Welcome to Mama Bear’s house! Here children aged between 2 and 6 years can practice a range of auditory skills. The Sounds at Home app was designed by a Speech and Language Pathologist to help young children be aware of sounds in their environments and sounds in words as well as following instructions which requires auditory memory.

All this learning occurs within the context of a house using familiar vocabulary. Research has shown that there is a strong correlation between phonological awareness and early reading skills (T. Hogan, H Catts & T Little. 2005; S. Rvachew. 2007).

Mama Bear welcomes the children to her home where they will experience 3 different rooms that target many different skills.

1)Auditory Awareness - sounds in the living room

Children will listen to various sounds and identify the source of the sound that they hear.

2)Phonemic Awareness – in the kitchen

There are 3 levels to the game with 20 directions each. The children find rhyming words and identify initial and final sounds in words.

3)Following directions – in the playroom

There are 4 levels with 20 different directions each.

The instructions become increasingly difficult ranging from identifying objects, following simple instructions, following 2 step and temporal instructions.

Children are rewarded by building a puzzle when they accumulate enough points.

The Sounds at Home app is easy to navigate and allows users to employ several tools to perform the following tasks:

-Enter multiple students
-Change settings and use randomization
-Select auto-paging
-Enable and disable score sound
-Track correct and incorrect responses
-E-mail results at the end of the session
-Backup and restore data
