Ruling out or identifying APD can ensure your child is receiving the correct treatment.
Children with auditory processing disorders often try very hard to understand spoken messages and become confused, angry, or frustrated when they are unsuccessful. The challenges imposed by Auditory Processing Disorder can impede a child’s ability to interact with their peers since they often cannot understand the rules of a game or phrases their friends use. In school, children with Auditory Processing Disorder often have trouble with spelling, reading, and understanding information presented verbally in the classroom. Without the correct diagnosis, these struggles often lead to counseling, tutoring, and/or years of extra reading instruction working around an underlying problem.
Auditory Processing Center is dedicated to providing a comprehensive APD evaluation along with individualized, detailed, deficit specific recommendations for treatment to put your child on the path for future success. Due to the high quality and unique nature of our services, it is not unusual to have families travel to Auditory Processing Center from other states for an evaluation. If your child shows any signs of APD, you can first contact Auditory Processing Center for a phone consultation. This initial consultation is an opportunity to gain insight into your child’s specific symptoms and recommend further steps for evaluation and treatment. If your child already has a diagnosis of APD and you would like more information on how to help your child and recommendations for treatment you can also contact us to schedule a consultation.

If you have questions, would like more information, or would like to schedule an appointment, you may also contact Auditory Processing Center via email. Auditory Processing Center will provide the guidance and support needed to help your child overcome APD symptoms, regain confidence, and succeed, even in challenging listening environments, so your child can reach his/her full potential.
