It is recommended that a child plays 2 games/day, 5 days/week, for a total of 10 weeks. So, they should complete 100 games in total. This is the requirement for successful remediation of Spatial Processing Disorder with Sound Storm.
During the training, the child will progress through to new worlds, and earn diamonds, feathers and other items that start to appear on the characters of the games as they’re earned.
Once the child has started their training, you can use the player setup screen to access their progress reports by tapping the graph icon next to the player’s name.
This important function allows the family to monitor the child’s progress, and to share the reports with you.
The Sound Storm Number indicates improvement as play progresses. It is displayed on the screen after each game (40 sentences) has been completed. However, it is not displayed until the first 10 games are completed i.e. after five days of playing two games per day.
Each Sound Storm application purchased can be used with up to three players who are registered on the Player Setup Screen. For example, if two children who are siblings require the training, both can use the software. A parent/guardian can also set themselves up as a player so that he or she can try the game without affecting their child’s performance.
A player must log in and do their training using their unique player name. It is very important that no unregistered players use the software or access a specific player’s account to play the games because their performance will impact the registered player’s progress and reward system.
Sound Storm can be used with any headphones that have a good high-frequency response. To provide consistent results, parents should ensure that they use the same headphones throughout the training period.
While there have been no clinical trials carried out on ages above 12, there is anecdotal evidence that suggests that Sound Storm is likely to remediate Spatial Processing Disorder in adults as well as children over the age of 12.
If your child is suffering from a temporary hearing loss then it is ideal you wait until recovered before using Sound Storm.
If the hearing loss in permanent it is best to do the training as close to how the child usually hears.
If using headphones, it is import to make sure the volume down as it will be amplified. If only def in one ear, you can adjust the settings in your device to simulate a balanced audio environment. We recommend using noise cancelling headphones and do not recommend bone conducting headphones for using Sound Storm.
