Auditory discrimination is your child’s ability to discriminate one sound from another…to discriminate similar sounds….her ability to indicate the similarities and differences in sounds…to auditorily discriminate. For some little ones this is a challenging task….and if your little one is having difficulty in discriminating sounds…she may present with challenges when she is trying to discriminate the sounds in English. So I am proud to say that within the next few months the app above will be available on Apple’s iTunes Store. It is a very simple game….a game fun for children…so that they can learn while they play. While looking at a board with six different pictures on it…your little one will press a button to hear a sound…and then try to match the sound to the correct picture. Some of the sounds are similiar…so she really has to discriminate in order to determine which sound she hears. There is so much language that can be then incorporated with the activity…and I will be sure to post about it as we get closer to the final production.
I was excited to use the Beta version with the little ones I see for therapy…and I was able to see in action how positive, fun, motivating and exciting the app is…and how much language I was able to elicit…and the back and forth conversation that was initiated between us…..and the many questions they were asking! So stay tuned for Play to Learn!…with more apps to follow.
