Evaluating (C)APD:  Interpretation
and analysis considerations

Thursday Oct. 20, 2022
7:00pm - 9:00pm

Speaker: Donna Merchant, AuD

Course Description

The presentation will provide an overview of the numerous tests available to evaluate auditory processing skills.  There is no gold standard for testing, leading audiologists to select, and create, their own test batteries.  This presentation will go over the available validated test assessments and critically analyze them.  Case studies will be included to provide examples of various test collections.  There will be discussion on how to interpret results and create appropriate recommendations.

 Course Objectives

As a result of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Interpret auditory processing test assessments to incorporate into practice
  • Describe how auditory processes manifest differently across patients.
  • Define the meaning of auditory processing and how it relates to children and adults.
  • Develop strategies to successfully make appropriate recommendations for these patients.

Audience: Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists
