During Sound Therapy, many children spontaneously comment on their improved auditory perception: “I can hear more clearly”, or “I now hear more sounds when I listen to a piece of music I already know”.
Sometimes this clarity is expressed at a cognitive level: “I think more clearly”, “my mind is not as foggy” or, as one father commented about his child, “his head has come out of the clouds”.
Improved clarity in perception enhances, in turn, the clarity and intelligibility of speech.
For example, the children’s explanations and descriptions become increasingly precise and pertinent. Furthermore, a greater degree of phonological awareness is observed and, when reading out loud, the child becomes better able to self-correct phonetic errors.
Better auditory processing is one of the indicators of improved listening skill.
