Blogging, Information & Central Auditory Processing Disorder!


Image

At school we have a child who has caused us nothing but “problems” since he joined us at the age of four.  He has been a continuing source of frustration for us. Every strategy we have tried doesn’t seem to have worked and his parents don’t seem keen for any outside intervention.

While looking through Reader on WordPress I came across the following blog http://chrissyadventures.wordpress.com/2013/05/20/oppositional-defiance-disorder-itssomeone-elses-fault/ I read all three blog posts on the subject and learned a lot but it’s not what I was looking for. However from reading this I then decided to keep looking and I think I have found the answer. Central auditory processing disorder.  

Signs & Symptoms of CAPD

  • Poor listening skills and auditory attention
  • Reduced comfort levels for listening in general
  • Difficulty learning auditorily
  • Problems in the presence of background noise: poor speech recognition, difficulty understanding, and tendency to be distracted
  • Reduced tolerance for loud noises; hypersensitivity to noise in general
  • Difficulty understanding speech when it is muffled, distorted or rapid
  • Slow or delayed responses to verbal stimuli
  • Frequent requests for information to be repeated
  • Auditory integration deficits for sound blending and auditory closure (filling in what is not heard), phonological awareness, and phonics skills
  • Misunderstanding or “mishearing” what is said; often will say “huh?” or “what?”
  • Poor receptive language skills: understanding double and non-literal meanings, puns, and abstractions; understanding salient points in order to take notes efficiently; taking notes and listening at the same time; following auditory directions and recalling what has been heard, especially commands and instructions
  • Poor expressive language skills: getting to the point, finding words, expressing feelings, sequencing events, and organizing thoughts
  • Poor pragmatic language skills: reading the situation and knowing what to say and how to say it; taking turns in communication; beginning or ending a conversation; entering a group play situation; asking questions, making inquiries, and asking for assistance
  • Problems with reading, spelling, and academics in general

I read the above and it hit me like a brick wall this is our little man and it needs looking at. I text his class teacher and they agreed with me, However now we have to prove it and get the help for him that he needs.

Thanks to http://chrissyadventures.wordpress.com it may not have been what I was looking for but boy did it get me thinking and I came up with an answer. The answer is actually the first question that may lead to the end answer our little man needs.

One minute you are casually reading a persons blog and the next minute you have expanded your knowledge and possibly helped someone. What a wonderful use of the internet!
