Professionals may believe things about evaluating auditory processing disorders (APD) which do not have support. This webinar discusses misbeliefs about APD including the minimum age for testing, testing children with cognitive deficits, testing must be in the audiology booth, and APD does not differ from language disorders and ADHD. Learner Outcomes: Participants will describe various misbeliefs held regarding auditory processing disorders (APD) in children; participants will describe the evidence that proves these beliefs are not supported; participants will explain why it is important to understand the truths about evaluating auditory processing disorders rather than holding misbeliefs having no support.
