Does your teenager have auditory processing disorder?


Does your teenager have auditory processing disorder?

The Auditory Memory areas of our brains allow teenagers to notice and remember what they hear.  If they have a problem in this area they will forget what they have heard. This means they  cannot follow instructions at an age appropriate level, cannot remember new vocabulary and cannot learn effectively in school.  Difficulties with auditory memory will affect a teenager's ability to read, write, spell, do maths and science and learn new vocabulary.  They may be diagnosed as having dyslexia or other learning problem.

Does your teenager have difficulty:

  • remembering oral instructions, 
  • following conversations or lessons 
  • acquiring information through listening
  • putting information into their own words
  • speaking in complete sentences 
  • using internal speech to manage their behaviour
  • following long sentences and/or
  • learning the names of things?
