Managing the condition
While there is no cure for APD, changes to learning styles can ease your child’s difficulties. Your Audiologist may also suggest some of the following options:
Learning strategies in the classroom
Compensatory strategies for daily life
Assistive listening devices to assist in the classroom
Listening exercises or computer software programs to improve the child’s auditory processing skills
Further assessment and/or therapy with other professionals, where required. This may include a speech-language pathologist, educational psychologist, occupational therapist or paediatrician.
