That frequently-asked question required the in-depth response that became this book.
It takes the reader behind the clinician’s door for vicarious participation in the
broad range of interventions employed– both academic/vocational and social/emotional.
The case chosen for this challenge involves 17-year-old Nora because of the complexity
of her auditory processing disorder and its wide-ranging ramifications on her life.
Too often, the link between emotions and learning goes unrecognized. Nora’s story
brings that link to life in a therapeutic journey. It clarifies the ways in which
an educational therapist addresses those dual needs. As it discloses the problems,
their causes, and the emotional toll that had to be considered, the reader becomes
partner in the development of an effective educational/therapeutic plan. The conclusion
of the book provides Nora’s reaction to her own story and the outcome of those years
