First Words and Verbs is a research-based software program that provides highly structured teaching of nouns and verbs in developmental order. Using Laureate’s Optimized Intervention® technology, the programs begin by identifying five words the student doesn’t know. The student then chooses between two pictures to identify the first word. As responses are monitored for each word, the teaching is automatically adjusted to one of five levels. Engaging animated characters reinforce correct answers and introduce expanded language. At the end of each lesson, a summary of the student’s performance can be reviewed. Grades pre-K and up.
Software requirements: Windows XP or higher, Mac OSX 10.6 or higher, CD drive required for installation.
