Central Auditory Processing Disorder: Tips for Successful Diagnosis- Free Speech CEU

tipsTips for the Differential Diagnosis of Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD)
When examining scores on central auditory processing tests, the examiner looks for patterns across the test battery to make a diagnosis. Often, the pattern is very clear and indicates a specific primary type of central auditory processing disorder (CAPD). But sometimes the pattern isn’t so clear, and we risk over- or underinterpreting the data, leading to misdiagnosis and ineffective intervention. In this course, Jeanane Ferre will discuss case studies to illustrate when data supports a diagnosis of a specific CAPD and when it does not. You’ll walk away with greater confidence in diagnostic decision making.
Use the central auditory processing test battery to rule in or out a specific primary CAPD.
Identify test results suggesting secondary (nonauditory) processing issues.
