Auditory Processing: Soundtracks
By: Renata Bursten, Dragonfly Staff




Sharpening up auditory processing skills is fun and easy with this game. To make the Lotto action more exciting start the tape at different places every time. If the Lotto action of the game is too abstract to be appropriate, try cutting the picture cards into individual cards and matching them to the sounds heard. You can offer as few or many choices as is appropriate.
