    Yes. There is a single student home version, which means you can work on Units of Sound at home or anywhere with an internet connection.
    Units of Sound starts with three letter (cvc) words and is a second chance literacy tool. If you do use it with a seven year old, you need to be sure they are ready for it and are not still on the Active Literacy Kit level.
