Why is this important for Reading?

Auditory discrimination and working memory are vital skills for both reading and writing. The child needs to be able to hear the sounds, remember the sequence, and then blend them together to discover the word (i.e. c-a-t = cat READING), and listen to the word and then separate the individual sounds (i.e. monster = m-o-n-s-t-er WRITING). With good decoding skills the child is able to string the words together, and using his prior knowledge and intuition, develop reading comprehension skills.

Auditory Discrimination is the ability to hear, identify, compare, and contrast similarities and differences in individual sounds that create words. (i.e. seventeen and seventy) It starts with hearing and identifying sounds in our environment.

Auditory Figure-Ground Discrimination is the ability to pick out important sounds from a noisy background, and stay focused on the task at hand. This is especially important in a classroom environment. (i.e. following oral directions) and can be helpful in a family setting!

Auditory Memory skills include the ability to remember something that was heard a long time ago, or to recall recent information. It is referred to as long and short term memory. (e.g. people’s names, telephone numbers, address, recalling stories or songs, following multi-step directions.)

Auditory Sequencing is the ability to understand and recall the order of words or numbers. It is an important skill for language comprehension, as the order of the words is of critical importance. (e.g. confusing digits 269 for 296, or recording a word like ‘planet’ as ‘panlet”.)
