I have been purchasing materials from LinguiSystems for years now, and they've never let me down! The materials are high quality and very functional. No-Glamour for Auditory Processing is so helpful for children with auditory memory deficits, helping them to improve their listening skills and remember directions and details. The book covers many skill levels with many fun and interesting activities for each level!

- Children create mental representations of semantic information, forming complex association networks among different bits of knowledge. Children with difficulty in processing form fewer associations than peers (Gillam, Hoffman, Marler, & Wynn-Dancy, 2002).
- Individuals with processing difficulties typically have normal hearing and intelligence, but they are observed to have difficulty attending to and remembering auditory information, have problems following multi-step directions, have poor listening skills, and have low academic performance in multiple subject areas (NIDCD, 2001).
- Cognitive training has been used to remediate auditory deficits by teaching children to actively self-regulate and monitor message comprehension skills and to develop problem-solving strategies. Cognitive therapy may include language training, vocabulary development, and the teaching of organizational skills (Keith, 1999).
- Auditory processing pertains to listening for and comprehending information along with using it for specific purposes. This publication highlights the importance of listening and processing auditory information. Effective listening strategies include listening for details and main ideas, summarizing, predicting, recognizing cognates, drawing inferences, and recognizing word-order patterns (NCLRC, 2004).
No Glamour Auditory Processing incorporates these principles and is also based on expert professional practice.
