Jeanette McKay – Western Australia

“ ... I started looking more closely at auditory processing and how it impacted  on listening, comprehension and reading. I knew this was where the reading process had come unstuck for my son, the fact that he could not process the sounds  of the words.  There was nothing wrong with his ears, he just could not get the information from the hearing mechanism to the brain. It was not till he was nearly 12 that he started Sound Therapy ... after a month one day he said to me, ‘Mum, I can read that word now’. What he was doing was not only seeing the word, he was able to hear the sound in his head and connect the sound with the letters on the page, and that was the beginning of his true reading.”
