The complex, intricate, amazing brain!

The brain has no fences to separate different areas from each other. Each specific area flows into each other just like a meadow flows into a river or forest. And this allows the brain the ability to use other areas at the same time to strengthen the information coming in and the commands that have to go out.

And when one normal flow is disrupted, it results in the disruption of other areas and vice versa.

Recent Brain Research

Recent brain research makes us look differently at the brain and its amazing functions. The more we learn about how the brain works, the more we realize the intricacies of all the processes which bind together to create the ability to learn. There are many processes involved including visual, auditory, cognitive, speech, language, attention and motor which all together allow us to read, hear, see and learn. Each individual brain site presents its own contribution and its possible interference in the whole.

What is an Auditory Processing Disorder?

An Auditory Processing Disorder is a neurological based listening disorder where the ear may hear normally but the brain cannot or does not process the information accurately. According to the position paper by the American Speech Language and Hearing Association, APD is best viewed as a deficit in the neural processing of auditory stimuli that may coexist with but is not the result of dysfunction in other modalities. It may lead to or be associated with difficulties in higher order language, learning and communication functions.

APD Evaluations

Audiology Solutions LA’s objective is to engage with other professionals in a mulit-professional model to provide comprehensive auditory evaluations to children with various learning problems. We evaluate children as early as 5 years.

The APD evaluation includes:

  1. Review of previous assessments by other professionals including IEPs from the school.
  2. Assessment which lasts 1 ½ to 3 hours
  3. Report
  4. 1 to 1 ½ hour telephone conference with the parents to discuss and explain the test results.
