Sometimes hearing loss occurs not in the ear itself, but in the brain's ability to make use of the sound the ear receives.  We offer Auditory Processing (APD) evaluations for those individuals where this may be concern.   

For children in whom APD may be a concern, limited evaluations are possible at age 5, with definitive testing available at age 7 or greater.  This is when normative data is available to reference results.  We have a wonderful Speech Language Pathologist who we can refer you to for treatment after diagnosis.  

For additional information on how our brain hears, here are some great additional resources:
