Listening is taken for granted until challenges arise. Listening is a very complicated learned skill. Listening challenges can dramatically slow a child or youth’s learning and reduce their ability for getting along in the world. Listening challenges can confuse everyone. They can be due to and complicated by: complex genetic factors; family patterns; depression or other mental illnesses; anxiety; blocked emotions – especially anger and isolation; perceptual challenges; memory habits; focusing and concentrating challenges; lack of listening training; prolonged stress; mental patterns resulting from accidents and abuses of all kinds; post traumatic syndrome; exposure to environmental pollutants; nutritional imbalances; poor hygiene; and unresolved physical difficulties.

Can’t Remember Much, Despite No Major Challenges Reported Through Medical Examination And Audiometer Tests:

Get a medical and psychological evaluation. Pick practitioners who are familiar with the practices listed below. Without help, difficulty listening can cause difficulties living and learning. Can make speaking and reading very challenging. It can create frustrating social challenges through the resulting inability to respond to directions, commands, directions, and social cues.

Can’t Follow Directions:

Without help, listening challenges can negatively affect success in living and learning, even into adulthood. They can also produce academic challenges. Directions, instructions and warnings can be missed.

Does Not Pay Attention:

Without help, this can become habitual. Children can learn how to not listen. They miss much learning by doing this. This challenge can also be due to, and complicated by, a combination of factors including: being preoccupied with painful thoughts and memories, resisting authority, choosing to be isolated, seeking negative attention, family patterns of not paying attention, a lack of training.

Does Not Remember:

Without help, this can make much learning extremely difficult and can reduce self-esteem. This can lead other people to treat the child as not intelligent. This can also be due to a combination of factors including: blockages in the middle ear created by traumas and accidents to the head, neck, spine and pelvis.

Hears Some Things And Not Others, Blocked Ears, Lack of Focus:

Put your hands over your ears when someone is talking and then every so often take you hands off and then put them back on. This on-again-off-again hearing is what some children experience. It makes living and learning impossibly frustrating. Following directions becomes extremely difficult. Everything becomes confused. This challenge is often associated with frequent ear and eye infections. It can also be caused by and complicated by a combination of factors including: injuries to the head, spine and pelvis, and vision difficulties.

Needs Constant Reminding:

This nuisance can drive adults crazy which can create tension for the child. It can become habitual. It can also create an idea within the child of a lack of intelligence. Having this habit can lower self-confidence. Can also be due to and complicated by a number of factors including: attention seeking, controlling adults, needing some control in the world, family patterns, physiological challenges, unresolved emotional difficulties.
