Now in a revised and updated second edition, Early Listening Skills is a practical manual for use with children and young people with underdeveloped listening skills related to hearing loss. Thirteen clear and easy to follow sections focus on skills such as auditory detection, discrimination, recognition, sequencing and memory. Each one is filled with a series of carefully designed activities to stimulate and develop auditory awareness and discrimination skills in children with a range of developmental levels and abilities.

Features include:

  • A wide range of activities suited to both the early years and home settings
  • Links to the EYFS framework and topics reflecting the EYFS and KS1 curriculum
  • Photocopiable Record Sheets designed to document the child’s development over time

As most of the activities are non-verbal, they are well suited for children with limited spoken language, as well as children with special educational needs and disability and EAL learners. Whilst primarily designed for early years practitioners, SENCOs, specialist teachers, therapists and other professionals, the activity sheets and guidance also make it an invaluable tool for parents and caregivers looking to stimulate listening skills at home.
