HearBuilder Following Directions - TOS Review

Super Duper Publications has hundreds of creative, colorful educational and therapy materials that you and your children will love!

They offer board games, photo cards, softwear, books, and more! To see their eCatalog click HERE!

I was really excited to check out everything Super Duper Publications has to offer and even more so after I found out how many of their products are for special learning needs. Sharon, one of the founders, was a Speech-Language Pathologist. My youngest son was born 14 weeks premature and has been in speech therapy for several years. I'm always on the look out for more ways to help him.

For my review I received the CD-ROM that is for grades PreK-3, ages 4-9 and for 1-4 players.

"Webber HearBuilder Following Directions is an innovative, evidence- based, interactive software program that gives children a systematic way to improve their auditory and following directions skills. At the same time, they will become Master Toy Makers while building their own Toy Central factories.”
"Children learn to: Follow increasingly difficult directions. Show knowledge of 40 basic concepts in five areas: Basic Directions, Sequential Directions, Quantitative and Spatial Directions, Temporal Directions and Conditional Directions.”

There are four different titles that are part of the Hear Builder Series -

- Following Directions

- Phonological Awareness

- Sequencing

- Auditory Memory

In addition to my 5 year old son with speech delays, I also used this with my very wild 3 year old and my 6 year old. They all really enjoyed the program. Now don't laugh, but I also involved my 17 year old son. My older children like to help work with the younger kids, but I had a purpose for asking my older son to help. He is ADHD and I was curious to see (even with a program made for young children) how this might benefit him! I like to use that concept with my older kids, I think it's good for them to help with younger ones and there is always room for review, especially with following directions! :)
