Abramson Audiology
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.  If a hearing loss exists, it must be addressed before a CAPD evaluation.  A thorough examination by an  audiologist experienced in CAPD is required to identify an auditory processing disorder.  Contact Abramson Audiology today.
