HearBuilder Wins The US National Parenting Center Seal Of Approval

Greenville, South Carolina, USA (MMD Newswire) - Webber HearBuilder Following Directions and Phonological Awareness educational software programs, published by Super Duper Publications, have been awarded The National Parenting Center's 2010 Seal of Approval. The National Parenting Center is one of the industry's most trusted sources of expert parenting advice and product evaluation.

"All of us at Super Duper are honored to have our HearBuilder Learning Software programs receive The National Parenting Center's Seal of Approval," says Thomas Webber, Chairman and CEO of Super Duper Publications. "We greatly respect the Center's work in recognizing and supporting the best educational products for children's development."

Independent testers including parents, educators, and specialists at The National Parenting Center evaluated the HearBuilder Following Directions (with Basic Concepts) and HearBuilder Phonological Awareness (Sound Awareness for Reading) programs. In assessing HearBuilder, the testers looked at each product's "level of desirability, sturdiness, interactive stimulation and other ingredients essential in the make-up of a quality product."

According to a recent independent study by the NPC, nearly 60% of mothers are more likely to purchase a product if it has the NPC Seal of Approval.

HearBuilder Following Directions is an innovative, evidence-based, interactive software program that gives children a systematic way to improve their listening and following directions skills while learning 40 basic concepts. As children proceed through the levels of the program, they become Master Toy Makers and build their own Toy Central factories.

HearBuilder Phonological Awareness helps students improve their sound awareness for reading and listening skills. Students earn musical instruments and band members as they form a rock band called The Phonemix. Children learn to segment, blend, and manipulate sounds, which are essential skills for good readers.

Super Duper Publications has been making creative, colorful therapy and educational materials for all children, and particularly those with autism and other special needs, since 1986.
