    it is what we do with what we hear, what does brain do with the sound that is coming in
  2. what are the central auditory processes
    • localization/lateralization
    • auditory performance with competing acoustic signals
    • auditory performance with degraded signals
    • auditory discrimination (ram v ran)
    • auditory pattern recognition (soft, soft, loud or high high low)
    • temporal ability, prosodics of speech, (dime v time, and are you a light house keeper or ar you a lighthouse keeper) prags
  3. what are the signs of CAPD
    • may act as if has hearing loss
    • may have difficulty following multi-step directions

    • history of middle ear dysfunction
    • poor musical ability

    • difficulty hearing a noise
  4. possible causes of CAPD
    • may be related to frequent middle ear infections
    • related to genetics
    • related to deprivation (oxygen etc)
    • related to neuro-maturational delays
    • head trauma
  5. tests performed for CAPD
    • full audiologic eval
    • speech in noise
    • dichotic listening tasks-stim in both ears simultaneously with the info presented to one ear being different from that presented in the other
    • temporal test
    • auditory attention test
    • binaural integration-ability to repeat everything that is heard
  6. types of CAPD
    • aud decoding-difficulty filling in missing pieces have the dime v have you got a dime
    • integration-difficulty connecting the linguistic content with the prosodic intent (tone of voice)
    • temporal/prosodic-difficulty understanding the intent rather that the content
    • auditory closure- the ability to fill in missing or distorted portions of auditory signal to understand the whole message
  7. suggested strategies for CAPD
    • depends on the CAPD
    • preferential seating
    • in classroom accommodations
    • assistive listening devices
    • games
    • computer programs
    • tasks or strategies that parents can do at home
  8. what is the protocol for referrals
    • age-seven or older
    • normal hearing
    • psychological eval
    • cognition (avg)
    • speech/lang evals
    • behavior, attention and motivation
  9. what do you do when the child meets the psychological criteria
    • medical history
    • screening tools
    • trial strategies SST
    • refer for CAP informal assessment (SLP)
    • then refer for a eval
