Can I tell you about Auditory Processing Disorder?

A Guide for Friends, Family and Professionals


Alyson Mountjoy, illustrated by Kelly Davies

Part of the 'Can I Tell You About....?' series

Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) affects 3-5% of school children, but what exactly is it? This friendly guide tells readers about the causes, symptoms and effects, and shows how to get help at home and at school, as well as developing self-help and advocacy skills. Ideal for children aged 7+, friends, family, and those working with them.
 

Description

In this friendly guide, a girl called Amy tells all about her Auditory Processing Disorder (APD). Together with her friend Tom and sister Lucy, Amy explains how every child with APD is affected in unique ways, and how to get help if you have APD.

This illustrated guide is ideal for helping children aged 7+ with APD to understand the condition, while increasing their self-esteem and confidence. Explaining about causes, symptoms, diagnosis and comorbidity in child-friendly terms, it dispels myths and encourages children to self-advocate and seek help at home and at school. It is also an excellent starting point for parents, teachers and other professionals wishing to tailor support to the type and severity of a child's APD, and includes a helpful list of recommended sources for additional support.


Reviews

'Alyson Mountjoy has created a fabulous resource. It will help prevent the kinds of social and emotional damage that is so often caused by ill-informed self-critical judgements that are made by those with APD about themselves, and/or made by others about them.'
- Dr Damien Howard, Psychologist

'This excellent book is not only useful for children with auditory processing disorder (APD) and their friends and families, who need to understand APD, it is also recommended reading for the professional who needs this insight of APD from the affected child's perspective.'
- Professor Doris-Eva Bamiou MD MSc FRCP PhD, Professor in Neuroaudiology
