About This Title
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."
