011-2012 academic school year with my elementary SL/I students, but... I love it! I have unlimited student usage and programing capabilities and it the software maintains all of my data for sharing at PST's, PPT's or parent conferences. But more importantly, the program is extremely user friendly for my students regardless of their reading level and/or ability level because of it's hierarchial presentation and imbedded scaffoliding so that if a student begins to struggle at one level or with a skill the program backs up and provides additional practice, positive modeling, and drill to help the student move forward.

Individual or Class
by Megan W,  Chillicothe, IL
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
I have used this in both one-on-one sessions and with a class of 10 on a Smart Board. It works well both ways. The first level (Toy Room) was harder to keep attention of a group, but as soon as we made it on to the second level (Toy Machine), all the kids were so excited to see what toy came out of the machine! The class now tells me they "love to follow directions!"

Awesome product
by Michelle,  St Paul, MN
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
My daughter loves it! It was recommended to us by her speech "teacher", so we got it and it's great!!

#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
I really like this software for my 7 year old son with ASD. He loves computer games, so it is very motivating to do. He needs help following multistep instructions so this is perfect for him to use.

Only used once
by Julie G.,  Marlborough, MA
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
Although my son has only used it once he loved it. It was challenging but fun, which made him want to pay attention to it. Great software!

excellent product
by Ben A.,  Chicago, IL
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
I ordered this DVD for my 6 year old son who has auditory processing disorder, and he took to it right away. He is very visual and liked the animations very much. At first we sat him down in front of the computer to do the exercises, but within a short time, he was opening the program and doing the drills on his own. He's learning and doesn't realize it, because he's having so much fun. I'm sure there's a parental bias on my part, but since he started using this program, I feel that he has had a significant improvement in his listening skills in general, and a huge improvement specifically in his ability to follow directions. I plan on getting the other 3 DVDs in the series.

Easily adapts to small group instruction
by Amy H.,  San Diego, CA
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
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!

Measurable results!
by Ashley R,  TX
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
This has been a hit with my students in K-2nd grade. Immediate feedback, great graphics, quick games. Great way to change up a therapy session. Printable progress reports are wonderful for documentation.

Fantastic!
by Jacki N,  Darien, IL
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
The kids are loving this program and are requesting to go on it weekly! The data tracking feature cannot be beat and I especially like the background noise feature.

Excellent and Fun Program!
by L.S.,  Dallas, TX
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
This program is wonderful for kids who have goals of following all kinds of 1-3 step directions!

Great therapy material!
by Hillary R.,  Indianapolis, IN
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
As a school-based SLP, a majority of my caseload is working on following directions - especially those that include multiple steps, sequences, & conditions. Upon purchasing this product, I was able to get a SMART board and projector in my room and my 3rd & 4th grade students absolutely love the program & technology upgrade! They all enjoyed choosing different rooms and especially loved the extra motivating games. This program is very simple to use and I easily changed back and forth between students. It has been a great addition to my material collection!

Great!
by Liz C.,  Hammond, IN
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
As an SLP in the schools, I find myself wanting to find ways to take advantage of the technology that is at our fingers. This program is a great way to do that! My students who use the program have fun, and can't wait to do it again!

Excellent!
by Jennifer G.,  La Mirada, CA
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
The HearBuilder Following Directions Home Edition is excellent! It is challenging for my daughter and she is learning and having fun. Your child will completely love this game!

Hear, Hear!
by MaryAnn B.,  Phoenix, AZ
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
I recently purchased the Hear Builder Following Directions Software Program after completing the CEU through SuperDuper regarding the programs's research and results. I have used this program with preschool, Kindergarten and first grade students with severe hearing loss. These children wear bilateral hearing aids or have cochlear implants. They were all so enthusiastic to participate in the listening games, and even ask for more when they are done. The graphics and sound clarity are excellent. I find the manual, goal pages, and record keeping component to be very helpful. Thanks for a great product!

Great Product!
by Karen Fulton,  Sugar Land, TX
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
I love this program! Each game focuses on a different type of directive in a fun and stimulating manner. Directions can be repeated as many times as needed and there is no time limit to complete the task. The price is very affordable and my students love it!

Kids Love This!
by Nicole,  Idaho
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
I work with 25 preschool students and they all LOVE this program...that's why I gave it four stars; however there is one glitch. I am disappointed that you can only retain four students records. I have to delete multiple records daily so more than 4 kids can play. Unfortunately, when I delete a record not only do I loose the students progress, but next time that student plays they have to start over. I have only had this interactive CD for a few weeks, so perhaps there is a way to change the setup to add more students??? Other than that, the program is bright and colorful and provides reinforcing visuals.

A fun way to learn
by Kirsten W,  Sydney, Australia
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
The kids that I have used this with absolutely love it! It's a good way to give children a break from structured work, while still supporting the goals that we are working on.

Motivating
by Cara W.,  Jacksonville, FL
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
My students are excited to make toys on the computer. They like it better than the worksheets that I used to use. I like the goals and objectives I can print. I also like that I can print out reports to take to parent/teacher or IEP meetings.

Fun and Easy to Use!
by Leslie B.,  Marietta, GA
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
I have used this so far on clients aged 4 to 11, and they enjoy it very much! I love the rewarding games in between levels and the record of progress. The only complaint I have is that some of the voicing is a little too slow, which is great for some kids, but actual speakers would give directions a little quicker. However, I am very happy with my purchase!

Hear Builder Following Directions
by Melanie L.,  Bowling Green, KY
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
I love this software! I have used it often in the therapy room and bought another copy this year to share with primary teachers! They use it on a rotating basis in centers with children (not even on my caseload) who have difficulty following directions. It's fun and motivational for them!

HearBuilder Following Directions
by Diane O.,  Pickerington. OH
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
Finally, I have found an activity for following directions that kids love. The visual and auditory feedback given supports students' success, and many have BEGGED to continue to the next level. I appreciate the data provided for each student and research behind the product. Thanks!

Super Duperly Happy

#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
My students are enjoying this product. I have K through Gr. 4 using it right now. It is giving me excellent data for the RtI process.

Engaging and Effective
by Susan M,  Bell, FL
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
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!!)

Fantastic
by Rachelle,  AB, Canada
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
This "game" is great. The kids love playing it. They love that they are making toys. And I love the easy to complex directions. It is great for their listening skills.

The kids that come to our TECH Center absolutely LOVE this software. It works on so many levels and with so many types of children. Our kids with Autism have been especially successful with this software. Thanks so much!!!

LOVE THIS PRODUCT!
by Lauren,  Florida
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
Kids LOVE it. I use it as a reward at the end of each session. Kids don't even realize they are working!

Great Software!
by Lisa K.,  Palm Beach Gardens, Fl.
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
The software is easy to use. I love how engaging it is for the students. They ask to play the games all the time. The data collection is the best feature!

Fun Learning
by Gabriel K.,  Oakland, CA
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
The software is easy to use and even the youngest of children can be instructed on what they need to do. The difficulty can be easily adapted and background noise may be added. Children will learn spatial concepts, basic concepts, temporal concepts, etc. They look forward to learning through this program.

by Kathy B.,  Fairfield, CT
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
Useful software program - students in K, 1, 2 enjoy the activities. I like the opportunity to personalize levels as well as including background noise.

VERY EFFECTIVE AND FUN!

I purchased this DVD for my grandson who is 7 years and has autism. He LOVES it. He asks for it daily and gets so excited to complete each level.

Good for many levels
by Amber Emmons,  IL
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
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.

Hearbuilder - Following Directions
by Jeanette L,  Florence, SC
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
I have used Hearbuilder this year for students with Central Auditory Processing Disorder. The students are currently enrolled in Homeschool sixth grade. The tasks begin on an elementary level, but with these students, it has been a wonderful brain-trainer. The option to have directions repeated is a must-have for the CAPD student. There are five strands of following directions with a print out that pinpoints trouble areas. Even though the students I work with are older than the recommended 4-9 age group, they enjoy the graphics and tasks, as well as the bonus games that are offered upon completion of a level. Levels from beginner to advanced can be set for the individual students. I would recommend this CD for children of any age who struggle with language.

Motivating for child unless stuck on a level for a long time
by Kynda P.,  Fairfield, IL
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
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.

HEARBUILDER BREAKS GROUND FOR LISTENING SKILLS
by JOANNE H.,  SAN DIEGO, CA
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
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!

Hearbuilder Following Directions
by Denise P.,  Morgan Hill, CA
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
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.

Smartboard Fun
by Angela C.,  Saint Charles, MO
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
My kindergartners and 1st graders love this software especially when we use it with our new Smartboard! It is extremely motivating for them and keeps their attention longer than any paper based activity I have used.

Wonerful Product
by Diana Williams,  Wylie,TX
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
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. This program has helped him immensely! He understands more and uses what he learns appropriately. I am so glad that we decided to order this wonderful program!

Great
by Leslie W.,  Chesapeake, VA
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
My son loves working the program and I love all the levels. I feel it has been worth the money.

My grandaughter loves her new game!
by Andie C.,  Richmond, VA
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
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.

Awesome product
by Susan B,  Pinellas Park, FL
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
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!

Overall satisfied
by Jennifer,  South Texas
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
I like that this product it can be tailored for specific criteria (i.e. temporal directions, attributes, etc). Unfortunately, one client I have doesn't quite yet understand that getting the incorrect answer is not a good thing - in the Toy Factory, when he gets the wrong answer, a multi-colored horse is spit out. This for him is a reward. Also, the instructions/intros are a bit long for my kids. Overall, though, I like this product's concept.

Hearbuilder
by Regina,  Kentucky
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
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.

Great new program!
by Marci G.,  San Diego, CA
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
This software is highly motivating for kids. It keeps track of student progress and allows the SLP to print out data collected for individuals. The program can be moved from computer to computer, making it easy to help a wide variety of children in the school setting. It has been helpful in working with children with processing challenges in a motivating and fun way.

Wonderful product!!
by Julie K.,  Westminster, MD
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
I just purchased HearBuilding Following Directions. I love how the levels can be changed for each student. I also love the built in accuracy measures. My students are engaged with the toy factory theme and are motivated when they respond correctly. I have used the product with less-abled students with a Touch Screen instead of a mouse. I like how the matrix size changes in the Basic Directions from 5 to 3 after repeated errors. However, I wish there was an option to start with a smaller matrix size initially.

Multi-purpose Software
by Lisa G.,  Tampa, FL
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
This software is so versatile. I have been able to use it with my Intellectual Disabilities children in a group with a touch screen as well as with my auditory processing disorder students. This program gives you objectives to target on IEPs plus the ability to print out data. I just love my HearBuilder Following Directions Software!

This is brillaint
by Leanne B,  Sydney, Australia
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
This program is amazing. I can let my son play the computer but all the while I can hear the work he is doing on hearbuilder. Better still, I can hear how he is doing and guide him if needed. He even asks to play it!! Well done

HearBuilder rocks!
by Diane B.,  Lincoln University, PA
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
This is a great tool for students of all skill levels/grade levels. I love the fact that I can set each student's level of difficulty, and it keeps track of their progress. Best purchase!

Overall a good product
by Shannon,  Columbus, OH
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
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.

Hear following directions evaluation
by Denise C.,  Richland, WA
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
I have several clients using the Hear-following directions cd. Both kids and parents are liking the program so far. Kids say they like it because it is fun. As a clinician, I like it because it provides lots of adjectives, multiple step directions, and rewards for clients. I am looking forward to seeing how the program is sequenced. In addition, it is challenging enough for clients that attention to task and motivation have, thus far, maintained.

Educational and Fun Game
by Sheryl L.,  Baltimore, MD
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
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.

Hear Builder Following Directions
by Patty T.,  Logan, UT
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
I have really enjoyed using this program. I love that I can choose a level that is appropriate to the student and the variety of direction types that are available to practice. It makes planning and keeping data much easier and the students enjoy doing it.

HEARBUILDER
by Kelly B.,  Slidell, LA
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
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." I post their certificates on the wall over my computer so everyone can see them. It's very motivating when they are playing the activities!

Webber HearBuilder Following Directions
by Brenda,  Montreal, QC
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
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!

#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
Prior to using your Hearbuilder Software my 4-year-old son was struggling with following directions. My son is a very visual learner. Combining visual and auditory senses was a win-win for Corey. He loves to answer the questions and win tickles from mommy! Thank You so very much Christine Thomas Veteran, Mother & Advocate

A must product!
by Sheera L.,  Massachusetts
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
This product is a must. The students are engaged from the moment the computer is turned on. The tasks mirror the concepts and listening demands that are essential for classroom success.

Good product- very entertaining and engaging
by Henrietta S,  Oldsmar Fl
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
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.

Webber Hear Builder, "Following Directions" software
by Vicki P.,  Cape Coral, Florida
#HBPE133 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Pro CD
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!

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.

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!!

SuperDuper Engaging!

This interactive software program is so engaging; my students love it. Once they try it, they always ask, "Can I play that toy factory game on the computer?" If a child only needed to work on following directions, I wouldn't really be needed. It is so well organized, any adult could get the child rolling and monitor their progress. I am certain it will get a lot of use and help me to help my students! Thanks for making direction following therapy FUN! I always dreaded working on it before.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

love it

I have used this with my kids since buying it at the ASHA Convention in November. The kids think it's a blast! And because it has such a variety of tasks, no one has gotten bored with it. I really like the background noise option. That has made it a tremendous addition to therapy for ADD/Auditory Processing clients. And the parents think it's wonderful! They've even shared the title with other families who have kids with these issues.

Great for All Levels

The Hear Builder Software has been a wonderful tool for my ESL students who need visual support. The excellent graphics combined with the clear and simple instructions allow the students to process the directions and build their understanding of important concepts.

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.

I purchased the HearBuilder cd after hearing about it from one of my colleagues. I started to use it with both my language clients and clients in our "Language Through Literacy"program. The children ranged from 1st to 3rd grade. It has been a highly effective program in helping kids learn to pay attention (especially through the auditory channel), and follow directions of increasing complexity, increase memory and learn and reinforce number, temporal and spatial concepts. Best of all, they have fun doing it so it has become a reward for completing other work!

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.

Great CD!

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.

good program
by SLP - School,  Grand Forks ND
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
I was really excited when I ordered the program, and it is good. However, I do have at least one issue. In the first door there is often only one choice that could be right. It would be better if there were more foils that were closer to the target. Even my youngest students have picked up that they only have to listen to the color or size of the object to pick the right one. For example: the small boat next to the ball. There is only one small boat on the screen. They don't have to know the rest to get it right.

So far, I am very pleased with this software. My kids also really are enjoying it. it would be better if there was a game after every section, instead of just 2. Also one boy was quite disappointed that he could not create a Lego Star Wars ship as his toy!!! Thank you!

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.

I'm using this with many of my students who have trouble following directions. For the older students I use the background noise and it's quite a challenge for them. They love it and ask to go to the toy factory when they get their "free time"

Love it, but would make minor changes
by Lindsey M.,  Phoenix, AZ
#HBHE122 – HearBuilder® Following Directions Home Edition
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!

Similar to earobics, HearBuilder is a very useful program to address auditory processing and memory difficulties. My students respond well to the program, and learn strategies that can be generalized to the classroom to help them improve and/or work around their auditory and memory deficits. My only complaint its that "rocket" is pronounced "racket!"
