Duke audiologists and speech pathologists evaluate and manage auditory processing disorder (APD) -- when, despite someone having normal hearing, a person's brain has difficulty processing auditory information. APD can affect both children and adults. It can cause problems with speech understanding, attention, learning, language, and reading. Our goal is to provide education and recommendations to strengthen listening and communication skills and to reduce the academic, social, or workplace impact of APD.
