Rose: I want to thank you for taking the time to discuss some aspects of what I have been calling “Fantasy and Witchcraft.” I am certain you would rather call it “Science and Art,” and for this discussion you certainly may.
To start off, why don’t you give the reader a brief definition of auditory integration training.
Madell: I wish I could say that it is science and art but you may be correct—it may be witchcraft. The scientist in me delayed getting involved with auditory integration training for more than 10 years because I could not figure out how this could work. I still cannot figure it out but I have seen what appear to be significant changes in so many kids that I felt I could not avoid becoming involved while we try and understand what is happening. As for the definition, auditory integration training is a treatment for reducing the negative effects of hypersensitive hearing that can occur as an isolated symptom or in clients diagnosed with autism, pervasive developmental disorder (PDD), attention deficit disorder, learning disabilities, or auditory processing disorders.
