Additional info

Optimized Intervention® Offers Improved Training!
Using our Optimized Intervention technology, Nouns & Sounds begins with an assessment to determine which sounds a student can’t identify. During training, the student is asked to match a sound to a photograph (“Find the one that makes this sound… meow.”). The program continually tracks a student’s performance and uses this information to guide the learning process.

Flexibility and control
You decide whether to train using two or three choices, whether to have visual reinforcement on or off, and whether to include text. At the end of each session, a performance summary is presented, allowing you to quickly review progress and ensure accountability.


Activities

Nouns & Sounds Includes 9 Instructional Activities!

Optimized Intervention
This activity automatically assesses a student’s knowledge of common nouns and their sounds and then delivers highly individualized training. Based on a student’s responses, the program moves among three training levels, each with a different amount of instructional support.

Training by Level
Students are asked to match sounds with photographs. You can choose any one of the three training levels to accommodate individuals who need a fixed level of support.

Testing
This activity can be used to document pre- or post-training performance.

Three Additional Instructional Activities
Is this the Right Sound? asks students to decide whether a sound matches or does not match a picture.

Identifying Noun Sounds asks students to listen to a sound and identify the correct picture from 6, 8, or 12 choices.

Remember that Sound presents a sound and, after a short delay, asks the student to identify the correct picture from two or three choices.

Three Supplemental Activities
Introducing Nouns and Sounds is a single switch activity that presents one noun and its sound at a time.

Exploring Noun Sounds lets users explore different sounds from an array of 6, 8, or 12 picture choices.

Concentrate on Noun Sounds asks students to find two identical pictures from an array of 6, 8 or 12 cards that appear face down.
