Auditory Learning. Dimensions in Early Learning Series.
Zigmond, Naomi K.; Cicci, Regina
The monograph discusses the psycho-physiological operations for processing of auditory information, the structure and function of the ear, the development of auditory processes from fetal responses through discrimination, language comprehension, auditory memory, and auditory processes related to written language. Disorders of auditory learning stemming from brain dysfunction (agnosia, aphasia, dyslexia), lack of discrimination ability, poor sequencing ability, or neurogenic learning disorders are discussed. Auditory learning is evaluated and an annotated list of test sources is given encompassing hearing evaluation, infant and preschool tests, picture vocabulary, intelligence, readiness, memory, analysis, specific auditory abilities, synthesis, and research batteries. Suggestions made for teaching both preschool and school age children include methods for developing attention span, auditory discrimination and perception, memory, and language development. A list of teaching materials, 18 annotated references for parents and teachers, and a 50-item annotated bibliography are provided. (JB)
