Remediations and training

Recent research has shown that practice with basic auditory processing tasks (i.e. auditory training) can improve performance on auditory processing measures and phonemic awareness measures. These auditory training benefits have also been recorded at the physiological level. Many of these tasks are incorporated into computer based auditory training programs such as Earobics and Fast Foreword.

There is no research supporting the following APD treatments:

    * Auditory Integration Training typically involves a child attending two 30-minute sessions per day for ten days.[18]
    * Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes (particularly, the Visualizing and Verbalizing program)
    * Physical activities that require frequent crossing of the midline (e.g., occupational therapy)
    * Sound Field Amplification
