Our method - AUDIVA® products

Since the beginning of the 90s we manufacture auditory training products which are meanwhile thousandfold used and are high in quality and durability.

Our hearing training devices are utilized in the field of logopedics, ergotherapy, speech therapy and others (see here). They are both applied in therapeutic treatment and at home in the environment of the person concerned.

A daily auditory training in a familiar environment parallel to the weekly therapy sessions is advantageous. However, it can also be conducted autonomously, without therapeutic support.

We offer the following procedures:

Hearing perception training (HTP) applied by the hearing perception training-devices:
HPT  home, HPT praxis, HPT standard and HPT spectrum (see here).
You listen to music (phase A as receptive music therapy) and perform speech exercises (phase B as receptive and active speech conformation, with the own voice via microphone (self-perception) and an extrinsic voice (audiobooks or mother's voice)). In the HPT-devices we build in high tone filtering (Hochtonfilterung) and sound lateralisation (Lateralisierung), moving the tone laterally between the ears. The body perception is involved in the products: soundbox (Klangbox)  and the bone hearer (Knochenhörer).

Dichotic hearing training with the DichoTrainer:
DichoTrainer and DichoTrainer PROFI (see here).
It works with speech (timely precise speech conformation for left and right ear, linked to a playful task).

Functional auditory and visual training with the BrainFit:
BrainFit home, BrainFit play and BrainFit easy (see hier).
It works with artificial klicks and sounds, precise intervals in correspondance with a playful task

Specific or non-specific?

AUDIVA hearing training works with the HPT with music (phase A as receptive music therapy) on a level which is not specified on symptoms. This hearing training DOESN'T require attentiveness or action by the person listening.

The listener can relax or carry out other creative activities which his express innermost parts. Therefore there is principally no age limit (1-99 years) and it is suitable for subjects with development delay through to mental and physical deficiency.

This form of therapy is of particular value because it represents an antipole towards the rationality of school and society which focus on goals and success. This is increasingly recognised, as recent research reports on the effect of music show.

The quote of Lorenz Oken describes this best:
„The eye brings men into the world, the ear brings the world into men.“

Learning receptivity is co-affected by all types of perceptual disorder. As soon as perception takes place, learning happens. This is why learning receptivity – contingent upon concentration and attentiveness – needs to be improved first of all.

Specific linguistic support:

HearingPerceptionTrainer HPT in phase B: With microphone and headphones it provides the ear with the self-spoken word amplified in the consonant and formant range. This is achieved by the filtering in the HPT device. The ear receives then an exact echo of the own voice. The person can learn to perceive and, as a consequence, to express himself better.

A good speech perception is the basis for the cognition, learning, speaking, writing and spelling of otherwise difficult speech patterns.
