Frequency-Specific, Binaural Stimulation of Students with Reading and Spelling Difficulties.
Johansen, Kjeld
A study examined the hearing of learning disabled students (such as dyslexics) in an attempt to classify, identify, and design auditory stimulation procedures. Subjects, 40 students from seventh-grade classes and 40 volunteers (ages 9 to 23) with reading and spelling difficulties, were given listening tests. Results indicated that many of the learning disabled students had a left ear advantage while many of the control group had right ear advantage. Additionally, left-handed students were more likely to have learning disabilities than right-handed students. A case study involved an 11-year-old female reading several years below age level. The subject underwent daily 10- to 15-minute auditory stimulation in an attempt to alter ear advantage from left to right. After 18 months, the subject advanced from a second-grade level to a sixth-grade level. (Twenty-five references are attached.) (RS)
