    Episode highlight:

    “You don’t put APD in a basket and say give me a therapy that’s going to work. You have to figure out which one is going to work specifically for which APD is for you.”

    In this episode, Dr. Fox shares that therapy for APD is not a one size fits all approach. There are various auditory processing disorders, and each therapy addresses a specific issue. The best first step is to get tested.
