I love the HearBuilders programs and this one is no exception! The activities are fun and at the end of each activity the program offers teaching suggestions for auditory memory.

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.

My 6 year old is not great with listening and HearBuilder forces her to focus (something else she has issue with) and listen. Great for building memory and awesome for homeschool!

My daughter is really excited about using the computer lately, so I thought this would be the perfect thing to motivate her. She loved the games and activities. The first night she used it, she was crying when I told her it was time to go to bed because she wanted to “keep playing the game.” The CD includes activities that reinforce listening skills, such as a game where they display pictures of three items. The child hears an auditory list of the three items and then has to remember the order and click on them in the correct order. Then the game moves on to a more difficult task where there are six objects displayed but only three are used. This game would be perfect for a therapist to use with a small group of children. Another activity my daughter really liked was one where it shows a picture of several children and the directions would ask you to click on the child wearing glasses, or click on the boy wearing long pants, etc. The CD is very helpful to my daughter since she is developing number and letter / word recognition. When she is looking at the pictures of different objects, they are always labeled with a word underneath so she can become familiar with the spellings of the words. She really liked one of the numbers games, where secret agents have a mission to type in the secret code. The game plays an auditory message with a secret of numbers. Your child has to listen and remember the order of the three numbers and then type in the code on a number panel which resembles a calculator. These activities are particularly helpful to my daughter right now since she is just learning how to read. She can even play with a friend if she has a friend over. And the best part is she just feels like she’s playing a game, not doing something educational. I would recommend this CD to any teachers or parents looking to focus on listening skills and vocabulary or to build memory and work on word recognition.

This game is the best computer program we've come across. It still continues to be engaging after weekly playing. I love that it builds on necessary skills that will help the child succeed in school, work, and life.

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.

This product is really great. It is the only one I have found that we can do at home that really captures my sons interest. It has great graphics and he likes the mini games. He is learning some great techniques to help him build up his short term memory.

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 homeschooling mom and use HearBuilder with my 8 and 11 year old children, both of whom have autism. They both love listening to the clues and getting to the next level. A great way to improve auditory and memory skills.

I purchased this for my son that has poor working memory on the advice of his audiologist. I have been very pleased with the overall product. I would just like to have the ability to adjust the levels so on items with greater issues he could be on lower levels and items that he is more comfortable with raise the level. This would help with frustration/bordem.

I bought this for my daughter who just started playing the game. We finish two levels each day. She doesn't like the pounding background music when choosing the Robot parts. The idea of being a spy does not attract her that much. However, the concept and practice of brain exercises in memory, paying attention to details are very good. Will trying to finish the game.

I purchased the HearBuilders after taking the CEU course you offered. I love the CEU course and was very interested in the software. WOW WOW WOW...all my students love the program. On the way to speech class, they ask if they can see Dr. Forgetsit!! I love the strategies that use from the software. I explain this to all the students. They said, " I need this help!" I informed my administration about all the HearBuilders and they are thinking about purchasing ALL the software. We have so many students that can benefit from this software.

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.

We're using this at home. My son has only used it a few times, but I really think it has great potential. We'll be trying to fit in 10-15 minutes per day throughout the summer.
