What is a Toobaloo whisper phone?

A whisper phone is a small, lightweight auditory feedback device. It allows a child to speak softly into it while listening to the clarity and rhythm of their words. This instant feedback encourages the child to make any necessary adjustments to their fluency or pronunciation as they speak.

Who can benefit?

While any child can benefit from instant auditory feedback, those who need extra help with reading, pronunciation, and even comprehension may experience the best results. A Toobaloo whisper phone is uniquely designed for those struggling with:

  • Stuttering
  • Dyslexia
  • Auditory Processing Disorder (APD)
  • Autism
  • Other special needs

Where is it used?

How does it help?

  • Improvement in reading rates, phrasing, and expression
