Specialized Auditory Processing Disorder Evaluations

We typically don’t think too much about hearing until it starts to become difficult. In fact, listening involves a sophisticated interplay between the ears and the brain. The ears transmit sounds to the brain via the auditory nerve, and the brain decodes these sounds, identifying them as distinct noises like a car horn or a doorbell.

There is standard hearing loss, but there is also Auditory Processing Disorder (APD). This arises when sounds are audible but not fully comprehensible. Given that APDs can mimic hearing loss, an accurate diagnosis is crucial for tailoring effective treatments. At Hearing Smile Professionals, we administer various audiology tests to diagnose APDs, including:

  • Speech-in-noise testing – Using word recognition lists, we assess your ability to comprehend speech amidst varying levels of background noise.
  • Staggered spondaic word testing – We evaluate your capacity to repeat words presented to each ear. This test employs words sent at different times (non-competing) and simultaneously (competing).
  • Phonemic synthesis testing – We assess your aptitude for identifying complete words sent sound-by-sound to both ears.
