The Listening Lab

TheListeningLab.com is the site that every parent of a child with APD has been waiting for! Shelley Francis founded TheListeningLab.com not only to help parents understand auditory processing disorder, but also to provide them with the tools required to help their children strengthen auditory processing weaknesses and reach their true potential.

Daily Listening Diet

When auditory processing deficits become a piece of the puzzle, a “daily listening diet” can prove quite helpful. In fact, a daily listening diet is a critical element in remediating an auditory processing problem. Therapy administered once or twice a week is effective, but the poor listening habits that return once a child has left the therapeutic environment tend to impede auditory development. The key to successfully treating auditory processing weaknesses is to engage children with fun and motivating listening activities.

Shelley Francis

Shelley Francis is a certified audiologist with a passion for helping children with auditory processing weaknesses, which was inspired by the challenges her brother faced growing up with an undiagnosed learning disability. Shelley’s brother Tom not only suffered challenges and failures growing up in school, but also bouts of depression and fear of failure later in his adult life. In 1992, Shelley helped Tom discover that many of his challenges as an adult were due to an underlying auditory processing problem that had gone unrecognized in childhood and adolescence.
