Language Development: Auditory Perception. A Performance-Based Early Childhood-Special Education Teacher Preparation Program. Monograph 6.
Mann, Marlis; And Others
This monograph presents the module on auditory perception and its relationship to language development used in the Early Childhood-Special Education Teacher Preparation Program at the University of Virginia. The ontogeny for auditory perceptual skills, from the first through the 60th month, and auditory perceptual skill outcomes for the young child are listed. The importance of auditory perception for the child's general development and for reading readiness is discussed briefly. The bulk of this module consists of a presentation of the ontogeny, measurement techniques, and conditions for learning for the following learner characteristics: awareness of sound, focus of sound, figure ground discrimination, auditory discrimination, auditory memory, sequencing and synthesizing sound, and classification, integration and monitoring of sound. A discussion of how to identify and deal with auditory disorders is also included. Competencies which teachers need to facilitate the development of auditory perception and the module schedule and requirements are discussed. (ED)
