We specialize in assessing auditory processing abilities in school age children.  Presently, majority of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario do not have access to these services.  Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) affects approximately 10% of the general population.  Individuals with APD may exhibit difficulty following multiple auditory directions, difficulty understanding speech in background noise, difficulty learning to spell, read and write, and difficulty with rhythm plus intonation.  These are just a few of the signs.  This disorder can co-exist with other disorders such as ADD, ADHD, and language disorders. Treatment will be available by Fall 2011.
