Our reviewer uses this app individually with students who are struggling with auditory comprehension and following directions. The students love the visuals and the melodic voice of the reader. As students progress the teacher increases the choices from 2 to 4. They have found Listening Power Preschool to be an asset tracking and presenting data. The stories are simple, but users need to pay attention to the details especially when they listen to stories without pictures.
