Who Should Attend: Those interested in gaining additional knowledge regarding implementing auditory processing evaluations into their clinical practice. Level: Instructional Level:
Program Focus: Knowledge
Learner Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the Web seminar will be able to:
1. identify the need for implementation of auditory processing evaluations and rehabilitation into clinical practice.
2. identify an appropriate test battery for the diagnosis of (C)APD.
3. identify appropriate (re)habilitative programs for (C)APD.
Description: Auditory processing disorders (APD) may be defined as a deficit in the efficiency and effectiveness by which the CNS processes auditory information. APD is often present in light of normal peripheral hearing sensitivity. Diagnosis of APD can be difficult and the influence of a number of confounding variables must be taken into account. This eAudiology Web seminar will focus on pathophysiology of auditory processing, as well as the principals behind diagnosis of APD and subsequent (re)habilitation. Included in the presentation will be a recommended minimal APD test battery which will include discussion of behavioral, electroacoustic and electrophysiological measures.
