Higher Percentage of Students have Auditory Memory Weaknesses
by Addie Cusimano

Throughout my years of testing I have found a higher percentage of students with weaknesses in the auditory memory areas than any other learning skill area even among those students whom we would not classify as learning disabled. In addition, most children who have attention deficit disorders and/or hyperactivity have serious auditory memory deficiencies. These children are desperately in need of remediation in the auditory skill areas.

I have used this technique for a number of years with students at my school and with students I tutor. The results are amazing!

Each aspect of memory is specific to itself. One part of the brain controls listening for isolated units of information such as a series of numbers, letters and words. Another part of the brain controls listening for information presented in context such as information presented in a sentence that makes sense.

"Just listen!"

That seems to come naturally enough for some children and adults but weakness in this area is a major problem for others. There is a higher percentage of students with weaknesses in the auditory memory areas than any other learning skill area.

Addie Cusimano, Educational Therapist, has created a workbook to develop attention, listening, processing, and recall of sentences and paragraphs. Most learning disabled students, and students with ADD or ADHD, are seriously weak in these areas. The systematic teaching of these skills is highly beneficial for them as well as for the average student to improve his or her listening skills. It teaches memory of fiction as well as non-fiction expanding the ability of students to recall orally presented material related to literature, history, science, and mathematical word problems. It also helps students to attend, listen, process and recall material that they read silently. (Listening to one's own thoughts.)

Note: Be sure to read the easy directions for maximum benefit. It is easy to administer. Sessions lasting only five to ten minute are recommended. Developmentally, it is appropriate for use with preschoolers to grade 6. Remedially, it is appropriate for students in grades pre-school through 12+
