What is Auditory Processing Disorder and what can you do about it?
Auditory Processing is what our brains do with what our ears hear.
It’s hard for children with Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) to distinguish speech sounds when there is background noise.They find it difficult to focus, they get frustrated, their schoolwork suffers and they get tired from trying to listen.
APD is estimated to affect around 5% of the population.
The good news is brains can be “rewired”!
People with APD can be helped by the Fast ForWord program. Its digitally 'stretched' sounds give the brain more time to process speech sounds (phonemes). As the student's auditory processing ability improves, Fast ForWord progressively speeds up the sounds to the pace of natural speech.
