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 programme separately according to ability; this means you are working at the right level with built in checking systems to monitor progress.
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.
The programme is highly personalised 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 assessment 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 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.
What People Are Saying...
It gave me more confidence to apply for jobs. I don’t know if I would have done this without Units of Sound.
Every student has been fully engaged in the programme – they like the personalisation and the variety of tasks – also the interactive nature.
When I’m using Units of Sound, I can go at my own pace.
Units of Sound covers a lot of ground in a short session and is very structured.
It’s an organised computer program that helped me kick start my spelling, and helped me with my reading.
