"Paying Attention to what you are Hearing Requires Good Mental Energy"

"Mental Fatigue Lowers the Brain’s Ability to pay Attention to what is Being Heard"

Our Point of View

Statistically speaking, hearing has 12-14% of the brain capacity at its disposal, while vision has as much as 50-80% of the brain capacity at its command. When a person has auditory processing issues, it is likely that the individual brain is not sleeping well and as a result is functioning with low mental energy reserves. An indvidual that does not sleep well will find itself at a disadvantage coming out of the gate. Add the fact that the senses will be competing for mental energy reserves and you can predict that these brains will pay more attention to seeing than to listening. Hearing is not the problem, instead paying attention to what you are hearing is the issue. Good mental energy will resolve listening deficits.
