May 2020 INcouragement Night is Online!

Auditory Function – Listening for Yourself

The first and last steps in developing auditory skills are integrating listening into thinking and managing interaction with the world. While we start with therapy to discriminate and identify sounds, we want to end with an auditory concept of the world that goes beyond using words to communicate. It can be an “auditory function” that finds in sound not only communication, but information, excitement, comfort, and fun.
