Press Release - Listening Power Preschool HD
Listening Power Preschool HD is brought to you by Hamaguchi Apps, creators of the popular Fun with Directions HD app!
This app provides nearly 1200 listening practice questions on an iPad. It was created by Patti Hamaguchi, a licensed speech-language pathologist,and founder of Hamaguchi Apps. Listening Power Preschool HD is perfect for children at a language age of 3 ½ through 6 or any child learning English. Does your child need practice listening or working on receptive language concepts? Listening Power Preschool was designed for children with weak language comprehension, AD/HD and autism, but ANY child can enjoy these fun activities to strengthen listening!
By turning on the “text on” feature, it can also be used for reading decoding/comprehension as well!
This app should ideally be played with an adult who can teach and cue the child when appropriate during the activities. As with all screen time, app play should be limited. We recommend short sessions of approximately five-ten minutes for most children at this level.
There are 5 activities in the app:
Listening for Descriptions: Adjectives such as colors, big/little, happy/sad, clean/dirty, hold/cold, stripes, spots, soft/hard, round, square and more!
Listening for Directions: Concepts such as on, in, out, on, out, up, down, behind, line up, sit down, stop, underline, cross out, underline, and more!
Listening for Grammar & Meaning: plurals, verb tenses, pronouns, preposition concepts, and negation!
Listening for Stories with Pictures: A story is read with accompanying pictures and sound effects, followed by questions about the story such as who, what, and where questions.
Listening for Stories without Pictures: This activity is essentially the same as above, except the child is not shown pictures during the story. The child must stay focused and imagine the story, then answer simple questions about the story. An animation after the story shows some aspect of the story.
Features include: Easy, Intermediate and Advanced levels within each activity. Auto Advance/Drop makes the questions easier or more challenging, depending on your child’s choices; Bubble game included for a fun break; data collection, pop-up reward animations, individual and group play for up to 75 users; text on/off feature available to work on reading decoding and comprehension, options for 2, 3 or 4 choices to be shown.
