Learning Reading Help:
Auditory Memory Part 3
In the last post Learning Reading Help: Auditory Memory Part 2 I talked about learning reading and went over some specific activities you can do in just minutes a day to target areas of auditory processing that affect learning reading. Remember, when you need learning reading help you want to be sure you are considering all of the areas that may be problematic to learning reading. Whether you have dyslexia, an identified learning disability, are falling through the cracks, or are gifted, these areas of visual and auditory perception are the reason why you need reading help.
Learning Reading Help: Auditory Processing Areas
There are multiple areas of auditory processing that affect learning reading. Auditory memory is just one of the areas. I’m sure most of you are aware of auditory discrimination, the ability to tell one sound from another. Problems with auditory discrimination can lead to difficulties acquiring, understanding, and using spoken language as well as poor spelling.
There are other areas such as auditory closure. When you have auditory closure problems, you have difficulty with sounding out words, with attending to auditory stimuli, and filling in the gaps when you have missed parts of words or pars of conversations. These problems can also lead to incorrect English usage and spelling.
Learning Reading Help: Materials to Use to Improve Auditory Processing, Spelling, and Reading
In the following video I show you some materials that you can use with your children to improve not only auditory memory but 5 other areas of auditory processing and at the same time learn decoding and encoding skills that are critical to learning reading as well as learning to spell.
