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 course provides an overview of the documentation requirements for Medicare reimbursement for dysphagia-related services, including evaluation, treatment plans, treatment notes, progress notes, discharge summaries, and common diagnostic and procedure codes. The speaker discusses frameworks – including the SMART and International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) frameworks – to help focus treatment plans on meaningful, measureable, and functional goals, giving examples of long- and short-term goals. The course also includes tips for streamlining documentation and suggestions for documenting progress to show skilled service.

Summary: This course includes five recorded sessions from the 2016 online conference “Maximizing Functional Outcomes for Patients With Dementia.” These sessions focus on key components of functional assessment and treatment of dementia within the constraints of current service delivery models. The conference included a total of 13 sessions, with the broad goal of describing a range of evidence-based clinical care techniques to get to the heart of patient-centered dementia care.

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: Making appropriate recommendations and developing a relevant intervention plan can be challenging for professionals who treat children with auditory difficulties. This session will provide four case studies of children diagnosed with varying difficulties in auditory skills. The presenters will discuss intervention strategies, goals, and objectives for each case, reflecting an Individualized Education Program/Individualized Service Plan or 504 Plan, and taking into account Common Core and other state standards/curricula. 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: 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).”
