Last year I was finally able to get my son tested for an Auditory Processing Disorder(APD for short). I couldn't have this test done privately due to the fact that only a few Audiologists do it and they didn't take our insurance. Anyways I had to really push the school my son went to to get it done. So here is the thing the Audiologist said that my son didn't have an APD. But he couldn't tell me why my son had the problems that led me to believe he did have an APD. Then my sons new Speech Therapist told me she thought he did have an APD and that all the classroom accommodations the schools Audiologist suggested were the same they would have for kids with APD's. The thing is that the Speech Therapist before her thought he had an APD too and now that he is seeing a new Speech Therapist she said the same and when I asked she said that is why she won't work for the school district. So I wonder what you guys think ?

Well if the school audiologist suggested all the accommodations that would be suggested for a kid with APD it sounds like they are trying to avoid labling him but want to give him the services he needs. That actually sounds like a good thing to me. Why do you need the lable if you can get the services? I think he did you a favor.
