Speech Therapy -> Hearing


The type of therapy for individuals with hearing loss will differ greatly depending on the type and severity of hearing loss, the age of onset, and the age at which compensatory modes of communication were introduced. Although the therapy is conducted by a Speech Therapist, the patient and therapist may not always be using speech to communicate. Areas of focus in aural hab/rehab may include training in auditory perception and visual cues, improving speech, developing language, managing communication, and the management of devices that aid in hearing.

  • Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD) - Auditory processing disorder (APD) is a hearing problem that affects about 3%–5% of school-aged children. Kids with this condition, also known as central auditory processing disorder (CAPD), can't understand what they hear in the same way other kids do. This is because their ears and brain don't fully coordinate.
