The See and Learn Playing with Sounds kit is designed for parents, teachers, and therapists to help babies, preschoolers, and children with Down Syndrome begin to speak correctly, and help them listen to learn speech sounds. See and Learn Playing with Sounds supports activities that encourage attention, listening, discrimination, and production of the sounds that make up speech. See and Learn Playing with Sounds introduces 41 speech sounds (phonemes) in the English language with clear picture card prompts. Later steps in See and Learn Speech build on these skills to combine individual sounds in simple vowel consonant combinations and then whole words. Printable record sheets for recording progress.
It is customized with a variety of options to configure voices and random cards sequence with applause at the end of activities with prerecorded voice prompts, offering repeated playback of spoken sounds, and simple activity screens, keeping distractions to a minimum to help children focus on the tasks at hand. See and Learn Playing with Sounds includes four activities:
- Listening to Single Sounds which helps children become familiar with the sounds in their language and to store these sounds in their memory system. It also teaches children to associate each sound with a picture prompt.
- Listening to Different Sounds is an activity that is designed to help children hear and notice the differences between sounds (discrimination).
- Selecting Different Sounds is an activity that tests discrimination skills by asking them to identify a spoken sound by choosing the sound card representing the sound.
- Saying Sounds is an activity to play as children learns the sounds in speech and learns to discriminate between them they are developing some of the skills necessary to begin to produce sounds spontaneously - this activity helps them to practice producing speech sounds.
