Description: This game targets six skill areas students with auditory processing deficits struggle to master. Match the difficulty level to student needs with a hierarchy of stimuli.
"What happened?" "Who did it?" "Where did it happen?" That's what students try to figure out as they complete auditory tasks correctly in this mystery-solving game.
The six, 35-card decks each target a different skill. The cards in each deck are arranged in a hierarchy, every card, with the exception of the Auditory Cohesion deck, has three stimulus items that progress in difficulty. The cards target these skill areas:
Auditory Discrimination: identify same sounds in words, absurd words in sentences, and absurd sentences in paragraphs
Auditory Analysis/Segmentation: identify the number of syllables in words and sounds in words
Auditory Closure: fill in missing words, syllables, and sounds
Auditory Blending/Manipulation: blend syllables and phonemes to make words; delete and exchange to make words
Auditory Memory: repeat sequences and follow directions
Auditory Cohesion: make inferences, paraphrase, and solve riddles and math story problems
How To Use It: Grade this game for the skill of the students using the hierarchy of stimuli. Help the students complete the mystery by using their auditory processing skills!
