Children and adults can have normal hearing sensitivities, yet still experience hearing difficulties, particularly in competing noise environment. They can hear all the words however fail to understand the conversation. Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) simply refers to difficulty processing what we hear.
The complete Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) assessment comprises two parts: The full diagnostic audiological assessment and the Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) test batteries. If normal hearing sensitivity is confirmed after 1-hour diagnostic audiological assessment, the Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) test batteries will proceed.
The overall assessment will take 2-3 hours, depending on the age of the patient. The assessment can be divided into two separate appointments if needed.
Any available diagnostic reports (e.g. SLT, Educational Psych, etc) should be provided to an audiologist prior to the APD assessment, to ensure an accurate diagnosis of APD
