Auditory Sensory Activities For Autism


In the post, we are sharing Auditory Sensory Activities For Autism. Does your kid seem to be hearing selectively? You tell her (or she) to do this or that and you’re very fortunate if a little bit of it gets done? Yeah, it can be infuriating for a mom. Just ask how I know. 

It turns out that there may be an honest reason and maybe, just maybe, he’s not really ignoring you.

Auditory attention and auditory processing activities for kids are important cognitive skills that can take some work. Luckily, many quick and fun brain training activities can enhance your child’s ability to listen, remember and act if needed.

some signs of auditory attention or ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) can include:

  • Difficulty remembering. This may range from the difficulty of remembering a few simple directions to forgetting mathematical facts to the inability to remember the characters in a story that has just been read out loud.
  • Constant difficulty in understanding the sounds of letters or how sounds go together to shape words.  In other words, reading difficulties.
  • Difficulty identifying rhyming words.
  • Some kind of spelling issue.
  • Constantly omitting sounds while speaking or improperly pronouncing common words.
  • Trouble focusing if there are too many distracting sounds in the background.
  • Difficulty distinguishing sounds overall.
  • Often request information or directions for repetition. You could hear “Huh?” or “What?” quite a bit.
  • Problems in organizing or expressing thoughts.

Red/Green Light

Here is another old-style game that is perfect for practicing listening skills, with the extra bonus of your child needing to respond quickly. In case you don’t remember what to do. 

Your child is standing away from you and running as fast as he can towards you when you say ‘green light’ but will stop as soon as possible when you say “red light”. 

If you have several players, the person that gets to you first is the winner. If somebody doesn’t stop when you say “red light”, they have to start from the beginning.

Musical chairs

It is not necessary to have a large group to play musical chairs, but it is certainly useful to have at least a few people. Provide a seat less than you have players. As you play music, the players march around the chairs. 

As the music stops, players attempt to sit in the empty chairs. Whoever left without a chair came out. It is an excellent activity to respond quickly to auditory changes.


Simon is an electronic solitaire game where colorful buttons turn on and make sounds in different models. Once the game goes through a pattern, you need to remember the buttons to be pressed to complete the same pattern. 

Listening to the sounds is an excellent cognitive activity.


The very premise of Twister is to listen attentively to the referee as she tells you to put some body parts on some color on the board to play. It may be played with a kid as well as a lot. 

Whenever you can combine the whole body action with the cognitive skill you are working on, this is a good thing.
