Pick of the Week: Earobics Interactive Software – Sound Foundations for Reading & Spelling

For years, the interactive software program Earobics has been teaching the phonological awareness and auditory processing skills that learning experts recognize as critical for learning how to read, speak and spell. The program has finally been updated to run on the newest Windows and Macintosh platforms.

Earobics Foundations is the updated version of Earobics: Step 1 and features six interactive learning games with over 300 levels of play. The program is designed for 2 players and recommended for ages 4-7.

Earobics Connections is the updated version of Earobics: Step 2 and features five interactive games with 593 levels that teach the essential skills required for learning how to read and spell. It is also designed for 2 players and is recommended for ages 7-10.

Earobics automatically adjusts to the appropriate skill level of the user based on the correctness of their responses. Earobics uses adaptive training and acoustically modified speech and carefully controls important learning variables. You can use the automated data collection tools to monitor students’ progress, print reports and guide remediation. For each activity, the program automatically generates IEP-formatted goals. Earobics helps students struggling with speech and language while allowing teachers to effectively use collected data to monitor student progress.

Both Earobics Foundations and Earobics Connections have the following system requirements: Windows 7, XP, Vista/MAC OSX 10.2.x to 10.4.x, 10.5, 10.6.
