Abstract

Audiologists are seeking evidence to guide clinical decision-making regarding the tests used to diagnose auditory processing disorder (APD) in children. Novel research paradigms using a population health framework hold promise in helping clinicians understand the prevalence, profile, and social underpinnings of APD in the general pediatric population. In addition, tests employing novel stimuli like speech-evoked auditory potentials or spatial and vocal cues may lead the way toward a new and more reliable APD test battery.
