Auditory Processing Disorders (APD) and Testing

Student in classAn auditory processing disorder (APD) is when the brain cannot use what is heard efficiently or correctly, even when a standard hearing test is normal. People with auditory processing disorders have symptoms similar to those with learning disabilities, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, or language processing disorders. Integrated Hearing Health wants to help gather the information you need. Our APD evaluations include a complete hearing evaluation and a battery of APD tests, as well as a comprehensive report with recommendations.

If your child takes medication for ADD or AD/HD they must take their medication as usual. Not taking medication as prescribed will interfere with accurate test results. If prescribed medication is not taken as directed before the test, your child will be rescheduled and charged a rescheduling fee of $150.
