Importance of Auditory Processing
Increasing auditory processing (short term memory) enhances ones’ ability to:
- stay on task
- follow directions
- comprehend what is read and said
- follow conversations
- think conceptually (understanding the big picture and cause and effect)
- use the phonics approach to reading
Unfortunately, with today's emphasis on only developing visual abilities; we are finding more and more people having difficulty in retaining information due to their lack of auditory short-term memory practice! Auditory processing also has a direct correlation to the symptoms on the ADD/ADHD checklist.
What you can't hold in short term memory; cannot be stored in long-term memory, so the conceptual words activity is a wonderful exercise for the whole family! With improved memory; learning becomes easier!
This small investment can turn your family’s ability in academics into smiles and enables greater confidence and overall success!
