A Useful Help for Children in School or for Those Using Hearing AIDS.
When a Central Auditory Processing Disorder is suspected, an otolaryngologist should be sought to conduct a detailed interview and to request the Central Auditory Processing examination, which is performed by an audiologist.
If the examination identifies which processing skills are altered, the treatment should be initiated through the Auditory Training. When such training is properly performed because the audiologist is specialized and the patient is engaged, there is usually a great improvement in the processing skills because the exercises are tailored to each case.
The weekly sessions usually last one hour, and 8 to 10 sessions are expected to get good results. Complementary home activities can be recommended according to the age and need of each patient.
