Obtaining a Correct Diagnosis
The struggle to communicate can cause feelings of frustration, insecurity, defiance and sometimes aggression. Auditory processing difficulties may be misdiagnosed as attention deficit disorder. Adults may be diagnosed with central auditory processing disorder following traumatic brain injury or stroke.
Duke audiologists work closely with speech pathologists to fully evaluate your ability to process auditory information. This combined approach is crucial to identifying the cluster of problems that may lead to auditory processing disorder. The information gleaned through this comprehensive process enables our speech pathologists and audiologists to develop an individualized treatment plan that meets your needs.
