Please register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 524 7074 FREE SEMINAR hearing skills for sound learning 1 in 20 children may have an auditory processing disorder Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) is a seriously under- recognised hearing problem that is an underlying cause of learning diffculties in thousands of New Zealand children. APD is not detected by standard hearing tests, but it can be diagnosed and it can be treated. A new specialist clinic for children with APD, SoundSkills, has been established in The Parenting Place in Greenlane. SoundSkills expert team of audiologists, speech- language therapist and education adviser provide specialised testing and treatment programmes. They also hold free seminars for parents to learn more about APD. Soundskills Audiologist Dr Bill Keith says APD affects an estimated 5% of children and most go undiagnosed. APD often shows up as a learning problem and causes under-achievement because these children are missing out on vital information. The problem lies in the hearing pathways and centres in the brain. Children may be unable to extract or retain the message that they need to from spoken information, especially if there is background noise. APD requires specialised testing and individualisedtreatment. But, says Dr Keith, there is good evidence for the effectiveness of a number of treatments.

A zumba party to fight cancer By CATHERINE HEALY Zumba party: Rachel Clemow, Tirita Heke and Toni Morris are putting on a zumba party to fundraise for the Cancer Society. Photo: CATHERINE HEALY Tirita Heke has no qualms about asking for help with a good cause. As well as being a new mum, Tirita's been putting her time while on maternity leave into organising a fundraiser for the Cancer Society. In 2008 my sister was diagnosed with pancre- atic cancer. She died in 2009,'' Tirita says. Her sister Carol Samson lived in Helensville. The Glendene resident came up with the idea of hosting a giant zumba party at Trusts Stadium. She started asking zumba instructors if they'd be prepared to vol- unteer their time. Rachel Clemow is one of the six who said yes. She team-teaches zumba at the Hobsonville Com- munity Hall with Toni Morris. Rachel says zumba is something anyone can do. For people who feel they're unfit and over- weight, zumba is great. It gives you confidence and makes you feel good about yourself. You don't have to be co-ordinated, you don't have to know the moves and you don't have to be fit. It's great fun and suits people who don't like the gym,'' Rachel says. Rachel, Toni and Tirita's co-organiser Anna Maxwell have all had family and friends affected by cancer. At the zumba party on Saturday six instructors will provide 90 minutes of high energy moves. The event begins at 5.30pm with a half-hour zumba session for chil- dren. The adults session begins at 6pm and will run until 7.30pm. Tirita says people can take a break when they need to, and should bring along a towel and water bottle. Zumba Fundraiser Party, Saturday, 5.30pm, Trusts Stadium, Central Park Drive, Henderson, adults $15, students and seniors $10, children $5. Adult spectators for the children's session, gold coin donation. Tickets on the door, cash only. All proceeds to the Cancer Society. Call Tirita on 021-031-9733.
