Searching and then Locating Sounds


GOAL: The child searches for and/or finds the auditory stimulus. 

Searching is a prerequisite skill for localizing.


 Children with hearing in only one ear will not  be able to localize to the sound source.




(I have given this information to parents for many years and don't remember the source or


  if I wrote the protocol. If you know, please contact me!)


Target these localization skills  at home and record your child's skill level:

    a. The skill is not present 
 b. The skill is emerging 
  c. The skill is in process 
d. The skill is acquired


1. searches for loud environmental sounds (vacuum, telephone) or noisemakers (drum, bell) 
__ close (3’)  __ far (10’)   __ another room 
__ inside  __ outside 
__ in quiet  __ noise 
__ prompted  __ spontaneous 
 
2. searches for source of music  
__ close (3’)  __ far (10’)   __ another room 
__ inside  __ outside 
__ in quiet  __ noise 
__ prompted  __ spontaneous 
 
3. searches for source of vocalizations (e.g., exaggerated suprasegmentals) 
__ close (3’)  __ far (10’)   __ another room 
__ inside    __ outside 
__ in quiet    __ noise 
__ prompted    __ spontaneous 
 
4.searches for source of discourse (e.g., connected speech) 
__ close (3’)  __ far (10’)   __ another room 
__ inside  __ outside 
__ in quiet  __ noise 
__ prompted  __ spontaneous 

                                
                                                 This is one of my Little Listeners
                                                       who is now in High School!



5. localizes to loud environmental sounds (vacuum, telephone) or noisemakers (drum, bell)  
__ close (3’)  __ far (10’)   __ another room 
__ inside  __ outside 
__ in quiet  __ noise 
__ prompted  __ spontaneous 
__ one level  __ multiple levels 

6. localizes to music source  
__ close (3’)  __ far (10’)   __ another room 
__ inside  __ outside 
__ in quiet  __ noise 
__ prompted  __ spontaneous 
__ one level  __ multiple levels 

7. localizes to speaker making vocalizations  
(e.g., exaggerated suprasegmentals) 
__ close (3’)  __ far (10’)  __ another room 
__ inside  __ outside 
__ in quiet  __ noise 
__ prompted  __ spontaneous 

8. localizes to speaker using discourse  
__ close (3’)  __ far (10’)   __ another room 
__ inside  __ outside 
__ in quiet  __ noise 
__ prompted  __ spontaneous 
__ one level  __ multiple levels
