Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) occurs in individuals with difficulties processing auditory information often described as “Central” Auditory processing deficit (CAPD). At East Coast, we perform a comprehensive Auditory Processing evaluation by our Doctors of Audiology alongside other specialists to dismiss any other concomitant deficits.
This evaluation helps us understand why individuals may struggle to understand speech stimuli especially in the presence of background noise, despite having normal or near normal hearing.
