Central auditory processing disorders often present with language disorders, sensory integration dysfunction, and learning disabilities (LD). In this study, a multimodal assessment of children with LD was used to identify certain problem areas. Phylogenetic analyses established the nature of the relationship among these areas and grouped them according to shared problem areas. The majority of children presented with deficits involving both the visual and auditory modalities, as well as problems with motor abilities and concentration skills. Within this majority group, further subgroups of problem areas were found to occur together. The results suggest that a multimodal perceptual approach is useful for enhancing diagnosis of and choosing interventions for these children.
