Over 80 clinicians, parents, and local educators gathered for Dr. Jeanane Ferre’s Keynote on Understanding The “Process” Of Auditory Processing on Friday, May 18th at EvergreenHealth Auditorium in Kirkland, WA.

Dr. Ferre is a nationally recognized expert in the field of (Central) Auditory Processing Disorders – (C)APD –  in children and adults. She is an adjunct faculty member of Northwestern and Rush Universities. Her pioneering research led to the development of the Bellis-Ferre model for testing and interpretation of (C)APD (the model used at Evergreen Speech & Hearing Clinic). 

Dr. Ferre’s presentation on the evaluation and treatment of (C)APD in children and adults, focused on the subtypes of auditory processing disorder with patient examples from her 35 years of experience.

Poem: Journey of Hope

Happy Better Hearing & Speech Month! Accounts Manager Katie Colburn wrote this piece titled Journey of Hope.

Journey of Hope

A child speaks out

One voice, from a rasp to a whisper

From a stutter to a lisp

A letter or two gone missing

Socially inept, shyness or something more

The spectrum, not the place to be

The journey of hope, it starts right here

 

Reaching out as the change is made

Holding a hand maybe a calming voice

A breakthrough of sorts

The journey has just begun

The transition is on, only time will tell

Just a bit of hope, just a bit of faith

Yes, the journey of hope

It starts right here

 

Quiet times, or so it seems

The sounds of life are all around

From the songbird

To the buzz of a honeybee

From laughter on the playground

To the traffic in the streets

The sound of silence, not the place to be

The journey of hope, it starts right here

 

Reaching out as the change is made

Holding a hand maybe a calming voice

A breakthrough of sorts, the journey has just begun

The transition is on, only time will tell

Just a bit of hope, just a bit of faith

Yes, the journey of hope, it starts right here

Yes, it starts right here
