Auditory Processing Center specializes in assessment and treatment of auditory processing disorder (APD) a common neurological condition that affects 43% of children struggling academically. Children with APD can hear but their brain does not process information accurately or rapidly enough to use it effectively in learning. APD is treatable, but it is often overlooked or mistaken for other disorders such as ADHD. We provide thorough auditory processing disorder evaluations and individualized, deficit-specific therapy based on each child’s unique profile to help individuals overcome the processing deficits that interfere with comprehension and communication to enhance learning and academic performance. Our team of knowledgeable clinicians is committed to taking as much time as necessary for each appointment, helping you understand our recommendations, and providing the best services for listening and learning difficulties to put your child on the path for future success.

Various aspects of Swallowing, Feeding & Food Aversions are addressed by our Speech & Occupational Therapists (STs & OTs). The ST assesses the swallowing mechanism to determine if your child is at risk for possible penetration &/or aspiration (foods & liquids going to the level of the vocal cords &/or below the vocal cords into the lungs resulting in possible aspiration pneumonia). Feeding evaluation & treatment may be assessed by the ST or OT or in collaboration with each other to determine if feeding difficulties are due to reflux, sensory deficits, oral aversion, or structural abnormality. Swallowing & feeding therapy typically requires a multidisciplinary team comprised of an ST, OT, nutritionist, physician, & possibly a GI specialist. STs & OTs play a critical role as liaison between other professionals and the child’s family to ensure the best therapeutic outcomes for the pediatric population. Our feeding and swallowing specialists provide exceptional care & extraordinary results.

Auditory Processing Center specializes in assessment and treatment of auditory processing disorder (APD) a common neurological condition that affects 43% of children struggling academically. Children with APD can hear but their brain does not process information accurately or rapidly enough to use it effectively in learning. APD is treatable, but it is often overlooked or mistaken for other disorders such as ADHD. We provide thorough auditory processing disorder evaluations and individualized, deficit-specific therapy based on each child’s unique profile to help individuals overcome the processing deficits that interfere with comprehension and communication to enhance learning and academic performance. Our team of knowledgeable clinicians is committed to taking as much time as necessary for each appointment, helping you understand our recommendations, and providing the best services for listening and learning difficulties to put your child on the path for future success.
