Evaluation and Treatment

If APD is suspected, an audiologist at JFK Medical Center can run a series of tests to confirm a diagnosis and create a personalized treatment plan. Management options vary depending on the patient’s age and circumstances, but common treatment methods include:

  • Direct Therapy: Awareness training, auditory training, etc.
  • Environmental Modification: Improving classroom acoustics, using personal FM equipment, etc.
  • Compensatory Strategies: Practicing active listening, problem solving, journaling and more.
