In the foreword, Dr. Robert Burkard states, "If you are looking for a clinical cookbook on how to diagnose and treat those with (central) auditory processing disorders (CAPD), you should not read this book. This book is much less than a clinical cookbook, and much, much more." Featuring contributions from a stellar team of expert contributors in the areas of audiology, psychology, anatomy, neuroscience, imaging science, and epidemiology, this new book addresses major controversies in the field of auditory processing and its disorders. The contributors consider a range of topics including the history of the field, contemporary anatomical models, auditory processing streams, neuroplasticity, professional models, modality specificity, music perception and its disorders, speech recognition, aging, educational outcomes, tinnitus, and auditory neuropathy.
Ryan McCreery, MS (Boys Town National Research Hospital), Doody's Review Service (2009):
"This is an excellent encapsulation of the current state of research into the assessment of auditory preocessing disorders."
Tony Sirimanna (Great Ormond Street Hospital, London), Community Ear and Hearing Health (2009):
"This is a very interesting and timely text with a group of diverse authors, collectively providing a comprehensive coverage of this subject that has attracted significant and renewed interest over the last few years. ... An excellent book for those interested in APD to read and certainly worth having a copy for personal use."
A. Banerjee, Journal of Laryngology and Otology (2009):
"A very interesting book ... Chapters are not limited to topics directly related to central auditory processing disorder but address multiple clinical entities including auditory neuropathy, specific learning difficulties and tinnitus."
Annette Hurley, PhD, CCC-A, Otology & Neurotology (2010):
"This text is an excellent encapsulation of the current state of research in CAPD. Overall, this text encourages thoughtful consideration of contemporary and future trends in CAPD. ... It will be of interest to every clinician and researcher who has an interest in auditory processing."

About The Editors
Anthony T. Cacace, PhD, is an audiologist and research professor of communication sciences and disorders at Wayne State University. He was staff scientist at the Advanced Imaging Center, the Neurosciences Institute, Department of Neurology, and was director of oto-neurological research in the Division of Otolaryngology at Albany Medical College before transitioning to Wayne State University. Dr. Cacace's interests include auditory processing disorders, psychoacoustics, electroacoustics (otoacoustic emissions, middle ear power reflectance), electrophysiology, neuroimaging, and tinnitus.
