Auditory Processing Disorder

Characteristics of Students with APD in the Classroom

"Auditory processing is a term used to describe what happens when your brain recognizes and interprets the sounds around you. Children with APD often do not recognize subtle differences between sounds in words, even though the sounds themselves are loud and clear."

How Gow Levels the Playing Field for Students with APD

Similar to CAPD, Gow understands that students with Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) are going to need more time to process information as well as give their feedback. Gow allows untimed tests for students with APD as well as customized homework so that all students can succeed. Gow focuses more on quality of work verses quantity of homework given.
