A New Label on the Block – CAPD

CAPD - Central Auditory Processing Disorder with the Brain Coach.Another label has emerged for individuals that are having learning challenges – it’s CAPD. CAPD stands for Central Auditory Processing Disorder and is also referred to as APD or Auditory Processing Disorder.  There are different aspects of this “disorder” that negatively affect a person’s ability to function fully.  Symptoms include:

  • Difficulties in recognizing and interpreting sounds, especially voice tones
  • Inability to hold sufficient information in sequential order in one’s auditory short-term memory (sequential auditory processing).

This label, like other labels in our educational system, is a symptomatic label.  That means if there are enough symptoms on a checklist, the label is given.  As always in NeuroDevelopment, the question is: what is causing these symptoms to occur? Our society’s practices are the culprit again!  In this episode, Jan Bedell, the Brain Coach, will provide a broader understanding of CAPD and its far-reaching effects.

If you know someone that has trouble following directions, staying on task, reading with a phonics approach, or comprehending what is said and read, this podcast can offer some real answers.  Many times the same symptoms that are associated with CAPD are also experienced by individuals that have or are suspected of having ADD, ADHD, dyslexia and other learning struggles.  This podcast will discuss how low auditory processing presents challenges for every sector of our society.  It will also include ways to improve the inefficiencies found in the symptoms of these labels. By learning how to improve these inefficiencies, you can help your child’s auditory processing improve greatly!

Let’s Talk About Parent-Child Relationships

Listen Now! 

So, Felice wears many hats around here – she is a podcast host, she is a podcast moderator, she interviews brands on her show here … and she is an author/publisher. And, this book was one of those aha moments in her life! You see Felice was teaching a workshop that was packed at the FPEA Conference in Orlando Florida on realizing your dreams of becoming a published author. It was to encourage parents to not only encourage their children’s writing abilities but to help them become published. In the audience was a mother of a mother who was homeschooling (think about it). She approached me after my session and pitched me the book idea… “What would you say if I could tell you how to have your children tell you everything all the time?”

Hmm… well, let’s see four of them tell me way more than I want to know…but I had that ONE hard nut to crack. The silent moody one! Instead of helping this lady (Paula Stevenson) become a published author I gave her and her daughter Sky McNeil (the mom was homeschooling her children and therefore at a homeschool convention) a contract. This show will tell you  how to make the most out of those precious years and help you with those difficult questions.
