Making Lemonade Out of Lemons!

Congratulations to one of our favorite patients, Julian, for completing the CAPDOTS program. The program is a listening program that directly targets deficits in Central Auditory Processing. Julian set forth with a goal to use the program each day for 30-40 minutes, and complete the program in under 3 months. Julian told us that the program was very hard, and he had to try his hardest to get through all the lessons. All his hard work paid off with a surprise Lemonade Party to celebrate his two months of intensive practice. Congratulations to Julian, and his family, on meeting your goal!
