"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

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 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.
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!!
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.
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.
