****I absolutely love this app. It works for so many of my auditory comprehension and auditory processing students! This app has the ability to add background noise with a sliding volume lever! My students enjoy the basketball reward offered at short intervals which is very motivating. (Jasmine S. SLP)****
Auditory Workout is a comprehensive, built- around research auditory processing program for students with language delay or Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD) and is aimed to help students with their language comprehension skills, auditory processing and following directions.
Auditory Workout was created by a certified speech and language pathologist for students ages 4–12 who exhibit auditory processing disorders or other related disorders (e.g., receptive language disorder or autism). Auditory Workout focuses on improving auditory attention and memory and auditory processing of increasingly longer and complex verbal directions.

- Basic Directions: 15 levels of difficulty

Reward Games included:

What's New in Version 2.0
Improved basketball game.
It Has It All & Is Research Based!
I love that this application works on multiple goals and you can use it with multiple clients at a time with data collection. Sometimes, with all that it features, it can get a bit overwhelming. That can be a blessing or a curse depending on how much time you spend prior to a session setting it up. I always spend a lot of time researching and trialing an application prior to using it with a client, so it gets easier the more you use it. What I love about this application is that it works on following different types of directions and gets progressively more difficult by adding additional concepts. In addition, you can add background noise.
One thing I really like that changed from the last version is that there are now two different reward games that a user can play! I would probably play either game with older or younger students. There are also more settings, but I still am not sure why there is an option to enable/disable audio since this is an auditory-specific application.
Good, could be Great with one improvement
As a Speech Pathologist working with school age children I find this app very useful; however, I need better descriptions of each level in the report section. Most of my students make errors based on the language used in the directions, therefore, I would like to have the vocabulary targeted at each level described in the report section along with their percentage correct. For example, tell me if the level is teaching before/after or above/below/next to.
I love the app, but it could be even better. Thank you for your consideration!
Students Love the App
My students love using the Auditory Workout App, I plug in earphones and each child has an opportunity to have their special turn. The activities progressively get more challenging and data tracts student's progress which is then used to guide group lessons. I like having the concepts before and after as well, in the beginning and the middle of directions.
The only improvement I would make is to add multi- step directions.
