Earobics FOR PARENTS

Earobics systematically teaches the listening skills required for reading success.

More than 20 years of literacy research have conclusively proven that phonological awareness is the best predictor of success in reading. Research has also shown that this ability to identify and manipulate the sounds of language can actually be developed, through systematic instruction.

Award-winning software

Cognitive ConceptsTM award-winning Earobics is the first and only application of these research findings in a software product, systematically teaching the critical phonological awareness, auditory processing and introductory phonics skills required for learning to spell.

Used worldwide

Earobics is already widely used by teachers, reading specialists, speech-language pathologists and parents in schools, clinics, training centres in more than 25 countries. They consistently report Earobics to be effective in developing key early literacy skills, resulting in significant improvement in children’s ability to read, spell and stay focused.

Personalised training

Earobics features sophisticated adaptive technology, which automatically adjusts instruction to your child’s skill level and progress. The Home version of the software also includes Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced starting levels for each game and a Progress Chart for tracking skill improvements. While progress varies by child, most show significant skill improvement from using Earobics 15-20 minutes per day, three times a week.

Earobics Step 1

Earobics Step 1 is for developmental ages 4-7. It teaches your child how to:

  • Focus on spoken sounds over extended periods of time and with background noise
  • Determine whether two or more sounds are the same or different
  • Remember sounds and words in sequential order
  • Detect the silent intervals between sounds
  • Recognise a sequence of sounds
  • Blend sounds into syllables and syllables into words
  • Recognise rhyming sound patterns in words
  • Identify the position of a target sound in a word
  • Associate a sound with a letter or group of letters
  • Understand the meanings of words
  • Follow spoken directions

Earobics Step 2

Earobics Step 2 is for developmental ages 7-10. It teaches your child how to:

  • Follow increasingly complex directions with and without background noise
  • Remember sounds and words in sequential order
  • Sound out individual sounds in a word
  • Blend sounds into syllables and syllables into words
  • Identify the position of a target sound in a word
  • Add, delete, substitute and rearrange sounds to create new words
  • Recognise a word when a syllable or sound has been omitted
  • Associate a sound with a letter or group of letters
  • Understand the meanings of words
  • Recognise printed syllables and words

Earobics 1 for Adolescents and Adults

Earobics 1 for Adolescents and Adults features six interactive programs with over 300 levels of multimedia instruction, designed to appeal to older students who are struggling to read faster, spell better and improve their comprehension. The programs used sophisticated graphics to systematically teach critical phonological awareness, auditory processing and phonics skills.

Proven results

As a second grader, my daughter was struggling with reading. She’d gone through a Reading Recovery program in first grade, which had been some help, but she was still having difficulties. Then last summer she worked with Earobics at home, beginning with Step 1 and then moving onto Step 2. We’re so excited about the progress she’s made! This year she’s reading up to grade level and loves to rad chapter books. She used to skip over unfamiliar words, but now she figures them out. She understand what she’s reading now and we’ve noticed a big improvement in her spelling.
