Auditory Processing Difficulties (CAPD)
Auditory Processing Disorder can be hard to diagnose. It can often look like an attention related difficulty or even a receptive language impairment. Unaddressed it can become a literacy difficulty and cause serious problems for a child learning in a busy classroom.
Essentially a child with Auditory Processing Disorder has a difficulty processing sound information in the presence of competing noise, with signal distortions, or timing changes. Having a CAPD does not mean you have a receptive and expressive language delay but untreated it could end up that way.
Justine can assist with a differential diagnosis in this area, provide treatment and make appropriate referrals.
I contacted Justine about my 2.5 year old after his nursery raised some concerns about his mouth regularly being open and excess dribbling. Justine took the time to thoroughly understand the issue and the flags that nursery had identified as well as a detailed background of my son's life to date. She then provided us with some very useful advice but concluded we wouldn't benefit from treatment at this stage. I really appreciated her friendly and pragmatic communication and felt reassured after speaking with her that I knew how to help my son. I appreciated the time she invested, especially given it didn't result in any specific work for her. Thank you!
Justine is an amazing therapist, my daughter has been lucky enough to see her in London weekly for Prompt therapy for the past 3 years. My daughters speech has improved so much as a result of her seeing Justine every week. I’m so grateful she gets to see Justine and can’t recommend her enough.
I would recommend working with Justine, she is very kind, very patient and has found the perfect way to make my child understand, thank you so much Justine.
You have been a magician for Tristan!
