In Lesson Mode, phonemes are listed on a selection screen and the computer generates appropriate stimuli based on chosen phonemes. Levels of progression are target sounds in vowel combinations, target sounds in the initial position of words, target sounds in the final position of words, target sounds in the medial position of words, and target sounds in phrases. In Free Play Mode, target productions are randomly selected by the computer and consist of sounds in all positions of words and phrases. Additional Information or purchasing information.

How it works

Lesson Mode: To begin, choose the target phonemes and then select the game you want to play from the game map. The computer will automatically select targets based on the current level of progression for each selected phoneme. A picture stimulus will be presented with the written format of the word included. If the target phoneme is pronounced incorrectly, a verbal prompt will be provided. If the response is incorrect again, the verbal prompt will be repeated. If the response is incorrect on the third attempt, the trial will be counted as incorrect. In Lesson Mode, only the targeted phoneme is assessed for acceptable production. When a child receives 90% accuracy on a phoneme at a particular level of progression three times in a row, the computer will automatically move to the next level of phoneme progression. If a child only receives 20% accuracy on a level twice in a row, the computer will automatically move the child back down to the previous progression level.

Free Play:
To begin, simply choose the game that you want to play from the game map. The computer will randomly select target words from the complete word bank. The stimulus will be provided in the same manner as it is in Lesson Mode. In Free Play mode, the entire word or phrase will be assessed for acceptable production.
