Learnigo Product Feature: Auditory Perception program

Learnigo's Auditory Perception Program

Auditory perception is the ability to perceive, identify, and differentiate acoustic information. This ability begins during pregnancy, with evidence showing that a fetus can respond to pure tone auditory stimuli from 19 weeks of gestational age (Hepper et al.,1994). In typical development, hearing ability develops along with the other senses, such as vision and touch.

The Learnigo EDU & SLP: Auditory Perception program was created to stimulate and improve  the development of auditory perception, analysis and auditory synthesis, auditory attention and concentration, and auditory memory.The interactive exercises are most appropriate for younger learners (approximately 4-10 years old) who are learning to read and write. This is because auditory perception disorders usually present themselves during the reading and writing process, as earlier they may have gone unnoticed by parents and teachers.

Impact of auditory perception difficulties

Auditory perception difficulties associated with hearing loss can have an impact on speech and language development, academic achievement, social skills, and mental health–not only on the individual, but for their loved ones as well. Additionally, the age of hearing loss onset has a great impact on speech and language development (National Research Council). Early intervention via hearing screenings, evaluation, and treatment can have a positive influence on the areas that may be impacted by hearing loss.

How can I support students with auditory perception difficulties?

These tips target different aspects of auditory perception and processing, helping students develop a range of auditory skills essential for effective communication, learning, and cognitive function.

 💡 Recognizing and differentiating between sounds: helps students develop the ability to distinguish between different sounds, which is essential for understanding speech, identifying environmental noises, and recognizing patterns in auditory stimuli.

 💡 Sequences and rhythms: helps students perceive the order and timing of auditory stimuli, which is important for processing speech, music, and other auditory information presented in a sequential or rhythmic manner.

  💡Phonemic hearing: Developing phonemic awareness improves auditory discrimination skills and lays the foundation for reading and language comprehension.

 💡Auditory analysis and synthesis: Analyzing and synthesizing auditory information involves breaking down complex sounds into their component parts and combining individual sounds to form meaningful patterns or words. This skill is crucial for understanding speech, decoding language, and processing complex auditory stimuli

 💡Auditory memory:  Auditory memory refers to the ability to retain and recall auditory information over short or long periods. Enhancing auditory memory helps individuals retain spoken instructions, remember auditory cues, and follow conversations more effectively.

 💡Rhymes and puzzles: Engaging in activities like rhymes and puzzles challenges auditory perception by requiring individuals to recognize patterns, anticipate outcomes, and make connections between auditory stimuli. These activities strengthen auditory processing skills and promote cognitive flexibility.

💡 Listening games: Listening games provide opportunities for practicing active listening, auditory discrimination, and auditory attention in a fun and engaging way. By participating in listening games, individuals can improve their ability to focus on auditory stimuli, identify key information, and respond appropriately.

The Learnigo Auditory Perception Program

The Learnigo Auditory Perception program can be adjusted to fit individual needs. Depending on the level of development of auditory functions and the child’s age, it can serve different purposes: prevention of problems in the development of auditory perception, stimulation, therapy, and improvement of auditory perception functions.

The material in the Learnigo EDU & SLP: Auditory Perception program is arranged according to level of difficulty. The most important aspect of the program is to individualize the work. The exercises should always be adapted to the child’s developmental abilities, and the duration of each activity should be adjusted as needed, slowly and systematically moving from easier to more difficult and complex tasks.

 The program includes the following activities divided across 600 interactive screens and worksheets:

🔊 Recognizing and differentiating between sounds

🔊 Listening to sounds in the immediate surroundings

🔊 Rhythmic structure

🔊 Time

🔊 Phonemic hearing

🔊 Vowel phonemes

🔊 Operation on sounds

🔊 Operation on syllables

🔊 Operation on words

🔊 Auditory memory

🔊 Complex Instructions

The program was designed to be easily accessible, which is ideal for teachers/therapists working in any setting (school, private practice, home, etc.). It can open on any browser with internet access. This is especially helpful for the on-the-go teacher or therapist by streamlining, as the programs access to thousands of materials no matter where you are.

Below are some examples of activities from the Learnigo Visual Perception program:
