The progress report is presented as a graph. It is recommended that you work through this with your child’s clinician to best understand your child’s results.
You should not compare your child's results to this example.
In general, our research has found that children with Spatial Processing Disorder will improve by approximately 10 dB over the course of training (100–120 games). This means that, compared to before your child started training, they will be able to process a target noise – like his or her teacher’s voice – when the background noise is a lot louder.
The clinician who is monitoring your child’s progress will be able to provide feedback on how your child is progressing. It is recommended that the clinician reassess your child with the LiSN-S diagnostic test once the Sound Storm training is complete.
Research documenting the development and evaluation of Sound Storm (previously known as the LiSN & Learn Auditory Training Software) has been published in peer-reviewed journals and textbooks. A list of these publications can be found in ‘The Evidence’ section on this website.
Before using Sound Storm, it is essential to establish that a child has:
Sound Storm has been clinically proven to remediate Spatial Processing Disorder in Children aged 6 - 12yrs. Children younger than 6 are too young to be diagnosed with Spatial Processing Disorder and are unlikely to maintain the attention needed to complete the training.
Children over 12 are less likely to find the app engaging, and would need to be highly motivated to complete the training. If they do complete the program however, it may still be effective.
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.
