Auditory Processing Disorder

Letter of Thanks

To The Bega Valley Child & Family Network,

I would like to extend my thanks to FNSW for their funding of the recent workshop on Auditory Processing Disorder, held at Merimbula Public school on 21 and 22 May. The workshop was a huge success with almost 60 participants, all professionals working with children who will now be able to take what they have learned to their work place and implement it. This will help children with difficulties in listening, remembering, and understanding, to thrive at pre-school and school and enable them to develop to their full potential. The presenter was Associate Professor Mridula Sharma from Macquarie University.  

Thank you again for your support,
Yours Sincerely,

Dr Helga Humbert,PhD

Speech Pathologist        Follow the link to coverage from The Merimbula News Weekly
