Ease reading, speech, comprehension and pronunciation challenges with the Toobaloo. Created by a teacher, the Toobaloo is an educational tool designed to provide auditory feedback which helps children learn to read, increase fluency and comprehension and meet special needs such as autism, APD, stuttering and dyslexia.
By speaking into the Toobaloo, children hear themselves (auditory feedback) and can make adjustments to fluency, pronunciation and even increase comprehension. Children with special needs such as autism, auditory procession disorder, stuttering and dyslexia see remarkable benefits from the auditory feedback process of listening to themselves read aloud.

What Is Auditory Feedback?
Auditory Feedback is the task of hearing the sound of one's own voice while speaking, which enables adjustments in pronunciation, clarity and the rhythm of speech. Auditory Feedback is used in speech, language, auditory processing and reading therapy programs.
How Does the Auditory System Work?
The auditory system is comprised of three components; the outer, middle, and inner ear, all of which work together to transfer sounds from the environment to the brain.
The Outer Ear includes the portion of the ear that we see and the ear canal.
The Middle Ear is composed of the eardrum and the cavity, which houses the ossicular chain (the connection from the middle ear to the inner ear).
The Inner Ear is composed of the sensory organ for hearing—the cochlea.
In the human ear, a sound wave is transmitted through four separate mediums along the auditory system before a sound is perceived: in the outer ear—air, in the middle ear— mechanical, in the inner ear liquid and to the brain—neural.
Why is Auditory Feedback Important?
The Auditory Feedback Loop is basically the process of saying what you hear and hearing what you say. When there is something that breaks down in that loop several learning activities become compromised. Things like concentration, reading and speech are at risk for full development. In addition, the child with a compromised Auditory Feedback Loop can have low self-esteem and confidence as well as heightened anxiety.
The Toobaloo has been designed to provide crystal clear Auditory Feedback, helping to support and enhance the Auditory Feedback Loop. Even children without a breakdown in their system can benefit from enhanced Auditory Feedback. Hearing their own pronunciation, pace and fluctuation while speaking or reading allow children to adjust and correct what they hear and say.
By supporting the Auditory Feedback Loop the Toobaloo can increase reading and speech:

Unexpected bonus: our exuberant 3-year old likes to use it too. But with his own voice in his ear, he tones the volume down quite a bit. WINNING!
I agree with other reviewers that it comes apart easily, but I call that a good design idea. Given kids' propensity to stuff small toys into holes, I'm glad it comes apart. We can clear it of obstructions and wash any spittle out of it. A bit of decorative tape will keep it together more permanently if that's your aim.
