Master of Science

Auditory processing disorder (APD) is a learning disability that affects an estimated 2-3% of children. These children often have difficulty storing, locating and retrieving information from reading and conversation. Unfortunately, they are frequently undiagnosed. When faced with these students, classroom teachers are unfamiliar with best practices and strategies of helping these students succeed in mainstream school environments. In this project, I demystify auditory processing problems for teachers and arm them with the information and strategies to best teach their APD students. Qualitative research methods are used, with a purposeful sampling of speech/language pathologists, educational therapists and school psychologists who work one-on-one with children diagnosed with APD.
