A Listening Disorders Approach to CAPD Construct Controversies
Format(s): eWorkshop
There is not one single, authoritative construct or definition for central auditory processing disorders (CAPDs), which often results in patients receiving a general diagnosis that is not deficit-specific and management strategies that are not individualized and therefore produce less impactful outcomes. This session will describe an alternative approach to characterizing CAPDs – that is, identifying specific clinical entities within the broad construct of CAPDs that professionals can unambiguously diagnose and for which deficit-specific interventions can lead to improved outcomes in auditory processing. This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”
CAPD: Evidence-Based Practice Recommendations
Format(s): eWorkshop
The recommended practices for diagnosis and intervention for central auditory processing disorder (CAPD) are dynamic, undergoing review and refinement as new research emerges. These recommended practices have been developed by groups like the American Academy of Audiology and ASHA, with careful discussion and consideration of points of disagreement. Nonetheless, a number of controversial assertions and practice recommendations continue to appear in the literature. This session will examine a number of these issues, with a focus on highlighting the current state of the evidence supporting best clinical practices and decision-making. This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”
CAPD: Making Informed, Evidence-Based Clinical Decisions
Format(s): eWorkshop
This session will provide information to assist clinicians in making informed, evidence-based clinical decisions about CAPD assessment and intervention. For example, a considerable body of research has demonstrated the efficiency of individual central auditory tests and test batteries based on performance of individuals – including children – with confirmed CANS lesions. Similarly, there is substantial evidence that auditory training can be an effective treatment for central auditory processing deficits. This session will provide an overview of research support for existing and emerging assessment and treatment practices. This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”
How to “Process” Central Auditory Processing Disorders
Format(s): eWorkshop
Central auditory processing disorders (CAPDs) can be confusing and challenging for audiologists and speech-language pathologists alike. This session will explain the theory behind CAPDs, clarify the definition, outline some of the controversial aspects, and offer practical strategies for diagnosis and intervention. This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”
International Perspectives on CAPDs
Format(s): eWorkshop
This session will feature an international panel of speakers discussing cutting-edge issues and research in CAPD. The group will explore what practices from around the world can tell us about optimizing diagnostic evaluation of CAPD, formulating a management plan based on diagnostic evaluation findings, and managing CAPD through improved access to auditory information. The panel will focus on using evidence, client characteristics, and a multidisciplinary approach in evaluation and intervention planning. This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”
Assistive Technology For Students With (C)APDs
Format(s): eWorkshop
Technology is ever-evolving, so it can be difficult to know what options are available—and which are evidence-based. This session will review recent literature and provide examples of assistive technologies (AT)—including those that are visually based, auditory-based, or a combination—and resources that can be used with students with (C)APDs. The presenter will also discuss nontraditional resources such as online and in-person support groups for parents and professionals for those situations when an expert is not available. This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”
Computerized Auditory Training for Improving Auditory Processing Skills
Format(s): eWorkshop
One approach to addressing diagnosed auditory processing deficits in children is to provide live auditory training augmented by computerized training protocols, which offers several advantages over live training alone. This session will include examples of available computerized auditory training programs designed to improve auditory processing skills along with a review of available literature examining effectiveness of these programs. This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”
Educational Intervention Plans for Students With Auditory Processing Deficits
Format(s): eWorkshop
Making appropriate recommendations and developing a relevant intervention plan can be challenging for professionals who treat children with auditory difficulties. This session will provide four case studies of children diagnosed with varying difficulties in auditory skills. The presenters will discuss intervention strategies, goals, and objectives for each case, reflecting an Individualized Education Program/Individualized Service Plan or 504 Plan, and taking into account Common Core and other state standards/curricula. This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”
Patient-Centered Testing for CAPDs
Format(s): eWorkshop
Selecting and interpreting a CAPD test battery that is appropriate to the individual patient is critical to securing much-needed services and achieving positive outcomes. Many audiologists use a standardized, normative-scored CAPD test battery rather than a test battery driven by specific patient characteristics because they do not know how to appropriately select a comprehensive test battery or because of beliefs that testing cannot be performed for certain populations (e.g., children younger than age 7). This session will discuss tips for putting together patient-driven testing options, including how to administer and score them. This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”
Speech-Language and Social-Emotional Assessments for Kids With CAPDs
Format(s): eWorkshop
Comprehensive management and treatment for children with CAPDs necessitates effective evaluation of co-morbidities and other related factors. This session will examine language and other deficits that often affect kids with CAPDs, including those in reading, receptive language, higher-order language, executive functions, written language, and social/emotional behaviors. The speakers will discuss the relevant assessments that are available to contribute to a holistic evaluation to inform management and treatment decisions. This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”
The Role of Electrophysiology in CAPD Testing
Format(s): eWorkshop
Behavioral tests for CAPDs can be affected by many factors, including cognition, development, compliance, and language ability, which limits interpretation of test results. This session will discuss electrophysiological testing, which provides an objective method of assessing the neural integrity of auditory processing at multiple levels of the auditory system and can aid in the interpretation of behavioral test results. This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”
The Role of Neuropsychological Evaluations in Differential Diagnosis of CAPDs
Format(s): eWorkshop
Children and adolescents often present with complex profiles, with co-morbid areas of challenge and multiple possibilities for processing weaknesses, which makes diagnosis and intervention planning challenging. This session will discuss differential diagnosis of CAPDs, testing instruments that assess neuropsychological functioning, and the role of interdisciplinary collaboration. This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”
Screening Students for CAPDs
Format(s): eWorkshop
Knowing when, why, and who to refer for central auditory evaluation is challenging, particularly in school settings. This session will address questions that professionals who work in schools or with young people may face: Are there “red flags" for a CAPD? What will I know after the evaluation that I don’t already know? Will results change services? Are we “overtesting/over-referring”? Are there ways to provide screening and/or intervention services that align with school-based RtI/MTSS models of intervention? How can schools screen for processing issues in ways that meet students’ needs and use resources efficiently? After screening, what’s next? Are procedures different across work settings? This course is a recorded session from the 2018/2019 online conference “Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD).”
Perspectives, SIG 6, Vol. 3, Part 1, 2018
Format(s): SIG Perspectives and Exam
This Perspectives, shared two insightful articles that could influence clinical care decisions. The first article discussed the ambiguity in the diagnosis of an auditory processing disorder and what to consider when selecting a diagnostic test. This article defined the “gold standard” test and elaborated on diagnostic accuracy research. The second article detailed the prevalence and indicators of dementia. Research suggests that hearing loss is a potential modifiable factor for dementia. This article reviewed considerations for hearing assessment, counseling, and communicating with patients with dementia. Audiologists play an important role in differentiating communicative behaviors associated with hearing loss from those of dementia and can assist in optimizing hearing and safety of persons with dementia.
