Tips for Meeting the Needs of Auditory Learners
"If you are a strong auditory learner, it means that in most circumstances you need to hear yourself say it in order to effectively commit it to memory."
- Cynthia Ulrich Tobias, M.Ed.
How to Teach Reading to Auditory Learners
Child1st addresses the needs of the auditory learner in our Easy-for-Me™ Reading Program by making sure that when children are learning, they are also sounding or reading out loud. One of the most powerful strategies in this program is the daily practice called “Quick Draw.” In this game, children utilize all three main modalities: auditory, tactile, and visual. Children who rely on hearing their voices as they learn thrive with this approach.
Auditory Amplification Devices:
We carry auditory amplification devices that are wonderful for auditory learners. When they read using one of these devices, they are able to hear their voice much more clearly. Believe me, these function better than the old tin can and string devices we had when I was little.
