Auditory Processing Series Booklets – by Lesley Tan

Parents and teachers can gain valuable new insights into children's learning and behaviour from reading these booklets. They provide a clear and easy-to-read account of Auditory Processing (AP) and its importance for understanding Learning Difficulty, especially reading problems. The basis of the problems is explained, leading to strategies that help children to learn better. Thus the methods that will improve school achievement become clear.

Inadequate Auditory Processing is one of the commonest factors involved in communication/language problems, but it is often not recognised. The effects can be varied and far-reaching. The ability to communicate well with language is critical for children's self-esteem. An understanding of these problems leads to better relationships between parents and children, and more effective classroom management in school.

These booklets have been written by Lesley Tan, who established Listening Works in 2002.  Lesley is an experienced audiologist and educator, with expertise in the relationship between Auditory Processing and listening problems.

The printed booklets are available through Listening Works or by mail-order from Lesley Tan. They can be purchased individually; or buy the set of 4 booklets for $32.00 per set (includes postage within Australia).

Parents say:

“We have experienced a real break-through with our daughter, after learning about auditory processing from these booklets.”
“I read the two little books, Behaviour, Communication & Auditory Processing and Auditory Processing at Home, and found them a goldmine – so much useful information in these little books.”
“Our son was clearly in need of help, but no-one seemed to know how to help him. Now he is really making progress.”

Teachers report:

“The advice is practical and makes sense.”
Auditory Processing at School has opened my eyes to things that were right there in front of me, but which I could not see before.”
“These books gave me the strategies I needed for some of my pupils. I now find that my whole class is benefiting because I have made some changes.”
“I work with children who are developmentally delayed. They are over 6 years old, but I found that Auditory Processing and the Under Sixes gave me new approaches for them. I can see benefits already.”
