My guest this week is Lois Kam Heymann, MA, CCC-SLP, a Speech-Language Pathologist with over 30 years in the field specializing in diagnosing and treating children with auditory-language deficits; auditory processing disorder, language processing disorder, hearing loss, and listening challenges. To meet the needs of parents, teachers, as well as the students Lois does trainings nationally and internationally. Lois is the founder and director of ListenLoveLearn, a private practice for evaluation and treatment of children with auditory-language issues in Chestnut Ridge, New York, and author of The Sound of Hope: Recognizing, Coping with and Treating Your Child’s Auditory Processing Disorder.

In this episode, Lois and I discuss how auditory deficits and disorders impact children’s academic and social skills both at home and in school. Lois provides parents with a clear understanding of how to recognize possible auditory deficits in their children and how to seek appropriate and effective treatment. Often an auditory processing disorder (APD) coexists with other behavioral, cognitive, or sensory issues making a proper diagnosis all the more important. Children suffering from an APD do not hear sounds in a usual way and typically struggle with reading, writing, spelling, and speech comprehension.
