The Auditory Reasoning app was created by a certified speech and language pathologist for students, ages 6 and up with central auditory processing disorder (CAPD) or other related disorders (e.g., receptive language disorder or autism), to improve auditory processing requiring reasoning and high-level thinking. All the tasks are presented orally so the students can work solely on their auditory skills and processing.
The app’s theme is fun, colorful and cosmic. A reward system in the form of a game will motivate students to practice their auditory skills in the following activities:
All of these tasks can be practiced in the presence of background noise that can be set up in the app’s settings.
Research is still needed in the area of central auditory processing disorder; however, most individuals will benefit from procedures that target the acoustic signal and from procedures that target language. Comprehensive evaluation and a multidisciplinary approach are important aspects of the treatment of individuals with central auditory processing disorder (ASHA 2005).
Other apps developed by Virtual Speech Center for central auditory processing disorder include Auditory Workout, Auditory Processing Studio, Auditory Memory Ride and School of Multi-Step Directions.
