Auditory training is a therapeutic approach designed to improve an individual's auditory processing abilities.
While it can take many forms, it involves a set of exercises and/or activities aimed at enhancing various aspects of hearing and listening skills. This type of training is commonly used in individuals with auditory processing disorders, concussions/TBI/brain fog, hearing impairments, or difficulties in understanding speech in noisy environments.
The evidence-based listening exercises we utilize can improve a person’s ability to:
- Quickly and accurately discriminate the individual sounds of speech
- Increase the ability to digest speech while at the same time suppress competing noise
- Better remember spoken information
For school-aged children, auditory training can improve auditory processing skills, which can in turn improve reading and spelling abilities.
In many instances, we are able to perform auditory training sessions with people through video chat (telehealth) or in our offices.
