“The author does a decent job describing Auditory Processing Disorder, and the little vignettes added by Rosie O'Donnell are touching. But Heymann fails to deliver on the promise of telling parents what to do about it.
Early on she informs us that APD can't be diagnosed before the age of seven or so. Then the last half of the book covers child development and activities to do with your infant to five-year-old. This is information that can be found in hundreds of child development books already, and is of no added value to a parent who has a child with a diagnosis of APD.
She touches only briefly on what to do in school settings. She mentions the importance of meeting with teachers, but doesn't discuss the Americans with Disabilities Act or the importance of having a 504 plan in place.
