Prevalence and Remediation of Spatial Processing Disorder (SPD) in Indigenous Children in Regional Australia
(International Journal of Audiology, 2014)
This study aimed to determine the prevalence of spatial processing disorder (SPD) in the Indigenous Australian population and the benefit of and logistical issues arising from remediation of the disorder. Design: ...
Efficacy of the LiSN & Learn auditory training software: randomized blinded controlled study
(Audiology Research, 2012)
Children with a spatial processing disorder (SPD) require a more favorable signal-to-noise ratio in the classroom because they have difficulty perceiving sound source location cues. Previous research has shown that a novel ...
Comparison of two working memory test paradigms: Correlation with academic performance in school-aged children
(International Journal of School and Cognitive Psychology, 2014)
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between two different working memory task paradigms and academic achievement. Participants were 202 Australian primary-school children who were assessed on the ...
An opinion on the assessment of people who may have an auditory processing disorder
Abstract We need to rethink how we assess auditory processing disorder (APD). The current use of test batteries, while necessary and well-accepted, is at risk of failing as the size of these batteries increases. To counter ...
Evaluation of headphone effects on performance in LiSN & Learn auditory training software
(National Acoustic Laboratories, 2014)
Spatial processing is the ability to use binaural cues to separate and group sounds that are important for everyday listening. Spatial processing disorder (SPD) is the reduced ability to utilize binaural cues to segregate ...
Comments on “Factors influencing tests of auditory processing: A perspective on current issues and relevant concerns” by Tony Cacace and Dennis McFarland.
Auditory processing is defined as a modality-specific activity, and hence an auditory processing disorder cannot be diagnosed unless it can be shown that any deficit in performance is limited to, or at least predominantly ...
Results from a national central auditory processing disorder service: a "real world" assessment of diagnostic practices and remediation for CAPD
This article describes the development and evaluation of a national service to diagnose and remediate central auditory processing disorder (CAPD). Data was gathered from 38 participating Australian Hearing centres over an ...
Evaluation of headphone effects on performance in the LiSN & Learn auditory training software
(ANU Undergraduate Research Journal, 2015)
Spatial processing is the ability to use binaural cues to separate and group sounds that are important for everyday listening. Spatial processing disorder (SPD) is the reduced abilty to utilise binaural cues to segregate sounds.
The Dichotic Digits difference Test (DDdT): Development, Normative Data and Retest Reliability Studies
Background: The dichotic digits test is one of the most widely used assessment tools for central auditory processing disorder (CAPD). However, questions remain concerning the impact of cognitive factors on test ...
Effect of audibility on spatial release from speech-on-speech masking
(Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 2015)
This study investigated to what extent spatial release from masking (SRM) deficits in hearingimpaired adults may be related to reduced audibility of the test stimuli. Sixteen adults with sensorineural hearing loss and ...
