I Get It! I Get It! How John Figures It Out, is about a boy's triumph over Auditory Processing Disorder from a child's point of view. Colorful illustrations bring to life John's journey from confusion to understanding. John encounters difficult situations at home and in school. He loses faith in himself and feels overwhelmed, frustrated and dumb. The adults in his life think he is inattentive and not trying hard enough. Children with Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) find the world a confusing, challenging place. Although they do not have a hearing loss, they often mishear and misinterpret directions they receive verbally. With the help of his parents, teachers and speech therapists John learns that he is not dumb but a smart boy who has an Auditory Processing Disorder. At the end of the story John figures it out, regains his self esteem and is very happy.

This book will help children who are struggling with an Auditory Processing Disorder as well as Learning Disabilities or Attention Deficit Disorder. It teaches valuable life tools in a child friendly way. I Get It! I Get It! How John Figures It Out will help children understand why they feel confused, upset and why they just don't get it. Children with APD will see that just like John they too can be successful and happy.

The Glossary of Terms, Ways You Can Help Your Child At Home And At School, and a list of Resources included in the back of the book provide valuable information for anyone who has APD, ADD or a Learning Disability.

I Get It! I Get It! will inspire children whether they are 4 or 14. The story will help them gain confidence and understanding as they see John figure it out. Audiologists, speech therapists and special education teachers will want to recommend this book to families.
