Receive an Auditory Processing Disorder Test in Lancaster, PA

Despite having normal hearing and intelligence, children and adults with an APD often struggle to recognize, comprehend, and distinguish spoken words. An APD is a hearing impairment—not a hearing loss—and it can only be diagnosed by a qualified audiologist. At Hearing Smile Professionals, we test for auditory processing disorders in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

What Is an Auditory Processing Disorder Test?

An APD evaluation typically includes several tests to help the audiologist assess the patient’s auditory processing abilities. The testing process begins with an in-depth discussion and case history. Next, if a diagnostic evaluation is needed to confirm normal hearing sensitivity, the audiologist will utilize state-of-the-art techniques and technologies, including highly tuned and calibrated hearing instruments, in a soundproof room to check the patient’s ability to hear the pitch and loudness of various sounds.

Depending on the patient’s age, needs, and other factors, an auditory processing disorder test can take up to two-to-three hours. Once the testing process is complete, the audiologist will interpret the results and provide tailored recommendations in a detailed report.
