Treatment for auditory processing disorder in children


Treatment for auditory processing disorder in children

The Auditory Memory areas of our brains allow children to notice and remember what they hear.  If there is a problem with this area they willl forget what they are told to do, struggle to learn new vocabulary, and/or find it hard to put their thoughts into words.  Difficulties with auditory memory will affect a child'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 child 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 (such as the days of the week).
