Auditory integration

Auditory integration can be of benefit to children, adolescents and adults with a variety of speech and/or language difficulties, both spoken and written . These might include difficulties with one or several of the following: 

  • Speech Sounds (pronouncing speech sounds correctly)

  • Receptive Language (understanding of language)

  • Expressive Language (speaking)

  • Auditory Processing/listening

  • Written Language (dyslexia)

  • Reading

  • Spelling

  • Phonological awareness (awareness of speech sounds)

  • Dyspraxia

  • Autism Spectrum Disorders

  • Understanding and remembering information and instructions

  • Concentration

  • Self confidence and self esteem

  • Behaviour – when it may be due to poor communication skills

  • Hypersensitivity to loud or particular sounds/noises


When the sub-skills for listening and learning are strengthened through listening to Johansen IAS CDs, language processing abilities can be seen to improve. Concentration, listening and understanding of language are enhanced as incoming information is dealt with more quickly and efficiently.  Improvements in reading and spelling are often seen, as the ability to analyse the sound structure of words is strengthened, making decoding much easier.
