Auditory Processing Disorder Test Battery in European Portuguese—Development and Normative Data for Pediatric Population
A new battery for Central Auditory Processing assessment for European Portuguese applicable to children aged 5 and above, named BAPA-PE, providing information regarding test selection and development is presented, and is available for clinical use with normative data. Expand
Relation between auditory memory and global memory in young and older adults
The findings indicated that auditory memory is modality-specific and is independent of global memory, and all three measures were sensitive in detecting age-related decline in memory. Expand

Clinical Expertise Is Core to an Evidence-Based Approach to Auditory Processing Disorder: A Reply to Neijenhuis et al. 2019
This perspective article rebuts Neijenhuis et al. (1), and presents a rationale for evidence-based practice founded on the premise that research on APD is only clinically applicable when conducted on clinical populations diagnosed with APD. Expand
Cluster Analyses Reveals Subgroups of Children With Suspected Auditory Processing Disorders
Background Some children appear to not hear well in class despite normal hearing sensitivity. These children may be referred for auditory processing disorder (APD) assessment but can also haveExpand
On the definition of APD and the need for a conceptual model of terminology
  • W. Wilson

  • International journal of audiology
  • 2019
A conceptual model of APD terminology is needed that considers nominal, conceptual and real definitions as well as different purposes for defining APD within professional and public domains. Expand
Evolving the concept of APD
  • W. Wilson
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • International journal of audiology
  • 2018
The concept of APD could be better evolved by considering it as a spectrum disorder spanning from bottom-up AP to the top-down cognitive processes (particularly attention) that affect it. Expand


Assistive technology evaluations: Remote-microphone technology for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Individual and group data suggest that RM technology may improve auditory function in children with ASD in the classroom, at home, and in social situations, but variability in the data and the inability of some children to complete the behavioral measures indicates that individualized assistive technology evaluations including functional questionnaires will be necessary to determine if the RM technology will be of benefit to a particular child who has ASD.

Personal FM systems for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and/or attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD): an initial investigation.
Given the significantly better speech recognition in noise, increased on-task behaviors, and improved teacher ratings of listening behaviors with the FM system, these devices may be a viable option for children who have ASD and ADHD in the classroom. Expand
The CHAPS, SIFTER, and TAPS-R as predictors of (C)AP skills and (C)APD.
The CHAPS, SIFTER, and TAPS-R should be used to highlight concerns about a child but not to determine whether a diagnostic (C)AP assessment is particularly warranted. Expand
Dichotic listening in children: Age-related changes in direction and magnitude of ear advantage
Children between the ages of 5 and 12 years were tested with dichotic listening tests utilizing single syllable words and random presentations of digits. They produced a higher prevalence of left earExpand

Comorbidity of auditory processing, language, and reading disorders.
Assessment of comorbidity of auditory processing disorder (APD), language impairment (LI), and reading disorder (RD) in school-age children found that LI and RD commonly co-occur with APD. Expand
Assessment of the efferent auditory system in children with suspected auditory processing disorder: the Middle ear muscle reflex and contralateral inhibition of OAEs
This research supports earlier studies showing altered acoustic reflexes in children with APD, and no group differences were found for the MOC reflex measures, consistent with some earlier studies in childrenwith APD. Expand
