Spotlight on Listening Comprehension – Making Inferences

Spotlight on Listening Comprehension – Making Inferences $15 + S/H  Children with hearing loss are typically challenged to ‘catch’ all of the words spoken in the classroom. Due to gaps in language, they are also often challenged with fully understanding what they hear. Ultimately, the more effort devoted to listening, the fewer the cognitive resources available for comprehension. So what can we do? (1) optimize hearing, especially in typically distant and noisy classroom conditions, (2) make the teacher aware of the extra effort needed to listen and the necessity of repetition and listening breaks, (3) strengthen comprehension skills. Supporting Success offers the Listening Comprehension Test 2 and the Listening Comprehension Test Adolescent. I feel that these really are necessary assessments as they help to determine the degree to which the student is experiencing access barriers to comprehending classroom communication. I was excited to find the Spotlight on Listening Comprehension workbooks as they mirror the areas evaluated by the Listening Comprehension Tests. If you find that a student is especially low in one or more areas, these workbooks make it easy to target skill building and practice in the specific areas needed. Even if you do not have the full Listening Comprehension Tests that allow comparison to age norms, each of these workbooks offer a brief pretest/post-test. Karen Anderson, Director Ages: 6-12 Grades: 1-7 The cornerstone of comprehension, making inferences, becomes tangible for students with language issues. Students examine what they hear for a variety of clues and make meaningful connections to what they know.
