At long last, we can do more than just suggest strategies - we can now treat the underlying issue involved in many learning disorders and social skills deficits by correcting the underlying problem with auditory processing.
Auditory Training and Autism Spectrum Disorder
What is Auditory Processing? It has been defined as “what we do with what we hear” or the “ability to receive, sequence and process sound”.
Disorders in Auditory Processing can mean problems for listening, developing language skills (both expressive and receptive), impairments in cognitive and learning abilities and behavioural difficulties. Studies between 1994 and 2013 found Auditory Processing Disorders to coexist with the condition of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in 9-53% of children diagnosed with the condition of ASD.
What is Auditory Training and how can it help?
Auditory Training uses a combination of electronically modified words and phrases, audio vocal activities and music that is dynamically modified to stimulate the auditory system and its pathways.
How does it help?
Auditory training assists in developing receptive language and listening skills. It also assists in increasing the awareness of expressive language skills and voice control. This has positive implications for better educational outcomes for children. Auditory training has also been found to stimulate the auditory nerves and contribute to improved social engagement.
