Auditory processing disorder evaluation (available as of 7 years old)

It’s a type evaluation offered for children and adults to check for the presence of an auditory processing disorder (APD).

What is APD?

APD is a disorder that affects the central auditory system with a normal peripheral hearing. This means that the child can hear well, but there’s a disconnection between what you’re hearing and what the brain processes. It can translate into difficulties remembering instructions, organization of speech, or understanding a verbal message.

APD can cause learning and/or academic difficulties.

Consult an audiologist if your child has:

  • Learning and/or academic difficulties

  • Suspicion of ADD/ADHD

  • Hearing difficulties in noise

  • Difficulty following instruction


Note ADP evaluations are also offered for adults.
