Description

Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) is a debilitating neurological condition in which the brain is unable to effectively process sounds and speech. An estimated 5 - 10% of children are affected uniquely. APD can have a significant impact on all aspects of lifelong communication.

This authoritative guide includes advice on how to identify, diagnose and support the condition in children, teenagers and adults. It provides everyday strategies based on 20 years of research to try at home, at school and at work. This book aims to help families, teachers and other professionals to understand and support those living with this complex invisible disability. Containing supportive case studies, the book addresses a range of prevalent issues, including relationships, self-esteem, confidence and mental health, making this a comprehensive guide for all things APD.

Reviews

'Shockingly, APD is an almost 'unheard' of condition, however it is very common and often exists with other conditions/disorders. If you are a parent or adult with any concerns about yours or your child's learning or other difficulties and the causes, this book is well worth reading.'
- Laura Davis, SEN advocate and parent of a teenager with a diagnosis of APD and multiple other diagnoses.
