"very informative. good article
"I find it so frustrating that the school system is so backwards. Rather
than being proactive they will wait for my 8 year old to fail. How
frustrating is it too that because we do not qualify for food stamps, our
daughter is not eligable even for supplemental help in NJ. ( NO Child Left
Behind Act) I have been basically ignored by the Child Study team and her
teachers. Now I feel that they are just pushing her through the system.
She gets work back littered with comments and exclamation points, yet i am
told she is passing. My daughter comes home and tells me she feels
stupid and that the only thing she is good at is spelling, because she can
memorize it. It's $125.00 a week for speech thearpy which she desperatly
needs. My child needs help, I pay taxes, help her!
"Check out neurofeedback. Amazing things are happening for kids with ALL
types of learning disorders, including auditory processing, due to
advances in this area. Especially if your child has auditory processing
AND another difficulty such as ADHD. We have seen amazing results without
drugs and is completely non-invasive. I feel a real need to tell everyone
because of the many misdiagnosis, and years of frustration. We've finally
found help to 'cure' these issues. Best of luck to all the parents out
there. You are not alone. "
"Great article! May I mention the Able Kids Foundation in Fort Collins,
Colorado and their Central Auditory Processing Center that deals with
assistance for individuals with APD, especially children.
"This is a reply to Nancy Talcott.
I have a story for you. Feel free to email me "
"We are looking to speak to parents of children who have CAPD---whose
children are aware that they have it (ages 7-14) and how it impacts their
Emmy winning filmmaking team working on major cable television network
sensitive, non-exploitative documentary on children with learning
differences. NO CHILD MAY PARTICIPATE WITHOUT WRITTEN PARENTAL CONSENT.
For more information please contact LDFILM@AOL.COM"
"I'm working on a documentary on children (7-12) with learning differences
and am looking for children with auditory processing disorders (apart from
those that are often associated with autism)
I would love to speak with anyone (and provide the necessary
documentation, etc) who has a child or can put me in touch with a family
who has a child who fits this profile. This is a film about children, for
children, and by children meant to shatter myths about LDs and empower
those who participate in it.
"My 10 year old son has just been diagnosed with APD. Now I know why he
has such a hard time reading. I need help!! I would like to hear from
other parents as to how they have helped there child with this disorder.
What can I do to help my son better understand his disorder? Other than
just read, read and read, to help him improve his reading skills, who can
I turn to to help him learn how to read with his disability? His will be
enrolled in RSP at his school, but what can I do to help him at home to
catch up with his class? Any advise will be appreciated. Thank-you!!"
"The things I need to learn about!"
"Great article! I found it to be very insightful. There is an integrated
movement/listening option available, as well. Check out
"Our son was recently diagnosed with Auditory Processing Disorder, but the
schools won't do anything. He's just turned 7, and they say he is too
young and doesn't have the attention span to do Fast ForWord. Aren't the
schools suppose to do something? I found this site (CAPD Support
) that lists a lot of
therapies, but the school is saying they are unproven and therefore won't
do them. Where can I go to find out what the guidelines are for school
"i have apd and i find this really intresting. When my mum and dad told me
what i had i didnt understand but this has made it alot cleare to me .
"To whom it may concern:
My daughter has been diagnosed with auditory processing disorder. We have
been adised to see a therapist in the Atlanta area for a cost of $500 per
month. Are there any other resources you could recommend? Are there other
resources we could use in the Atlanta area? Any help would be appreciated!
"Please consider adding the book 'Don't You Get It? Living With Auditory Learning Disabilities' to your list of resources. The book describes what and APD is, how to get tested for it, as well as treatments. The book also has personal accounts of people who have lived with the disorder and have successful careers despite their APD. You can view the book at www.psychdocinfo.com"
"My son was diagnosed with apd at the end of kindergarten. After years of advocating for him, I had myself tested and was diagnosed with apd in my 40's. I have since co-authored a book with a nationally known audiologist by the name of Jay Lucker. The title of the book is 'Don't You Get It? Living With Auditory Learning Disabilities.' It goes over what an apd is, how to test for it, how to treat it, as well as first hand accounts of people who have lived with it. The book is available at www.psychdocinfo.com"
"I've read through 5 or 6 articles tonight in preparation for a technology-assistance evaluation meeting for my daughter who is dylexsic and has auditory processing disorder. All of them were spot on and, I believe, will equip me well for my meeting. I've printed out a couple of them as reference sources for my meeting.
Thank you for making it so easy to find resources and for formatting them in a fashion that makes them easy to read and print."
