Auditory processing is the analysis of sounds received by the hearing system within the brain to make sense out of them. Children and adults with auditory processing disorders (APD) have difficulty with listening despite having normal hearing. They can have trouble understanding in everyday listening conditions (e.g. in background noise, rapid speech, or competing speech).
There has been an increase in professional and public consciousness of APD in recent years. Despite this, diagnosis and treatment are still challenging, given the complex and heterogeneous clinical profiles of the disorder. APD can also occur with other conditions (e.g. attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, learning disabilities, reading disorders, and speech and language disorders), making the process of differential diagnosis even more challenging.
This SALTS workshop is conducted by Senior Principal Audiologist Dr Jenny Loo and her team of audiologists and speech and language therapists from NUH Centre of Hearing Intervention and Language Development (NUH CHILD).
We will explore up-to-date coverage of topics such as:
- Does APD exist?
- What is the current evidence for APD?
- How do audiologists diagnose APD and how can SLTs contribute to the assessment process?
- How can SLTs help individuals with APD?
- What are the future directions for APD for SLTs in Singapore?
The workshop will also include a panel discussion of case studies.
