Speech and language therapy – Auditory processing disorder
For a child to be able to speak, she should be able to hear properly first. Hearing involves he coordination between the ear and the brain. Some children may not be able to speak properly because they are not able to hear properly. They may process a sound differently from the normal child because the coordination between the ears and the brain may not be happening correctly. A child with APD may have the normal outer and inner ear structure but the processing may be happening differently. Therapy can benefit such children to overcome their handicap and join the mainstream.
