Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD)

Auditory processing difficulties can be experienced by anyone.  Common symptoms include;

 

    - being able to "hear, but does not understand",

 

    - having difficulty reading,

 

    - frequently needing directions to be repeated, and

 

    - having difficulty remembering what was said.

 

 

These symptoms can occur with or without a hearing loss.  A thorough examination by an  audiologist experienced in CAPD is required to diagnose an auditory processing disorder .  There are effective treatments for Auditory Processing Disorders including Basic Auditory Training (BAT) and dichotic listening. Contact Dr. Maria Abramson today by calling 949-495-3327 to schedule an appointment.
