Auditory Integration Training (Overview)

Auditory integration training (AIT) in children with autism spectrum disorders is based upon the idea that repeated exposure to altered sound via headphones changes central auditory processing, improving language and behavior. This technique is considered an alternative or investigational therapy, with some studies some benefit and others showing no benefit.

What are auditory nerves?

What are auditory nerves?

Auditory nerves: are the large cranial nerves that transmit sound information from the cochlea (inner ear) to the brain (specifically the inferior colliculus of the midbrain and the medial geniculate body in the epithalamus). from there sound information is processed and passed to the brain stem reticular formation, superior medial temporal lobe and other processing centers. ...Read more

Can auditory nerves heal ?

Can auditory nerves heal ?

Need specificity: If you have had a diagnosis of hearing loss due to neural degeneration (nerve deafness), then the answer is no. Once the inner ear or nerve of hearing is damaged, it does not return to normal. At age 41 it is unlikely that you have an aging problem. We need more information. For example, did you develop sudden deafness, it is on one side, are you having trouble understanding speech? ...Read more

What and where is the auditory nerve?

In your head: The auditory nerve is that which transports information from the cochlea (your hearing organ) up into the brain and may also bring some information back. It begins within the temporal bone, which houses the ear, and continues up the brainstem and into the hearing centers in the brain. ...Read more

How to fix my auditory processing disorder?

How to fix my auditory processing disorder?

The Fix: Has difficulty following directions Problems listening when there is background noise Confuses similar sounding words (such as 'comb' for 'cone') Has reading and/or spelling difficulties Gemm Learning can help these auditory processing difficulties, sometimes called auditory processing disorder or APD. Processing skills can be dramatically improved with exercise. auditory processing difficultie Target The Underlying Problem Tutoring is like pumping air into a tire with a leak. It's a temporary fix at best. To help your child overcome auditory processing difficulties -- to be a better reader and learner -- you need to treat the APD. Based on Principles of Neuroplasticity The brain is like a muscle -- it responds to exercise. Our Fast ForWord program takes advantage of brain plasticity to help students of all ages. Proven Software Fast ForWord is the leading software for helping APD in North America. It is backed by 240 studies, and has helped over 1 million students. ...Read more

In other words the person hears the sound but does not appropriately process the sound to act on it appropriately. They have difficulty developing as quickly as their peers and italy take longer for them to grasp concepts that others learn quickly. I hope it helpe. ...Read more

I was wondering is auditory processing disorder common?

I was wondering is auditory processing disorder common?

Don't know but: I know real people definitely have it. It is distinct from actual auditory acuity or how well you can hear. Not usually worrisome, and might be from birth / genetic. Better resources might be to start with national ENT website, or PubMed for a review article. ...Read more

What are the two approaches to treating (apd)auditory processing disorder?

What are the two approaches to treating (apd)auditory processing disorder?

Approaches APD: APD refers to how the central nervous system (CNS) uses auditory information. The CNS is vast and also is responsible for functions such as memory, attention, and language, among others. Treatment of APD generally focuses on three primary areas: changing the learning or communication environment, recruiting higher-order skills to help compensate for the disorder, and remediation of the memory. ...Read more
