East Meadow Hearing and Speech Center
Does your child have difficulty paying attention; poor listening, reading or learning skills; or other developmental delays? Auditory processing disorder (APD) is a neurological deficit affecting how the brain processes speech and language. APD is a complex problem that can affect the way a child or individual receives, understands, and uses auditory information. School-aged children with auditory processing weaknesses are unable to process information they hear the same way others can because they experience a lack of coordination between the ear and brain. East Meadow Hearing and Speech Center was founded in 1989 by Shelley Francis, M.S., F.A.A.A., who since 1992 has devoted the practice to understanding, diagnosing, and helping children with auditory processing weaknesses. East Meadow Hearing and Speech Center considers auditory processing weaknesses a piece of the puzzle causing learning problems and other developmental delays that, according to research, can include attention deficit disorder (ADD), dyslexia, apraxia, and autism. East Meadow Hearing and Speech Center believes their daily listening diet can not only help strengthen auditory processing weaknesses, but also help improve a host of learning problems and developmental delays.
