Planet Hearwell Yaziland was specifically designed to strengthen auditory processing skills in the area of dichotic listening. Dichotic skills relate to the ability to hear using both ears together.
Using words, numbers, letters, and environmental sounds, the user is required to identify what they hear and which ear they hear it in.
In the higher levels, the user will be hearing different sounds presented to each ear at the same time. The gradual increase in difficulty makes this game ideal for both young children and older children/adolescents that struggle with dichotic listening development, the ability to listen in noisy environments, and with auditory attention.
