Record type: Article


Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) is topic that is receiving increasing attention worldwide. APD was first described in 19541 as the inability ‘to structure the auditory world’ and has a long and controversial history regarding its definition, neural basis, diagnosis and management. To address this, the British Society of Audiology’s APD Special Interest Group (APD SIG) recently published two key documents, namely a Position Statement and Practice Guidance Document.2,3 These documents provide an overview of the UK position on APD, its diagnosis and management, citing evidence levels, to inform clinicians of current best practice whilst simultaneously guiding further research. The APD SIG, which comprises of researchers and clinicians across a wide range of disciplines, have also been instrumental in co-ordinating a one-day conference titled ‘Global Perspectives on (C)APD’ held in conjunction with the American Academy of Audiology (AAA) convention in Boston, Massachusetts, in March 2012. The purpose of this conference was to bring together leading researchers and clinicians working in the area of APD from around the world to share their perspectives on recent developments and future directions in this area. This article provides a brief update and overview of the UK position, as well as guidelines for assessing and managing APD.
