Auditory Training and Transfer to Spelling

The training of auditory discrimination is successful in 40 to 75% of the cases depending on the task. Volume, Gap edtection, and Frequency discrimination were much easier to learn, while the time order and the side order were most difficult.

The transfer to phonological awareness was 100%., i.e. all participants reached the range of the controls. The transfer to spelling was smaller, but when the analysis was restricted to those spelling errors, that could be prevented by better listening, the success was much higher. The figure shows the effects in the form of a diagram.


The columns shows the mean percentile before and after the training. The green columns indicate significant differences between pre- and post-training values.
