Aphasia Treatment    Aphasia Therapy   Speech   Reading Comprehension

Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) Software

Improve listening and auditory comprehension skills with unlimited, independent computer-based auditory processing exercises for use at home or in the clinic.

"The programs  are producing results for my son, Jeremy. Thanks for a wonderful product."

-Paul Thornton

The programs below for CAPD & APD and Auditory Processing and Auditory discrimination were designed and tested by certified speech-language pathologists (SLPs). They are not intended to replace your speech therapist, but can be used in with your therapist or at home for unlimited independent practice.

Direction Following Out Loud

User hears spoken instructions to move different color, size and shape objects on the screen.  Over 500,000 exercises at 200 difficulty levels with pre-recorded human speech.  Also provides patient with spoken feedback after an incorrect answer ("You're moving the Red Square, you should be moving the Blue Rectangle").

Great for impulsivity (often present in Attention Deficit Disorder, ADD).  If the user begins the exercise before listening to the full instructions, the program stops, tells them to wait for the instructions, and then repeats the instructions. Like most of our programs, it doesn't have "eye candy" which would distract children and annoy adults. Children still find it engaging because of the human voice an interactive feedback such as "You're moving the shapes in the wrong order, try again."

Appropriate for age 4 to adult.



Understanding Questions Out Loud (Deluxe version)

Auditory Processing Disorder therapy software: Understanding Questions

Understanding Questions Out

User hears a question (spoken in a human voice) and must select an appropriate answer. Over 5,000 exercises in 3 difficulty levels.  Appropriate for ages 10 to adult.




Aphasia Tutor 1+: Words OutLoud (Deluxe version)

Originally designed to improve written word retrieval, this program can be used for improving sound-letter association (by speaking individual letter sounds aloud), and spelling to dictation by hiding the picture or word cue, and requiring the child to type a letter or word based on hearing it spoken.

Appropriate for children older than 4 up thru adults.





Aphasia Tutor 2+: Sentences Outloud (Deluxe)

This was also originally designed to improve written word retrieval, but in the deluxe version the written cue (phrase, definition, or sentence) may be hidden, and the child types an answer based on hearing a phrase, sentence, or definition, and completing it.

Appropriate for ages 10 to adult.


Auditory Discrimination

Auditory discrimination:  a central auditory processing skill involving differentiating among phonemes—the smallest significant units of sound in a language. Phonemes are combined into words. Example:  the word "goes" is made up of three phonemes: "g," "oh," and "zzz." Auditory discrimination is part of phonology which, in turn, is one of the five components of language.

Auditory discrimination is one component of central auditory processing skills or auditory perception. The other components are as follows:

  • auditory memory: the ability to recall a sequence of auditory stimuli or phonemes auditory
  • blending: the ability to perceive separate phenomes, divide a word into phenomes, and combine phenomes into words
  • auditory comprehension: the ability to comprehend and interpret information that is presented orally

Sights 'n Sounds (Deluxe)

Works on the patient's ability to say sounds or words. Shows them a picture, word and/or speaks the word (in a human voice). Then they repeat the sound back and  hear their own speech and the model sound for comparison.

Especially helpful for children with auditory discrimination difficulties. In the deluxe version, you may create a custom lesson to work on differentiating trouble sounds (i.e., children who have difficulty distinguishing /w/ from /r/, /p/ from /b/, etc.). You can record lists of words, one at a time, which contain the two sounds to be contrasted. The program speaks a single word aloud, records the child repeating it, and then plays back what they said immediately followed by the model. The printed word can then be displayed for them, so they can see which word they were trying to imitate. For example, if a child hears the word "ring" but says "rain," they get to hear the model a second time after hearing themselves, and then see the word "ring" in print. For readers, this can really boost their sound-letter association, as well as help them to understand their errors. 
Appropriate for ages 4 to adult.

Auditory Processing Disorder (APD or CAPD) Definition

Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) (previously known as "Central Auditory Processing Disorder" (CAPD)) is not a hearing impairment, it's a random inability to process what is heard. 
Persons with this condition often:
  • have trouble paying attention to and remembering information presented orally;
  • have problems carrying out multi-step directions given orally;
  • have poor listening skills; and
  • need more time to process information.

It appears to others as a problem with listening. A child with APD may be accused of "not listening". This information from the definition of Auditory Processing Disorder from the  Wikipedia.
