WhisperPhone SOLO: EDUCATIONAL TOOL, WHISPERPHONE, ACCELERATES LEARNING
WhisperPhone® is a hands-free, acoustical headset that helps children and adults focus on and hear the individual sounds of words more clearly as they learn by processing language aloud. This hands-free, acoustical voice-feedback headset helps students hear phonemes, the sounds that compose words. Phonemic awareness is a key predictor of literacy success, according to the National Reading Panel.

WhisperPhones are proven to help students with reading, writing, spelling, learning a new language and memorizing lines for the theater. This tool is great for all activities that require increased comprehension and concentration.

WhisperPhone DUET: Kids learn to read by reading aloud. There’s a reason: auditory learning is powerful. WhisperPhone® Duet increases literacy results.
Teachers have been using auditory learning for decades—Duet intensifies this approach. Duet is an acoustical tool that enables students to work in teams and focus on individual sounds of words as they process language aloud. Teachers work one-on-one with students and easily check the nuances of the student’s progress. Because Duet is direct-to-ear product, it helps keep classrooms quieter.

• Ideal for paired work
• Easy to integrate into exercises
• Title I and Reading First funds qualified
• Covered by a lifetime guarantee

Reviews

“This is a wonderful learning tool! I went into the store searching for something to help my son hear sounds better to assist him in being a successful reader. The WhisperPhone works great. He is in a reading class with 3 other children so I purchased additional WhisperPhones for the school to use. All the children having a WhisperPhone will make all of them more successful!”

- Lisa - Parent North Carolina

“I use the Whisperphone with great success in my Discovery Multiplication™ workshops, during the skip-counting activities. My students find that it helps them stay focused and makes it easier to memorize their math facts. What a great tool for fact retention! It’s simple, yet very effective.”

- Susan Jarema, Googol Learning
