Paperback
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.
