Auditory processing (AP) difficulties are thought to play a role in poor educational performance for a substantial number of school-aged children. Children with AP difficulties hear well, but have trouble understanding speech in noise or in complex sound environments. Auditory training programs consist of practical exercises to train different listening skills, such as recognizing words in noise and understanding oral instructions. Studies suggest that auditory training programs may be an efficient strategy for improving speech perception in noise. Furthermore, without it being directly or explicitly stated, these programs could contribute to better school-based performance as a large part of teaching is done orally. The Logiciel d'Écoute dans le Bruit (LEB; Jutras et al., 2014) is a computer-based auditory training software developed for school-aged children struggling with listening in the presence of competing surrounding noise. This presentation is about a study conducted with children (8 to 12 years of age) with learning and AP difficulties who underwent 90 minutes per week of auditory therapy with the LEB, in bouts of 30 or 45 minutes per training session for eight weeks. Pre- and post-training measures, including speech in noise tests, questionnaires about listening behaviours and neurophysiological responses to speech stimuli will be presented. Correlations between behavioural and neurophysiological responses will be discussed.
