Welcome! | Auditory Processing Disorder | Scoop.it

This is a clearing-house of information on Auditory Processing Disorder.   While every endeavour is made to ensure appropriate and correct information only is included here, please note that the articles are scooped from a variety of sources on the web - and this is a learning process for me as well.  If there is anything incorrect on here, please let me know - and feel free to suggest other resources that should be listed here.

 

Some of these resources may be associated with services and programs for sale.  While I will endeavour not to include advertising per se, I will include resources provided from for-profit providers if they are worthwhile.  I am not associated with any of the for-profit or free services that you may find through this site.

 

There are also a number of peer-reviewed articles available online for a price per view.  I have not included these here, but suggest if you are interested you search scholar.google.com

 

I hope this site is of use to you.

ListenLoveLearn Blog-Creating a Better Listening Environment for Your Kids

ListenLoveLearn Blog-Creating a Better Listening Environment for Your Kids | Auditory Processing Disorder | Scoop.it

For four of our five senses, we have a variety of ways to “turn them off” – closing our eyes to block too much light, covering our noses to block an unpleasant smell, avoiding foods we don’t like the taste of, and selecting clothes that don’t make us itchy. But for our ears, turning-off sounds is not as easy. There are always shifting overlaps of conversations, music and natural sounds that we encounter throughout the day. For adults, the constant simulation of sounds can be annoying, overtaxing and exhausting at times. For children, it can be simply overwhelming. Children with APD lack the skills and experiences necessary to actively seek clarity and quiet, eliminate conflicting sound sources or moving to a less chaotic auditory situation.

 

So how can we create a better listening environment for kids with APD?
