Program Description:

Auditory-Language Processing describes the processes needed for a child to receive, process and use auditory information. Some children have difficulty with these processes due to an auditory processing disorder, others due to hearing loss and still others due to listening challenges.

This workshop presents information about the auditory-language process and then addresses the needs of children who have these difficulties due to a variety of causes. The workshop encompasses evaluation and treatment of auditory-language challenges in school-aged children. This workshop will focus on auditory-language interventions that can be easily implemented by speech-language pathologist and special educators.
