Easy Auditory Processing Disorder Activities


Today we are sharing Auditory Processing Disorder Activities. Listening and handling information are skills that must be acquired throughout life. So, how can you help your child improve their auditory processing skills? 

In today’s post, I’ll share with you a list of really easy activities at home that you can practice all day long to strengthen and improve the hearing treatment of your child. So let’s have a look at some of the auditory sensory activities for kids. 

Auditory Processing Disorder Activities

Practice Sequencing with Sounds

Ask your child to cover his or her eyes with his or her hands while you make a noise like closing the door, sneezing, or playing with a touch of the piano. 

First, ask your baby to identify the noise. Try two noises one by one. Your child will then recognize both sounds in sequence. Add the number of sounds in order until your kid is tired of the game. Some of the Auditory Processing Disorder Activities for noises are:

  • Whistling
  • Blowing a whistle
  • Sharpening a pencil
  • Unwrapping candy
  • Snapping fingers
  • Hammering
  • Coughing
  • Tearing paper
  • Drumming with fingers
  • Slamming a book closed
  • Ringing a bell
  • Clapping
  • Crumpling paper

Name the Mistake

Recite or read out a familiar text, poem, or rhyme while changing words or wording. Your child should raise their hand and shout if they hear a mistake. 

You also have the option to change words, grammar, sound, and meaning. You may also change the order of words or parts of words. Some examples include:

  • Old McDoodle had a farm…
  • Once a time upon…
  • Twinkle, twinkle little car…

Listen for Sounds

Have your child sit on the ground, close their eyes and identify the sounds you are making. You can drop a pencil, bounce a ball, tap the window, use a stapler, cut with scissors, sip a coffee mug, or type on your pc. 

Swap roles and then let your child produce different sounds for you to identify.

Clapping Syllables

Start by pronouncing each family member’s name by clapping it syllable by syllable. Next, have your child say and applaud the name along with you. 

Each clap represents a syllable. At the end of each name, ask “how many syllables did you hear?” You can also ask your child to place two fingers under their chin, so they can feel their chin drop for each syllable. It also allows your child to sense the vibration of every syllable. 

Sound Sort

Make photo cards out of magazines or computer art. Glue the images to cards and laminate them if desired. Spread out the chosen images in front of your child and ask them to find the image whose name starts with a certain sound. 

When you find a picture, ask your child to name the picture and the initial sound. For example, you may say “what picture starts with sound/s/?    Your child may reply, “snake, /s/.” Then repeat using the middle and end sounds. 

Picture Guess

Using the same photographs, put them in a bag.    Choose a photo from the bag and do not share it with your child. Pronounce the name of the image, sound through sound. For a cat image, you must provide /c/– /a/ –/t/. Then your child guesses what the image is based on your isolated sounds. Take turns guessing the other photo.

We are happy that you reached the end. I hope that these would be helpful for you in ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), If so then do give a share.
