Take the simulation here.
I found this simulation through this site.
SIGNS OF AUDITORY DYSFUNCTION: (no diagnosed hearing problem)
1. HYPERSENSITIVITY TO SOUNDS (auditory defensiveness):
HYPOSENSITIVITY TO SOUNDS (under-registers):
I had to attend another class before I could go to kindergarden because I was 4 years old and spoke like a 2 year old. One year of intervention made a huge difference. I then went to AM Kindergarden and then while most went home I went to a special education class afterwards. I always had a full day of school.
By middle school, I started noticing how different classroom environments affected my hearing. I would get anxiety when I found out my seat was in the back or if the classroom was huge. Also the more students there were, the more likely I was going to miss things.
I would get some teachers who just didn’t understand when I explained I needed to sit close to the front. I think this is because I was mainstreamed into the regular classroom when I was in 1st grade and no longer had an IAP (individual accommodation plan) so they didn’t believe me. But just because I was able to move into a “regular” classroom doesn’t mean that I still didn’t need help from time to time.
