  • CAPD Test Melbourne
    An Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) is a deficit in the way the neural representation of sounds is processed by the brain, resulting in a distorted neural representation of the auditory signal within the auditory nervous system. APD creates difficulty in listening (i.e. hearing with intent to extract information). (Dillon and Cameron, 2015)
    Hearing loss is a common disability affecting 1/7 Australian’s over the age of 65. The first point of contact for persons who notice hearing difficulties, is the local GP. Normally the GP will look for obvious signs of hearing loss, such as ear infections and/or wax build up then refer for an audiological assessment. Should a specific degree of hearing loss and poor speech clarity be identified, amplification options are explored. Whilst amplification, such as the use of hearing aids and personal listening devices, do not restore hearing to normal, in conjunction with rehabilitation this can be life changing to both the hearing impaired and their close communication partners.
