Children and adults who have normal hearing, may still exhibit signs of hearing loss and may want to consider a central auditory processing disorder test. The disorder is usually found in school aged children when academic difficulties are discovered by the teacher or parents. Individuals with central auditory processing disorder usually show challenges organizing and making sense of sound.

Signs of central auditory processing include but are not limited to:

  • difficulty hearing in the presence of background noise

  • difficulty with attention

  • difficulty following directions

  • asking for information to be repeated

  • taking longer to respond during oral communication

Central Auditory Processing Disorder testing is available at Toronto Hearing Consultants. The test battery used is the Buffalo Model, developed by Jack Katz and tests for difficulties in four categories of central auditory processing.
