Summary: There is not one single, authoritative construct or definition for central auditory processing disorders (CAPDs), which often results in patients receiving a general diagnosis that is not deficit-specific and management strategies that are not individualized and therefore produce less impactful outcomes. This session will describe an alternative approach to characterizing CAPDs – that is, identifying specific clinical entities within the broad construct of CAPDs that professionals can unambiguously diagnose and for which deficit-specific interventions can lead to improved outcomes in auditory processing. This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”

Summary: This session provides an interdisciplinary (audiology, otology, and physical therapy) perspective on management of patients with dizziness, specifically geared toward cutting-edge management techniques and recommendations for care. The panel presentation discusses surgical and nonsurgical approaches and clinical cases to highlight patient benefits and improved clinical outcomes. A question-and-answer period concludes the presentation. This course was presented and recorded at the 2019 ASHA Convention. The session was developed by, and presenters invited by, Hearing, Vestibular, Tinnitus - Assessment and Intervention: Adult.

Summary: Central auditory processing disorders (CAPDs) can be confusing and challenging for audiologists and speech-language pathologists alike. This session will explain the theory behind CAPDs, clarify the definition, outline some of the controversial aspects, and offer practical strategies for diagnosis and intervention. This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”

Summary: Knowing when, why, and who to refer for central auditory evaluation is challenging, particularly in school settings. This session will address questions that professionals who work in schools or with young people may face: Are there “red flags" for a CAPD? What will I know after the evaluation that I don’t already know? Will results change services? Are we “overtesting/over-referring”? Are there ways to provide screening and/or intervention services that align with school-based RtI/MTSS models of intervention? How can schools screen for processing issues in ways that meet students’ needs and use resources efficiently? After screening, what’s next? Are procedures different across work settings? This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”

Summary: One approach to addressing diagnosed auditory processing deficits in children is to provide live auditory training augmented by computerized training protocols, which offers several advantages over live training alone. This session will include examples of available computerized auditory training programs designed to improve auditory processing skills along with a review of available literature examining effectiveness of these programs. This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”

Summary: The recommended practices for diagnosis and intervention for central auditory processing disorder (CAPD) are dynamic, undergoing review and refinement as new research emerges. These recommended practices have been developed by groups like the American Academy of Audiology and ASHA, with careful discussion and consideration of points of disagreement. Nonetheless, a number of controversial assertions and practice recommendations continue to appear in the literature. This session will examine a number of these issues, with a focus on highlighting the current state of the evidence supporting best clinical practices and decision-making. This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”

Summary: Meniere’s disease (MD) rarely occurs in children. Due to this, care and treatment by knowledgeable clinicians and physicians are lacking. This presentation reviews a case of a 10-year-old male with diagnosed MD, the interdisciplinary approach for care and treatment, the cross-facility approach for obtaining best results, and follow-up hearing aid fitting suggestions for the affected ear. This course was presented and recorded at the 2019 ASHA Convention.

Summary: Comprehensive management and treatment for children with CAPDs necessitates effective evaluation of co-morbidities and other related factors. This session will examine language and other deficits that often affect kids with CAPDs, including those in reading, receptive language, higher-order language, executive functions, written language, and social/emotional behaviors. The speakers will discuss the relevant assessments that are available to contribute to a holistic evaluation to inform management and treatment decisions. This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”

Summary: This session will provide information to assist clinicians in making informed, evidence-based clinical decisions about CAPD assessment and intervention. For example, a considerable body of research has demonstrated the efficiency of individual central auditory tests and test batteries based on performance of individuals – including children – with confirmed CANS lesions. Similarly, there is substantial evidence that auditory training can be an effective treatment for central auditory processing deficits. This session will provide an overview of research support for existing and emerging assessment and treatment practices. This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”

Summary: Children and adolescents often present with complex profiles, with co-morbid areas of challenge and multiple possibilities for processing weaknesses, which makes diagnosis and intervention planning challenging. This session will discuss differential diagnosis of CAPDs, testing instruments that assess neuropsychological functioning, and the role of interdisciplinary collaboration. This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”
