The Auditory Processing Speech Therapy service offered by Dr. Kasey Cannon is designed to help you with processing information that you hear and make sense of it. The goal of this therapy is to improve your academic performance, language skills, and social skills.
The first step in the therapy is to determine if there is a problem with your auditory system. If there is, then we will work together to fix it. To do this, I will ask you some questions about what your symptoms are and how long they have been present. We may use a computer program to test for hearing loss or other problems with the middle ear. We will also look at any other medical conditions you may have that could cause problems with your hearing.
We will also talk about what types of sounds bother you most when listening to music or watching television. This can help us determine which type of sound therapy would benefit you best. For example, if certain high frequencies make it difficult to concentrate on work tasks, then we might use digital hearing aids which have different settings for different frequencies.
Auditory Processing Speech Therapy is a cognitive speech therapy program designed to help listeners improve their focus and attention span. Listeners work on listening skills through training exercises that train the brain to pay attention to important sounds, and ignore unimportant ones.
Auditory Processing Speech Therapy is an important part of communication. We understand how hard it is to communicate with others if you have difficulty hearing or understanding what others are saying. It is a very frustrating feeling and can cause anxiety in our daily lives.
Children with auditory processing difficulties have difficulty understanding speech in noisy environments, following directions with more than one step, distinguishing between similar sounding words, and paying attention.
Auditory Processing Speech Therapy helps children and adults with hearing and listening problems. The child may have difficulty processing words that are spoken quickly, or in a noisy environment. This can cause a child to appear inattentive, because he/she is missing key information in class. An auditory processing disorder can also cause difficulty with phonics skills, reading comprehension, and memory. Auditory processing difficulties often co-exist with language disorders, attention disorders, and learning disabilities.
Auditory Processing Speech Therapy (APST), also known as Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) or Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD), is a type of speech-language therapy that focuses on helping children between the ages of six and twelve who have trouble hearing, understanding, and processing spoken language.
Auditory processing refers to the brain’s ability to interpret what we hear. There is a difference between hearing and listening. Hearing requires only that sound waves reach the inner ear, while listening requires that the brain can process and understand what it is hearing. Auditory processing disorder (APD) is a condition that affects the way the brain processes auditory information. People with APD may have problems understanding speech, especially if there is competing background noise or more than one speaker talking at once.
Auditory Processing Speech Therapy can help children with APD improve their ability to listen and attend to important sounds in their environment. This allows them to be more successful in school, particularly with regard to reading, spelling, memory for instructions, and note-taking.
Auditory processing is the ability to make sense of the sounds you hear. It allows your brain to take information from your ears and make sense of it so that you can understand what you hear. Children with auditory processing problems have trouble hearing the difference between certain sounds that are similar, such as /m/ and /n/, /f/ and /p/, or /d/ and /t/. Even though children with auditory processing problems can hear sounds normally, they may have difficulty understanding them. They may be able to hear a word but not know what it means.
Auditory processing refers to the ability of the brain to take in information through hearing and make sense of it. It is not the same as being able to hear, although those with hearing loss may have difficulty with auditory processing.
Auditory processing problems often manifest in school-age kids. However, it can affect people of any age and can impact everything from learning to work performance.
An example of auditory processing disorder might be a child hearing a teacher say “We are going outside today” followed by “I hope it doesn’t rain,” which the child interprets as “I hope we don’t go outside today.” In this example, the child is unable to separate or filter out the important information (that they’re going outside) from the less relevant information (the teacher’s comment about rain).
