Auditory Processing


Reading, Writing, ‘Rithmetic— the three “R”s have been around for centuries! But research has found that the ability to read is an underlying skill for the other two “R”s. So what underlies reading? Many skills. However, two additional “R”s, rhythm and rhyme, are at the forefront.



All of us with children are well versed in the challenges of helping our little ones navigate through episodes of frustration or unusual behavior. Tantrums or unexpected actions most always have a cause – and parents who work down the typical checklist of tiredness, hunger, sickness, need of attention, boredom or something similar can usually isolate the culprit that is leading to their behavior.



People with learning disabilities and disorders can learn strategies for coping with their disabilities. Getting help earlier increases the likelihood for success in school and later in life. If learning disabilities remain untreated, a child may begin to feel frustrated with schoolwork, which can lead to low self-esteem, depression, and other problems.



First, what is an auditory processing disorder? The official (and quite technical) definition comes from the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (www.asha.org). For brevity’s sake, let’s just say a good working definition for APD is: “What the brain does with what it hears.”
