Alicia Swann

Alicia Swann, M.C.D, CCC-A, is a board-certified educational audiologist with specialized training in the evaluation of central auditory function. Alicia has 23 years of experience working with children with auditory processing disorder (APD). Her passion for helping children with listening comprehension problems led to the development of Auditory Processing Center, LLC, in Clinton, MS, a private practice specializing in assessment and treatment of auditory processing disorder (APD) and auditory training therapy. In addition to evaluation and intervention for children and adults with APD, her areas of expertise include, developing listening and spoken language skills in children with communication disorders and auditory therapy for cochlear implant recipients and hearing aid users. Before going into private practice, she served as Audiology Director in a specialized school for children with hearing impairment, APD, and language disorders, and developed auditory curriculums for listening skill development and auditory processing intervention. She received her M.C.D. in Audiology from Auburn University, and is a certified member of the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA), Board Certified in Audiology through the American Board of Audiology, a Fellow of the American Academy of Audiology, a licensed Audiologist by the Mississippi State Board of Health, a licensed Audiology Educator by the Mississippi Department of Education, and is an active member of the International Guild of Auditory Processing Specialists. She has co-authored two research articles published in the International Journal of Audiology on diagnosis of amblyaudia (lazy ear) and the effectiveness of Auditory Rehabilitation for Interaural Asymmetry (ARIA) for treatment of amblyaudia. Alicia presents nationally on Auditory Processing Disorder, and frequently provides consultations, in-services, and presentations for professional organizations.
