What is Auditory Processing Disorder?
Auditory Processing is what our brains do with what our ears hear.
Speech and language delays are the most common early external signs of an auditory processing disorders in children.
Dyslexia and auditory processing disorder symptoms often occur together.
Poor Listening Skills
Are you constantly repeating instructions for your child? Do you feel that your child “tunes out” or is in a “world of their own”? Is your child falling behind his or her peers academically?
Difficulties with Learning
Frustrations in the Classroom
Children get distracted by background noise, cannot listen accurately and speedily to comprehend and follow speech. Phonemic awareness, phonics and following directions hinder progress in the classroom.
Auditory Processing Disorder can often be confused with behaviour problems, adjustment difficulties, and immaturity. Neuron Learning's Fast ForWord Home’s reading intervention program targets these areas directly with strategies, exercises and activities that address processing speed and accuracy.
