Dr Fabrice Wallois and colleagues said: "Our results demonstrate that the human brain, at the very onset of the establishment of a cortical circuit for auditory perception, already discriminates subtle differences in speech syllables."
Auditory Perception Training integrates auditory, visual, tactile and kinesthetic stimuli.
Based on the STRF model of auditory perception and associated distortions, however, it seems quite likely that informational-masking paradigms may be particularly good candidates for tests that are sensitive to central auditory dysfunction.

The role of auditory perception and speech perception
Auditory perception of the depth of space is mainly based on spectral and amplitude changes in sound waves originating from sound sources and reaching the listener (Coleman, 1963).
Topics on the coding of sounds include studies on complex sounds in an animal model and its implications for human hearing, several studies on temporal and spatiotemporal patterns, and the problem of auditory perception. Articles on plasticity, learning, and cognition include studies comparing sound stimuli to processing, an examination of task-dependent plasticity in the ferret, and lessons learned from the study of event-related brain potentials.
92-95) does not distinguish adequately between the perception of a single source by two ears (resulting in no more than the maximum binaural time delay) and the perception of multiple, spatially separated sources by two ears (resulting in a delay dependent on their relative distance and direction); this is crucial to understanding the difference between stereo sound reproduction on headphones and on loudspeakers, and to understanding time-intensity trading in auditory perception. On page 102, the threshold of hearing is said to be around 10 watts per square meter at 3,000 Hz for people with acute hearing.
To identify a client with a specific learning disability, the diagnostic process should include: (a) relevant medical, educational, and work history obtained through client interview, (b) a measure of the client's potential as determined by an individually administered intelligence test, (c) a measure of academic achievement as determined by a battery of norm-referenced achievement tests and (d) a measure of any other abilities deemed pertinent by the diagnostician, such as visual-motor integration, visual and auditory perception, motor skills, oral expression, written expression or adaptive skills.
