Just as seeing is meaningless until the brain interprets the images and decides what actions to take, so hearing is useless without auditory processing. Auditory processing is what happens to sounds after they've been received by the ear and sent on to the brain for interpretation. Auditory processing is actually a collection of skills, including auditory memory, discrimination, sequencing and blending. The term also includes phonological awareness and related skills. Auditory processing skills impact a student's ability to learn to read, to follow oral direction and to benefit from oral presentation of information.
