Editorial Reviews

Review

"As a parent, nothing is more painful than to get a diagnosis that something is wrong with your child. No matter what the issue – auditory processing disorder, hearing impairment, or simple listening challenges – Lois Heymann’s advice is both a great comfort and a practical roadmap to help children reach their potential. As a parent who personally benefitted from Lois's therapy sessions, I highly recommend this book for all families traveling down this road." —Lee Woodruff, author, Perfectly Imperfect

 
"With good listening comes understanding. When a child doesn't seem to be able to listen well, it's critical that parents get involved and nurture his or her listening skills. The Sound of Hope will provide you with great ideas and simple strategies to help them build up that ‘muscle.’" —Jo Frost, SuperNanny, and author of Ask SuperNanny: What Every Parent Wants to Know

"Although this wonderfully practical, sensible, and accessible book targets parents raising children with auditory processing disorders, I encourage every parent to read it. Who doesn’t need tips on how to help children listen? Heymann’s suggestions are so practical and her thoughtful explanation of how each child is unique is brilliant. I underlined feverishly as I read this book, eager to pass along the advice to the many parents I know who want to help their children develop confidence and competence and become people who look forward to learning, socializing, and exploring."—Dale Atkins, Ph.D., author of Sanity Savers

This is a good first book if your child has already been diagnosed with APD. All her ideas for helping with APD deal with children ages 6 and under (rhymes, songs, etc). She also points out that APD can't be diagnosed before age 7. Rosie O'Donnel's description of the problem is the best part of the book. The author totally ignores the major treatments for APD--the computer based programs Earobics [...] for $70 and Fast4Word ($1000). Her ideas might work if the child is diagnosed early (but it can't be diagnosed before age 7 according to the author). Nursery rhymes will not help an older child. This is a simple to read book that describes how a child learns to use language. It does NOT give information about how to treat or how to accommodate someone with APD.

As a veteran elementary school principal, I have witnessed the frustration felt by children diagnosed with Auditory Processing Disorder, their parents' concerns, as well as the helplessness felt by their classroom teachers who have difficulty understanding and addressing the disorder.
Lois Heymann's book speaks to these issues in language that is clear and easy to understand. Both she and Rosie provide the reader with information and vignettes built upon first hand experiences and Ms. Heymann's expertise as a higly respected speech pathologist/auditory therapist. The Sound of Hope offers proven strategies to support learning and understanding,advice and suggestions for parents (and educators), as well as a myriad of resources to explore.
Ihis book is a welcome addition to my school's professional library.

I looked forward to this book coming out. My daughter, who is now 17, was diagnosed in 6th grade with APD. Through the years I have had to FIGHT for the small accommodations she was given. I have paid countless tutors to help her get through school. I have never shown her her scores from her evaluations, because I think they would have hurt her.

I wish this book had gone into how to get the school system to give your child the help they need. The children who fall in the grey area are the ones that are lost. Unfortunately, the book did not help. I really feel the kids with APD are those that are left behind.

This is the most wonderful book. It helps me talk meaningfully about the challenges my child faces. I am so grateful for this book. Reading through the information I see my son and feel like now I can do something to help him face his challenges and overcome them... Because I understand CAPD and what his day is like. I can also relate consequences of certain environments to his teachers, coaches, and friends. Thank you for giving me hope. You have no idea how much this book has meant to me and my son.

My son won't be 7 for 11 more months... So, there is no formal diagnosis. But, this is the first book I've read that fits. The strategies and information in this book will help him now. The methods are good... For every child. But, for my son knowing how to impact him in a positive way is so critical. This book will help me be my son's Champion... Not his Defender. He can build confidence in his listening skills and ability to communicate. The difference in him has been affirming. He knows that I believe him and I'm starting to understand. I have hope... But, most importantly so does he!!!

I am so grateful for this book. I am grateful for Rosie to tell Blake's story troubles and triumphs throughout this book. My son had otitis effusions in his ears for a long time. I didn't really notice it until his speech was somewhat delayed. He never had ear infections. It has been a journey just to correct this, but now I am questioning a possible form of APD. He does well on many levels but I am not sure he gets language and how to use it all the time. He is about to enter school, and APD can't be fully diagnosed until a later age. I am not going to wait until then before trying to figure out how I might help him. This book has really given me some hands on steps that I can work with my son
to develop better listening skills even if he turns out not to have APD. This book was easy to understand but very detailed. I thought the author did a excellant job explaining APD so that teachers and other care providers can get it. I am now preparing to enter my son in 4K school and this book will really help me to ffigure out how to best help him. I highly recommend this book to all parents, teachers, and school administration.

I would also recommend the mislabeled child. This book was also a lifesaver for me. Read it!!

If you are struggling with issues regarding your child, this book will lead you down the right path to all the concerns and questions you keep asking yourself over and over again.
It will enable you to cope with the issues while putting all the pieces together so that your child can become successful and enriched adults.
Lois Heymann is a brilliant leader and expert who has ( as Rosie O'Donnell stated ) "Saved the Lives of So Many Children"
This is true.
Our family has personally benefited from Lois Heymann & I can assure you that this will be a life altering book for you and your family.
We are all so fortunate to have Lois's words, wisdom and experience to learn from.
It is a blessing for all of our children.
