My son uses an auditory trainer in school. It's provided by the school. I've seen it, but I don't recall what brand it is.
difficult child loves it -- calls the trainer his "headphones." lol It took a while to work out the kinks in the usage -- he presently has two teachers in different classrooms.
The teacher wears the microphone part of the trainer; of course, the headphone part stays with the student. When he changes classes, there's a basket that both parts are placed in and difficult child carries them back and forth between the classes. Successfully so far.
The auditory trainer is great in some ways, but it does have drawbacks. The teacher has to remember to turn on the trainer when lecturing -- difficult child and teachers have worked out signals in the event the teacher forgets to turn the microphone on -- he points to his earphones. Also, the teacher has to remember to turn the mic off when she engages in private conversations with-other students or faculty.
Another problem is that difficult child sometimes misses out on the free exchange of ideas between the class and teacher. For this reason, he doesn't use the trainer all the time -- just for lecturing or when they are having tests (the headphones help screen out distractions).
So while the trainer is helpful, it's not an ideal solution. Certainly not a cure.
There is a treatment for Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD). It's a computer program called FastForward. Might want to check into it. It's my understanding a parent can provide the treatment, but has to have the training. I don't know if the training is available in Israel, perhaps there's something the manufacturer can do in these type situations.
FastForward is not the only treatment for Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD) -- there's at least one other and there could be more. It's my understanding that treatment is most effective before the age of 10.
Glad to hear that one more problem has been identified. For me, identification at least helps me to understand difficult child's behaviors and adjust the environment the best I can to suit his needs.
Following are some FastForward links:
I don't remember which Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD) links I emailed to you previously. There are some on a thread in the General Forum Archives entitled "Captain of Your Ship?"
I don't know one thing about about import/export type problems and certainly not the rules in Israel. Just wondering if whatever firm you purchase the trainer from can mail it to you?
