My first patient and Beethoven’s testament

My first patient became my first teacher.

A girl of 16 years old was brought to me – recently her condition was close to suicide. Her eyes looked inward, she was in a daze, the words she found with difficulty. The girl put the Lusher test, and, of course, the first color was chosen black.

Listening Testing

We cannot “see” the listening process, we can check it only indirectly – through the presence or absence of skills that are associated with it in one way or another. This checklist offers a catalog of such skills and enables you to independently evaluate the development of listening skills in yourself, your child or your students. It does not have any rating scale. If any of these phenomena are related to you, they may indicate an insufficiently developed listening ability.

The history of development
Knowing these causes is extremely important because it can help you identify and prevent hearing problems in a timely manner:
