My daughter has some difficulties in reading, writing, and her fine motor skills. In third grade, her teacher had what she called a "whisper phone" for every student and they were permitted to use them on all their exams and anytime they needed to do silent reading. They were not a brand-name product... Her husband had constructed them himself many years ago. Her teacher made sure to have the school put in her 504 that she could use a "whisper phone" on all of her school assessments, b/c my daughter actively uses it and does better on her exams when she does, simply b/c she can hear herself read. The "phone" echoes her words to her, yet keeps the echo contained in the "phone" so that others in the room, even right next to her cannot hear her words. My daughter now recognizes that she is an "auditory learner" for her preferred learning style. Now that she is in the older Intermediate school, we had to remind the teachers to allow her to use this on her assessments (and prompt her to use it if she forgot). Her Language Arts/ SS teacher had a whisper phone, but my daughter complained to me that it was "too big" for her. (My daughter is very petite for her age.) She also said her math/ science teacher did not have one for her to use. So I purchased two (one of each different brands listed on this site), one to keep at home and one for her to keep at school. She chose this one b/c of its pretty color I'm sure. She chose the 2nd one b/c it was the same as the one her current LA/SS teacher has, but in a smaller version. I think she likes the other brand better, but I believe this brand and the other really work the same... I think she just likes the other one slightly better only b/c the teacher has the same brand. Personally, if it were me, I'd like this brand better. I personally think it looks "prettier" and I think it's easier to hold than the other brand. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is b/c my daughter says she likes the other brand a tiny bit better.
Learning Loft is a family owned and operated company, founded in 2002 by Linda, teacher, mother and grandmother. Linda had tried other “reading phones” with her own students but they soon became frustrated with the heavy, bulky phones. Seeing an opportunity to help her students, she set out to build our first product, the Toobaloo.
Since then, Learning Loft has expanded their educational product line to include the Toobaloo, Eye Lighter, Check-A-Roo, Write-A-Roo and Desk-A-Roo. Each tool aids students in increasing educational development.
Our main focus at Learning Loft is to continually work and create innovative, educational tools for reading, speech, ESL, special education and organization. Try our products today and watch the children in your life excel and grow!
