Auditory Skills Trained

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

  • Phoneme discrimination:

    Learn to make phonetic distinctions in a meaningful word context. For example, distinguish the word “Mat” from the word “Bat.”

  • Recognizing frequently used words:

    Recognize words that are most likely to occur during everyday conversations. Example words are “boy” and “chair.”

  • Auditory attention:

    Learn to extract meaningful speech from a background of speech babble, as you would in a noisy restaurant or at a family dinner table.

  • Auditory processing speed:

    Learn to recognize speech quickly. Recognizing speech items quickly allows for less effort when listening to words in rapid succession, like during everyday conversation.

  • Bound morpheme identification:

    Learn to distinguish words that vary in bound morphemes, such as “boy” versus “boys” and “can” versus “can’t.” The presence or absence of a bound morpheme can greatly affect the meaning of a sentence.

  • Discourse comprehension:

    Practice understanding connected speech. We often hear connected speech during everyday conversation.

  • Auditory memory:

    Practice retaining speech information that you hear so you can recall it and apply it later. This is an important skill for maintaining conversation.
