Understanding Auditory Processing Disorder
Auditory Processing Disorder (APD), is a neurodevelopmental condition that affects the brain’s ability to process and interpret sounds effectively. Individuals with APD may struggle to understand speech, especially in noisy environments, and often have difficulties with tasks that require auditory processing skills, such as following instructions, remembering information, and distinguishing between similar sounds. While APD can pose challenges in academic, social, and everyday situations, early diagnosis and appropriate interventions can greatly help individuals with APD improve their listening skills and overall quality of life.
Your Auditory Processing Evaluation
We will first give you a pre-appointment questionnaire to learn about your medical history, any communication issues, and any symptoms you’ve had before we start your auditory processing evaluation. Your ears will then be physically examined by one of our experts. Your audiologist will then lead you through a series of tests to evaluate your capacity for speech comprehension under various circumstances. The time it takes to complete your auditory processing test should be roughly between 90 and two hours.
