While this remains a very plausible explanation, another possible factor that might explain this pattern is that situations involving the types of auditory discrimination required in the TARPA protocol are not very common in the everyday socioverbal environment, at least not in the particular way in which they are presented in this context.
2) Auditory discrimination was significantly improved in unexposed control rats at both doses.
The text includes inventories and checklists to assess the interests and priorities of children, teens, and adults; graded word recognition lists and reader's passages; phonics and structural analysis inventories; English language learning, spelling, arithmetic, visual and auditory discrimination, preliteracy and emerging literacy, and cloze tests; and instructions for evaluating language abilities and constructing curriculum-based assessments.
The 2010 American Academy of Audiology Clinical practice guidelines diagnosis, treatment and management of children and adults with central auditory processing disorder [58] and the 2005 American Speech-Language-Hearing Association's (Central) auditory processing disorders: Working group on auditory processing disorders [59] both recommended that a central auditory test battery should include tests involving both speech and nonspeech stimuli focusing on (but not limited to): binaural hearing, dichotic stimuli, auditory discrimination, competing and degraded acoustic signals, and the processing of auditory patterns and temporal stimuli.
The app features Widgit symbols and over 700 individual target words which target spoken production of minimal pair words and auditory discrimination (identifying the difference between sounds in words).
Superbly recorded productions enhanced with the utilization of rhymes incorporated with pop, jazz, folk, rap, swing, reggae, and world music styles, this creative and innovative series includes "Move" (focusing on receptive language skills necessary to understand directions); "Sing" (emphasizing expressive language), "Play" (employing simple rhythm instruments, body percussion, and movement promoting auditory discrimination and processing); "Mixing It Up" (incorporating moving, singing, and playing).
Auditory discrimination and speech production in the blind child.
Our data suggest that the children we studied who lacked basic listener capabilities and who then received intense instruction in auditory discrimination were then better able to attend to the natural verbal occurrences in their environments, and thus learn from them.
It follows therefore, that even the simplest conditional auditory discrimination (that involving a nearly simultaneous identity match) would be observed to fall somewhere above ABLA level 5 (a presumed simple auditory discrimination) and perhaps above or below ABLA level 6 (a conditional auditory-visual discrimination).
visual discrimination among multiple exemplars, matching to sample, object manipulation, eye tracking and scanning skills, auditory discrimination, and a pointing response, Leaf & McEachin, 1999; Lovaas, 2003).
The authors distinguish between the knowledge children construct about the nature of a writing system and their skills, such as visual and auditory discrimination, short-term visual memory, and phonological segmentation.
For auditory perception, four skills were distinguished: (a) auditory discrimination (AD): ability to differentiate among auditorially presented stimuli; (b) auditory memory (AM): ability to recall a sequence of auditorially presented stimuli; (c) auditory blending (AB): ability to perceive separate auditory stimuli (phonemes) and to combine them into a whole unit (word); and (d) auditory comprehension (AC): ability to interpret and to understand auditorially presented material.
