Did you ever learn to lip read with APD?

Yes, I was naturally lip reading at a very young age.

It was discovered by accident as I was getting language therapy help for my Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) at Jawanio (in New York). Dr. Bollard was reading instructions from her clip board and slowly lifted it up, placing it in front of her mouth. As soon as she did, I stopped understanding what she was saying. When she lowered the clip board from in front of her mouth, I regained understanding. She quickly realized that I was instinctively lip reading to help me understand language and correctly interpret sounds and syllables.
