Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings
||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 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
