September 20, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Education NewsWhisperPhone, an educational tool for learners of all ages, has made local and national headlines as an effective reading resource in classroom and home settings. Wearing a WhisperPhone helps students focus as they learn to read by sounding out words and reading aloud.
ABC affiliate KSTP-TV featured WhisperPhone as a tool to tune out distractions so that students can self-monitor and correct mistakes in their reading.
“Teachers love it, many saying it really helps special education students and those learning English for the first time,” Jessica Miles reported.
“Using our product helps learners hear the sounds that make up words (phonemes) much better. Knowing that our product has been shown to increase literacy and better reading test results is very rewarding; this is why we do our job,” said Steve Swain of Harebrain, Inc.
Other recent WhisperPhone news includes a partnership with Weekly Reader Publishing Group, a Best Product award and inclusion in a book titled Auditory Processing Disorders as an effective form of therapy.
