Auditory Processing Disorder Therapy


Getting Started with Auditory Processing Disorder Therapy

Auditory processing disorder (APD) may occur as part of your child's cognitive development. It primary impacts the way that they can hear and understand everyday spoken language. Children with APD, may often be misdiagnosed with a hearing disorder, but this is not the case since they would usually produce normal results in a hearing test.

At Speechaim we take a very tailored approach to our lessons to ensure that your child is properly diagnosed and in fact has auditory processing disorder.


Signs of Auditory Processing Disorder

The signs of auditory processing disorder can be observed in your child in a few ways. These include:

  • Lack of understanding speech in noisy situations: Your child's ability to understand everyday speech, particularly in noisy situations may be limited. Such situations include background noise, multiple people speaking and when a person is speaking quickly. This can lead to issues regarding reading and writing, as well as issues with their own speech.

  • Lack of understanding or enjoying music: Your child may not understand the lyrics of many songs, or may not like music at all.

  • Lack of ability to distinguish similar sounds: For example, your child may misunderstand shoulder and soldier or two other words that sound similar but have completely different meanings.

Speech Therapy Sessions for Auditory Processing Disorder

At Speechaim, in order to determine whether or not your child has APD, we conduct a number of tailored sessions to determine the symptoms. These tests may include:

  • Tests to check your child's ability to hear speech with different levels of background noise,
  • Tests to detect subtle changes in sound,
  • Speech and language assessments,
  • Cognitive assessments that test the way in which your child thinks.

Once we determine that your child has symptoms that are consistent with APD, we can begin to work alongside you to develop the most appropriate therapy sessions both at home, at play, and during our sessions.

Our sessions will usually involve a form of auditory training, in which your child will engage in a variety of activities, designed to help their brain analyze sounds. The activities that we use will be tailored to meet your child's needs and will be designed to be as effective as possible. Our staff are here to help you and your child. Whether it be at home, school or therapy sessions, we can help.
