General Overview

The auditory brain training games provide training in seven categories that are important for successful listening:

  • Phoneme discrimination
  • Most frequently used words in the language
  • Auditory attention
  • Auditory working memory
  • Bound morpheme discrimination
  • Discourse comprehension
  • The goal of training phoneme discrimination is to develop your ability to make phonetic distinctions (e.g., the word “mat” from the word “bat”).
  • The goal of training the most frequently occurring words in the language is to develop your abilities to recognize words that are likely to occur during everyday conversations (e.g., the words “car” and “chair”).
  • The goal of training auditory attention is to develop your ability to extract meaningful speech from a background of noise.
  • The goal of training auditory processing speed is to develop your ability to recognize speech quickly. This is important because during everyday conversation, one word follows another quickly.
  • The goal of training auditory working memory is to develop your ability to process the meaning of words.
  • The goal of bound morpheme training is to develop your ability to distinguish words that vary in word endings (e.g., “can” versus “can’t”).
  • The goal of training discourse comprehension is to develop your ability to comprehend sentences that might occur in conversation
