This app was created by a fellow SLP (so you know it's got to be fabulous!) for adults and children who exhibit Central Auditory Processing Disorder. Auditory Processing Studio is filled with auditory discrimination, auditory closure, and phonological awareness activities. Below is a screen shot of some of the activities available.
Some examples of activities are:
-same vs. different consonant minimal pairs
-save vs. different vowel minimal pairs
-identifying presence of a sound
-identifying nonsense words in sentences
-identifying and/or generating rhymes
-blending syllables/ phonemes
-syllable/phoneme addition and deletion
-generating missing words in sentences
-generating missing phonemes
....just to name a few!
To get started, you first enter your students' names. This allows for data collection. Then you choose from the list of activities, which activities you want to target for the individual student.
After you are all set up, the students are presented with auditory activities. The screen shot below is of an auditory discrimination task. The student listens to a word and decided if a target phoneme is present in the word. The student chooses Yes or No. If they choose correctly, they earn a drum.
After the student earns 5 drums.... the student is able to play the instruments! My oh my, this part is definitely a favorite of my younger students! The kiddos are free for a jam session!
Another bonus is that this app allows students to record their responses. This way you can incorporate articulation goals into these auditory tasks.
