Therapy for Auditory Processing Disorder: A Parent's Viewpoint

A kind email out of the blue:

I greatly appreciated Collin's Mom email that shared how well her son is doing in his school. I am thankful that I was a part of his middle school years and a stepping-stone to his success. 

So often, therapy for auditory processing gets a bad rap.
I think it is because Audiologists/SLPs write goals and spend most of the therapy time working on compensatory skills rather than building up and developing auditory skills where the problem originates. Vision is not a good substitute for hearing in any context.
