"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
