The impact that auditory processing disorder can have on a child reaches from their ability to read to their social interactions with others. How often do you have a child ask you to repeat something that you’ve said, have you thought that a child wasn’t really listening, or that a child gives you an answer that is completely off topic? We’ve probably all experienced this and some children have difficulties processing incoming information more so than others. Attend this learning event to discover the skills involved in auditory processing, describe the possible indicators of auditory processing disorder, participate in a simulation to create your own definition, and identify classroom accommodations for children with auditory processing difficulties.
