Our Auditory Program for children and teens uses exercises, activities, and processes that effectively contribute to the brain's recognition of frequencies for proper development and maturation. Our program identify frequencies that may not be received appropriately by the brain and retrains the brain to not only recognize those signals, but also process those auditory signals. It trains the brain to process auditory input appropriately and receive all auditory frequencies.
With a thorough listening evaluation, specific listening and processing problems can be pinpointed and identified... and then specifically treated.
When looking at an individual's ability to process auditory information we take into account several factors.
• Neurodevelopment of the short term memory
• The auditory cortex
• The language centers
• Word recognition ability
• Learned listening personality traits
Auditory and Visual Processing
Our Auditory and Visual Processing Programs are designed to aid proper development of:
• Auditory cortex
• Visual cortex
• Auditory/Visual memory
• Neuro-pathways that provide connections from the auditory cortex and the visual cortex to all other
areas within the brain.
Our listening habits develop around our auditory abilities and the perceived effectiveness of this ability. For example, when we measure short term memory both auditorily and visually, we often find the individual tends to favors visual input over auditory input if there is a difference of even one increased digit span in the visual component. Under moments where there is "extreme" pressure, that individual will be able to capture the auditory information, but may not fully process or interpret the information. This individual may appear to not be listening or paying attention to the conversation, which in turn interferes with communication.
Our program is designed in which children and adolescents are placed on programs designed to break up neuro-inhibitors in feedback pathways. Once the neuro-inhibitors are reduced or eliminated, natural volitional, autonomic, and expressive responses can take place. Our approach to hearing and listening issues consists of first assessing the individual's developmental age (which often differs from physical age). Next we assess listening skills.
The program identifies the neuro-pathways that support the ability to comprehend what has been said and how the brain processes this information. We measure language comprehension activity as it occurs and how the individual discriminates and processes auditory vs. visual information.
Difficulty with auditory processing does not mean the ear is not hearing....rather it indicates difficulty with how this information is interpreted or processed by the brain. Auditory processing affects how we understand the spoken word and therefore affects how we view the world.
