Features

    Units of Sound is full of helpful features to encourage learning.

    PURCHASE

    Online

    Units of Sound is online so you don’t have to load a program on to your computer or network. Online access gives you maximum flexibility to work in school or college, at home, in a library, anywhere with internet access.

    Separate placement for reading and spelling

    The student is placed on the reading and spelling program separately according to need; this means you are working at exactly the right level with built in checking mechanisms to monitor progress.

    Practitioner’s course

    To give that indepth, comprehensive understanding of the range of features the program has to offer the Practitioner’s Course is a fantastic bonus for any tutor. It helps you get the most out of the program and resources.

    Personalized learning

    The program is highly personalized meaning no two students will be working at the same level or pace; so from 3 letter words to adult reading Units of Sound fits a range of needs.

    Voice recording and playback

    To aid pronunciation, self checking and focus, the student records their own voice reading and listens back. A simple but effective aspect of the program. Great for students whose first language is not English.

    Revisiting

    Revisiting is the model of how we learn: a little bit at a time. Revisiting words and sounds again and again, over many lessons, but with a little something different each time, is the essential learning model for Units of Sound.

    Screen Tutor

    Short videos are built into the program to help students if they get stuck; from the Welcome Screen through to Dictation, each screen tutor explains what to do, and how to do it.

    Your Library

    At your finger tips is a comprehensive library containing everything you will need, from good practice checklists, to pick up and go resources, and certificates that help reward achievement.

    Help!

    A designated Helpsite built into the program designed to provide easy access to everything you need to know about Units of Sound. It includes Help for tutors, technicians and parents.
