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.

By GEORGE GARDNER Anne Stanimiroff and Colin Sayles are cele- brating the good oil'' just days before the Wai- heke Olive Festival opens. The pair offered up their property at Rangi- houa Estate to host the Jassy Dean Trust plant sale fundraiser and the garden safari's 10th anniversary celebration last weekend. They are now gearing up for the annual two- day olive festival this Saturday and Sunday. But their busy sched- ule has not got them down and the couple paused for breath to cele- brate their success of four medals and a best in class at the New Zealand gourmet oil competition in which Waiheke extra virgin olive oils featured favourably. Gold medals were awarded to only eight extra virgin olive oils around the country and three of them were from the island. They went to Man O'War, Rangihoua Estate Koroneiki and Rangihoua Estate Pic- ual, which also scored the award for best extra virgin olive oil -- intense. Azzuro Groves' Tuscan Blend picked up one of only three silver medals for extra virgin olive oil and Rangihoua also walked away with two bronze medals -- for its Waiheke Blend and Frantoio Blend. Rangihoua Estate was the first olive grove in the North Island to pro- duce olive oil in 1997 and now exports to Japan and the United States. Anne and Colin say they are stoked'' with the latest awards. We're very proud of what we've achieved,'' they say. But we're also proud of all the Waiheke growers and the fantas- tic extra virgin olive oil they are producing.'' The Waiheke Olive Festival runs from 11am to 4pm at Rangihoua Estate on November 20 and 21.
