For the professional:
This game is an auditory training exercise that is designed to incrementally improve the player's ability to hear and distinguish a different sound in each ear occurring at once. This skill requires a developed auditory pathway to each cortical hemisphere (side of the brain) as well as a developed auditory pathway in the corpus collosum (between each hemisphere). This ability of a player to perform this skill indicates the status of their auditory system development. Lesions or under-development of these auditory pathways have been shown in many studies to limit abilities in; a) focusing attention in difficult listening environments, b) difficulty learning to read, c) difficulty following spoken instruction, d) difficulty putting visual information together with auditory information. Improving these auditory pathways is crucial to address prior to focus therapy or training on higher levels skills.
Fixed a bug that prevented older children from progressing past level 36
Ratings and Reviews
Dichotic listening got worse
Prescribed by our audiologist, doing this program twice a week for 2 months resulted in a few stable and some decreased scores in the final Acoustic Pioneer report. It’s also highly repetitive, and my child really didn’t like it. Finally, it’s expensive. Good in concept, and the developers obviously tried to make it fun, but I cannot recommend it. Very disappointing.
Worst game ever
My daughter hates it so much. Always freezes and that bird voice is so annoying that even for an adult it’s awful to listen to. Boring graphics and don’t keep kids interested in this process at all.
The app gets stock in the first 5 minutes. It is not usable
