As increasing numbers of children who are hard of hearing enter school with minimized language delays there is a greater need to work on language and auditory integration to improve how a student is able to process auditory information.
Help for Auditory Processing
Appropriate for ages: 6-Adult
Students receive, interpret, and internalize language presented in the auditory mode with hundreds of stimulus items arranged by discrete skill and level of difficulty.
Outcomes: Effectively interpret auditory information and improve auditory skills for language and learning.
These lessons have:
- goal-driven activities
- high quality, timeless content
- appeal to a broad age-range
- gradual increase in complexity within and between activities
- application to a wide range of developmental and acquired disorders
The activities in this book develop functional auditory-linguistic skills that support language and reasoning. Stimuli require active thinking as well as processing. All of the tasks can be presented orally to the client or used as worksheets.
The book is divided into eight sections:
Word Classes: recognize and relate items by word class; identify word classes; build word associations; understand word classes for problem solving
Directions: identify important information in directions, information missing from directions, and the number of steps in directions; paraphrase directions; follow conditional directions
Details: identify specific information in directions; explain absurdities; correct factual errors; identify opposites, synonyms, pronoun referents, and details in statements
Information: determine what information is needed and sources of information; judge the quality of information; use information to make inferences and decisions; identify relevant information
Questions: answer questions about objects, word classes, and activities; choose appropriate questions; use questions to gather information
Sequencing: put information in order; sequence by physical features and historical events, identify steps in common events, sequence life events; understand sequences in paragraphs
