Central Auditory Processing Evaluation (CAPD)

CAPD is assessed through the use of special tests designed to assess the various auditory functions of the brain. The tests are often broken down into four subcategories including monaural low-redundancy speech tests, dichotic speech tests, temporal patterning tests, and binaural interaction tests.

Who can test for CAPD

Audiologists are the professionals responsible for the diagnosis on CAPD

Management of CAPD

In general, the approaches to remediation or management fall into three main categories:
(a) Enhancing the individual’s auditory perceptual skills via auditory training
(b) Enhancing the individual’s language and cognitive resources
(c) Improving the quality of the auditory signal via environmental modification and assistive devices
