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.


"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."
Annette Hurley, PhD, CCC-A, Otology & Neurotology (2010)

"This is an excellent encapsulation of the current state of research into the assessment of auditory preocessing disorders."
Ryan McCreery, MS (Boys Town National Research Hospital), Doody's Review Service (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."
Tony Sirimanna (Great Ormond Street Hospital, London), Community Ear and Hearing Health (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."
A. Banerjee, Journal of Laryngology and Otology (2009)

"Named to Doody's Core Titles in the Health Sciences 2015 list"
