Like Sound Through Water: A Mothers Journey Through Auditory Processing Disorder, by Karen J. Foli, Ph.D., is an exhaustively detailed first-person account. If you have been through a similar journey with your child, you’ll recognize more than a few of Foli’s feelings and experiences. In the last chapter, Foli describes different kinds of APD and discusses the cardinal symptoms that should prompt a parent to have a child evaluated. These, along with lists of resources and recommended reading, are the most valuable parts of the book.
