  6. Interactive Audio Technology to build Phonological Awareness and Early Childhood Literacy

    SBC: HOOGALIT, INC.            Topic: 91990020R0006

    Phonological awareness, the ability to identify and manipulate sounds in words, is the strongest determinant of future reading ability. The developers have created an interactive phonological audio tool for preschool-aged children to listen to passages and learn and practice the basic sounds that make up words. In this project, they will improve this tool by developing a new prototype software app ...
