We at Vocalsaints recently met Dr Bill Keith, director of SoundSkills. Bill is very knowledgeable in the field of Auditory Processing Disorder (APD), a condition we are beginning to notice more often with some of our younger clients. 

After day of learning more about the latest theory and treatments for APD, we will be integrating them into the range of treatments we offer.

Perhaps we need to look at similar institutes in our country?

When you think of animals being used in therapy, you probably think of dogs. But what about pigs? 

Unlikely as it may seem, Buttercup the pot-bellied pig is a hit with special-needs children!

Owner and speech therapist Lois Brady thinks it's her unique appearance and calm demeanor. What do you think?
