AUDITORY PROCESSING DISORDER
For most children, auditory abilities develop with experience and practice. Children who have auditory processing disorder encounter delayed development of auditory abilities. These children often have difficulty following directions, listening in noisy environments and learning from listening.
Some adults have auditory processing disorder throughout life. Others may acquire APD after concussion or other traumatic brain injury.
We perform a full battery of tests to assess APD. We also offer “Becoming Better Listeners” a treatment program for children with auditory processing disorder.
