How we we perceive, assimilate, analyse and adjust to new information through sound is a natural process which relies on the listener being able to discriminate between sounds, patterns of sound in language and integration of rhythm – but for some children, the process is more difficult, not because they have hearing issues but their brains struggle to decipher and make sense of sounds for example having trouble differentiating between ‘f’ or ‘th’ sounds.
The voice cannot produce what the ear does not hear
What are Forbrain Headphones?
Forbrain® headphones contain a little microphone and it is a very slick lightweight piece of kit that any child will be curious to try out. This equipment offers a real sense of entertainment value too. When the child reads out loud into the tiny microphone, their voice is heard by them through the listening part. Children always start off laughing at this strange experience of hearing their own voice played back to them, but in no time, they begin to enjoy the experience.
Your child talks into the microphone like any other headphone set, the sounds channel into the headphones and feed-backs for the child to hear as they talk. It is a bit like when you speak into a microphone connected to speakers you hear your voice only this is a tiny device and the sounds you hear are not taken into your ears directly but conducted through your bony skull! Forbrain® uses amplified bone conduction and natural air-conduction work with with your child’s voice to process information more clearly and understand communications better.
