Amblyaudia

Amblyaudia is a disorder in which a child develops a dominant ear that suppresses incoming auditory information from the opposite ear, in turn, creating a “lazy ear”. Listening through an asymmetric system can lead to difficulties with speech perception, following directions, and hearing in noise, which may affect language acquisition and academic achievement.

ARIA Therapy

Fortunately, Amblyaudia can be treated using a newly-introduced, clinically-baked auditory therapy called ARIA. ARIA (Auditory Rehabilitation for Interaural Asymmetry) is a training program created by Dr. Deborah W. Moncrief, Ph.D. from the University of Pittsburgh. ARIA therapy utilizes dichotic listening therapy in order to treat Amblyaudia. Dr. Moncrieff’s therapy was featured in the International Journal of Audiology and the results from her clinical trials support the feasibility of this training approach for improving a larger then normal intramural asymmetry on dichotic listening tasks and also suggest that this type of training may facilitate language skills in some children.

Therapy Goal

The goal of ARIA therapy is to correct the asymmetric system your child is listening through and allow both ears to work together in unison. Improving the symmetry or both auditory pathways will free up cognitive resources to be used elsewhere, making both listening and learning more efficient. Amblyaudia can usually be treated with five one-hour sessions over a span of 5 weeks.

We are very excited to offer this time efficient and research based therapy. We look forward to working with you and your child and giving your child the skills necessary to become a more efficient listening, both in and outside of the classroom. Don’t hesitate to call any of our offices for more information.
