Supporting auditory processing difficulties in young children can help to promote accelerated learning, memory, social developmental skills and language.
Just one ear infection is enough to cause future auditory processing difficulties, which can impact a child’s ability to listen, learn and communicate. In order to become successful learners, they need to maintain concentrated attention over prolonged periods of time. This is referred to as vigilance. Performing attention-related tasks in real life involves the need to ignore a variety of distractions and inhibit attention shifts to irrelevant activities.
Here are some fun ideas for activities that parents can do with their young children, to help develop good auditory processing, attention skills and to become more aware of their environment. Not to mention these are fun social interactions that will surely be enjoyed by all:
