Auditory Processing is basically the role the brain plays in the hearing process which ultimately enables us to develop learning skills.
It is never too late for individuals with dyslexia to learn to read, process and express
information more efficiently. Research shows that programs utilising multisensory
structured language techniques can help children and adults learn to read.
Your executive function, sitting at the front part of your brain, has also been named the “brain’s CEO”.
Auditory processing is how the brain attaches meaning to the sounds that one hears.
