An auditory perception test gives clear insights into your sensory-motor, communication, creative and emotional performance as well as your energy levels and the capacity to learn. It shows the balance between your inner and outer perception. Your listening response usually shows significant distortions if you are under stress, have emotional issues, or have difficulty with movement, balance or coordination, speech or written language, maths, memory or motivation. Your pattern of listening performance illuminates your present capacity to happily reach your potential as well as your capacity to learn, socialise and maintain dynamic personal growth. An assessment allows us to design an appropriate program to help normalise the way you process sound and unlock your hidden potential. If you have three or more of the following issues, it would be sensible to book a listening assessment: - Anxious or nervous (this can often be well hidden – even from parents and teachers - Low attention – easily distracted, poor concentration and often low comprehension - Behavioural or social problems – abusive, aggressive, attention-seeking, oppositional, violent - Bored easily lead – often says: “I don’t know what to do” or “I’m bored ” - Daydreams, too often “in their own world” or “away with the fairies” - Disorganised – homework, task management and completion, punctuality, low motivation - Hard to sit still at school – including those who are hyperactive and or distractible - Hearing problems – often have had ear infections or chronic congestion - Performing below potential – this may not be show up as a Learning difficulty in intelligent clients - Listening difficulty – needs repeated instructions, reinforced with visual cues, often says: “What, What?” or “Huh?” - Maths is difficult or memory weak - Low self confidence or self-esteem, negative attitudes, self-critical or even depression - Overloads easily – particularly if there are many things to process; may look away when being spoken to. - Poor posture, low muscle tone, clumsy, poor balance or coordination – inadequate gross motor development - Poor handwriting – poor pencil grip, knitting or tying shoelaces hard – inadequate fine motor development - Speech – unclear or delayed, stutter, poor vocabulary or language difficulty - Reading or writing difficulty including spelling - Slow to react or respond – this suggests processing speed may be undermining performance - Very emotional – anger, tears, frustration, delayed emotional maturity, emotional regulation difficulties - Fatigue, tired after school, low energy - Learning, attending or performing below potential … is Listening the issue? Harry Armytage offers a comprehensive Listening assessment to identify the underlying causes of learning and performance deficits. This takes 90+ minutes (30m+ if under five) and is best done in the morning when clients are fresh. What can a listening assessment reveal? Our listening assessments comprise otoacoustic emissions (an important aspect of hearing), processing speed, memory and auditory perception tests. All these components give us a very good picture of the way in which you process sounds and integrate sounds with other sensory information. These are the foundational skills which support and enable effective learning.
