Auditory Processing Disorder Interest Group - British Society of Audiology

The APD SIG, was established in 2003 and is the first BSA SIG. Our steering committee represents a broad range of professional disciplines, and includes leading researchers and clinicians in the field. We foster strong links with community, individuals with APD and their families, and are proud to have the parent of a child with APD as an advisor to our SIG. What is our aim? The aim our APD SIG is to promote a high standard of research and evidence-based care and encourage international and interdisciplinary collaboration. Our APD SIG has been at the forefront of international developments in recent years. The above documents culminated in the publication a BSA ‘white paper’ on Developmental APD, one of the three types of APD (Moore et al, 2013). Since 2011, and following our call for evidence based practice there has been a surge in the number of randomised control studies published and clearer report of subject selection criteria. What is an Auditory Processing Disorder?

Auditory Processing Disorder Service. An Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) refers to difficulty processing what is heard.

APD is characterised by poor perception of speech and non-speech sounds, has its origin in impaired neural function and impacts on life through a reduced ability to listen [BSA APD SIG 2011]. There are three types of APD: − Developmental APD: Cases presenting in childhood with normal hearing and no other known aetiology or potential risk factors.

MRC Institute of Hearing Research: Research

How we can understand speech at all in many modern, noisy environments remains a considerable mystery. The fact that we do, and that we do it much better than any machine or algorithm, places research into the neuroscience and psychology of hearing right at the forefront of 21st century science. About 8 million people in the UK have at least 25 dB of hearing loss, substantial enough to warrant a hearing aid – about 1 in 6 of the population. A further unknown number of millions of people have a “hidden” hearing loss.

The problems are exacerbated in background sounds that are commonplace in almost all listening situations, from busy social circumstances to listening to the radio in a car. IHR is the MRC's largest investment in hearing science. Translation of our science into clinical and industrial applications is a crucial aspect to our work. We plan to start new programmes this year. MRC Institute of Hearing Research: Publications. Publications from 2015 Most publications have more details available.

What is “twice exceptional”?

Twice exceptional

A "twice exceptional", “dual exceptionality”, or 2E child is one who is intellectually gifted, but also has difficulties such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, ADHD, dyspraxia, hearing or vision problems or other difficulties. Such children can be puzzles to both teachers and parents if they have all the attributes of an exceptionally or profoundly gifted child except where affected by the difficulty. The children can even appear 'normal' (that is, age appropriate) in their area of weakness, but much confusion, frustration and distress can ensue unless an accurate assessment of strengths and weaknesses is obtained. Many people don't realize that a child can be both gifted and have special needs, but Linda Silverman, the director of the Gifted Development Center (GDC) has found that 1/6 of the gifted children tested at the GDC have a difficulty of some type.

The presence of a specific learning difficulty does not mean that a child is any less intellectually gifted. What is behavioural optometry? WriteToThem - Email your Councillor, MP, MEP, MSP or Welsh, NI, or London Assembly Member for free.
