Workshop link and materials will be emailed to registered participants.
Assessing and treating auditory processing disorders may be complex but it need not be complicated. By understanding the neuroscientific foundations of auditory processing and the continuum of skills encompassed by that term, we can develop assessment tools that clarify the nature of the academic, communicative, and social-emotional challenges observed among school-age learners.
Knowing “what’s driving the bus” informs our intervention process, enabling the educational team to develop effective plans of remediation and accommodations that reduce or resolve specific deficiencies, minimize the impact of impaired processing in the learner’s life, and maximize school-based resources.
