What is effective and efficient Auditory Processing
"Strong and effective auditory functions facilitate skills to Hear, Express, Learn, and Process.
Robust and efficient auditory skills are necessary to Listen, Organize, Think, Understand, and Speak with good Stamina." Dr. Kaul
At Hear Express Learn Process, our goal is to facilitate active participation in the learning process in order to comprehend, retain, and express. This process includes strong executive skills for self-monitoring, self-correction, and self-regulation. Short-term memory and working memory skills are also integral to this learning process.
Developing robust auditory skills is a basic necessity to achieve the goal of active participation.
Auditory skills include:
Sensitivity-to be aware of the incoming auditory signals
Auditory filtering-to choose appropriate incoming signals and to ignore the unnecessary information
Attention- to focus on the information over time
Dichotic listenting: ability to listen from both ears at the same time
Selective listening: ability to listen to one ear and ignore the other other ear appropriately
Analysis- of the information by decoding and discrimination
Synthesis- blending information meaningfully
Comprehension-Attach meaning (auditory association)
Organization and Integration- of all the incoming information
Comparison- of incoming information with previously stored knowledge
Expression-Provide an appropriate output/ response
Appropriate feedback mechanisms for self-monitoring and self-regulation skills, develop with practice, experience, and maturity.
Finally Auditory Processing also involves increased endurance with time to sustained auditory input with maturity
