there is a huge distinction between hearing and listening. autism, amongst other disabilities, affects your ability to listen, and not your ability to hear (in most cases) and the symptoms of poor listening skills are often attributed to the disability itself instead of to the consequence of the disability. it is essential that you know that if you suffer from poor listening skills, they can be improved and you do not have to live with a lower quality of life just because you have a disability that has little or nothing to do with the resultant lack of your listening skill.
hearing is the ability to pick up auditory sensations and stimuli known as sounds. you pick these up via your auditory stimuli located in your inner ear. listening, on the other hand, is the ability to separate the different auditory sensations that you are hearing into background noise and important information that needs to be processed. listening is an automatic action that you do unconsciously, and is developed early in life when you learn about things in the world. there are many different causes that affect the development of this listening, autism being high on the list of causal factors amongst other developmental disabilities and factors.
the sound listening corporation is a company that specializes in helping children and adults to develop these kinds of processes that are involved with listening. autism, adhd and other developmental disabilities can prevent you from fully developing this process originally, but they cannot prevent you from completing it through intensive training. with sound listening's revolutionary new program enlisten you will be able to train your mind and yourself to carefully distinguish between important and non important noises and sounds, thereby increasing your ability to effectively listen and hear at the same time.
enlisten has been specially created through years of hard work and research, and is able to help you optimize the skill you will come to know as listening. autism and other disabilities have stopped people from experiencing a normal type of life, and most people simply attribute their symptoms to autism, instead of to more simple things that can be cured. some of the symptoms of the lack of development of listening include: inability to concentrate, disinterest, poor concentration, distractibility, lack of interest, no motivation, poor spelling, messy hand writing, no focus, no interest in school or work, difficulty with planning, organization and strategy, and many more.
