Simplify the multiple aspects of remediating central auditory processing disorders with this expansive hierarchy of ready-to-use exercises.
This three-book program targets central auditory processing disorders with a bottom-up approach. Discrete skills are developed at levels of increasing complexity. The lesson formats vary according to the targeted skill. Most of the lessons are ready-to-use. Copy the student activity pages or print them from the CD.
Visual-auditory memory—visualize and pay attention to details; includes full-color cards for use in barrier activities
Auditory-sequential memory—immediate vs. delayed recall, following directions, matching rhythms
Auditory discrimination—discriminate sounds in words and sentences, voiced/voiceless sounds in words, and the position of sounds in words
Auditory closure exercises in four areas—identify missing words, missing syllables, and missing phonemes; use context to derive word meaning
Auditory synthesis exercises—identify the number of syllables and initial sounds in words, combine sounds segments into words, build speech-to-print associations
Auditory figure-ground exercises—follow directions, complete seatwork, maintain conversations, and follow lectures in varying levels of noise
Auditory cohesion exercises—identify key words in messages
Auditory binaural integration exercises—sing familiar songs, draw to directions, and work with opposites
