It's Auditory Processing Disorder Day!
Listening and Auditory Processing: The Two Sides of the Same Coin
The Ear's Side
Listening is the ability to pick up the sound we want and leave out those we don’t want. It is the first step toward auditory processing.
Poor listening is hearing too much or, in other words, receiving too much the background noise that we do not need at the expense of the message we want to hear. This is the teacher’s voice in the noisy classroom or the voice of your friend in a busy restaurant.
The Brain’s Side
The better the listening, the clearer the message reaching the brain to be processed resulting to better attention span, decrease brain fog and the feeling of a sharper mind.
