When auditory processing deficits become a piece of the puzzle, a “daily listening diet” can prove quite helpful. In fact, a daily listening diet is a critical element in remediating an auditory processing problem. Therapy administered once or twice a week is effective, but the poor listening habits that return once a child has left the therapeutic environment tend to impede auditory development. The key to successfully treating auditory processing weaknesses is to engage children with fun and motivating listening activities.
Retraining the brain to quickly and accurately perceive the sounds of speech is found to improve language, reading and academic performance in children with auditory decoding deficits. Auditory therapy designed to achieve these goals may include work on auditory discrimination, sound letter association, phonemic analysis and synthesis, auditory closure, auditory memory and auditory figure-ground discrimination.
