Publisher's Summary

APD has been called the auditory equivalent of dyslexia, and its debilitating effects cross all ages, genders, and races. APD can cause children to fail in school and adults to suffer socially and in their careers, but until now, there has been little information available.   

Written by Dr. Teri James Bellis, one of the world's foremost authorities on APD, this is the first book on the subject that is completely accessible to the public. Through helpful case studies, you'll finally discover the answers you need, as well as proven strategies for living with APD. Comprehensive and powerfully prescriptive, this book contains vital information for anyone who suffers from this serious disorder.   

When the Brain Can't Hear gives you all the latest information:  

  • What is APD? 
  • Diagnosis and testing  
  • Living successfully with APD  
  • And more

This book helps me understand myself

For the first time, I have more compassion towards my educators. I have been doing some serious reflection lately as I have noticed extreme difficulties in my life and I went back to therapy to investigate myself. I am pursuing the long process of official diagnostic testing as I began noticing similarities and repeating patterns that I can no longer deny. I found it necessary to track down my school records with hopes that it would provide some answers regarding why I was in special education throughout my schooling. I found a stack of records going back to Pre-K and beyond that detailed what they described as APD or CAPD. This June was the first time I read the words "Auditory Processing Disorder" in my records. I began a deep dive. It wasn't long before I was searching on Audible for a book to listen to about it (because I process audiobooks better than reading). PERFECT TIMING. The book had just been brought to the Audible platform. I lucked out. I really wish that my parents read this while I was growing up and had a better understanding about why I am the way I am. Thank you for writing this book! I recommend it to others who need to educate themselves on Auditory Processing Disorder. It often falls under the umbrella of a broader diagnosis. For me, it confirms a piece of the larger puzzle I am putting together. For the first time, I feel validated and hate myself less.

aggravating in all the wrong ways

I've had audio books with plenty of subheadings before. This book goes on and on and on about qualifying statements and what she's not talking about. I have APD and listening to this has been nothing short of incredibly infuriating. I'm sure the pacing is fine for a print book, but this attacks my brain in ways I don't need when I'm driving or looking to listen while doing another task.
As someone who has had APD since childhood, I implore you not to buy this audio book.
