Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD):

What the Brain Does with What the Ears Hear

with Melissa Wilson Beer, AuD, FAAA

and Jody Vaynshtok, MS, CCC-SLP

While central auditory processing disorder (CAPD) can be initially assessed or screened during a neuropsychological or psychoeducational evaluation, best practice dictates that it must be diagnosed by an audiologist and treated by a speech language pathologist. Join two such professionals as they delve into the hallmarks of CAPD, its assessment, differential diagnosis, various profiles, functional implications, and treatment options. Learn more about when a referral is appropriate and about the importance of a multidisciplinary approach for best outcomes.


  1. Understand and identify the differences between the peripheral and central auditory systems.
  2. Identify at least three skills of central auditory processing.
  3. Identify the etiology and characteristics of Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD).
  4. Understand and identify the differences between ADHD and CAPD.  
  5. Name at least two screening measures to identify if a referral for a CAPD evaluation is warranted.
  6. Identify three different treatment strategies that may benefit different CAPD profiles.
