Auditory Processing Evaluations
An Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) is a weakness in the way the brain processes and interprets the incoming auditory signal.
Those with APD can have an essentially normal hearing evaluation, however, they struggle processing auditory information. This may be because the brain is unable to properly interpret the incoming information, which can impact multiple academic and communication areas. These may include listening, learning, language, speech production, spelling, reading, socializing, and problem solving. APD evaluations are administered by audiologists and can be performed on those seven years of age and older.
Our Audiologists analyze the results of testing and devise a comprehensive therapy plan with the help of a multidisciplinary team. Additionally, our Speech Pathologists often provide intervention services that include compensatory strategies to both the patient and those working with the patient.
