Early signs of speech, language, auditory processing difficulties can lead to reading and writing problems once kids enter school. Parents whose children are already in school and struggling with reading can also look back to see if early signs were present. An educational therapist or licensed speech/language pathologist can help parents identify and address these 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.”



Does your child: Often display impulsive or inattentive behavior? Have difficulty organizing and expressing ideas verbally? Struggle with reading and writing? View the world in new, creative ways? Suffer from digestive problems, headaches, allergies, or other chronic health conditions? Show more frustration and moodiness with school, friendships, and life in general?
