Reading Phones

Reading phones are the perfect reading companion for children with ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, Auditory Processing Disorder, Apraxia Speech, Selective Mutism, and the non-verbal or limited verbal child.

Reading Phones:

  • provide multiple visual, auditory, motor inputs and blocks distractions by improving the signal-to-noise ratio.
  • help  the user to repeat the desired pronunciation in the same way in the future more easily.
  • amplify a child’s own sound production and increases auditory feedback of the sounds, thus reinforcing sound production. 
  • help by reducing background noise and highlighting the difference between hard-to-hear contrasts between similar sounds.
