At Clearly Hearing, we recognise that auditory processing disorder can significantly impact various aspects of an adult's life, including communication, learning, and overall quality of life.
With our auditory processing disorder test for adults, we aim to provide accurate and reliable results that will serve as a foundation for developing tailored treatment plans.
Our ear consists of three parts: the outer ear, the middle ear, and the inner ear. When sound comes in, it hits the ear canal, makes the eardrum vibrate, and then moves through the middle ear with the help of these three tiny hearing bones. After that, it travels into the inner ear, which is filled with fluid. The fluid's movement in the cochlea excites the hair cells in your inner ear, sending nerve impulses to the brain through the auditory nerve. The brain, being the master interpreter, turns these impulses into the music we call sound.
But with APD, the journey goes smoothly until it reaches the brain. That's where the confusion kicks in—understanding or recognising the sound becomes a bit of a puzzle, especially with things like speech.
APD varies from person to person, creating a spectrum of difficulties. Some individuals might find it more challenging than others. APD can also come with other conditions like dyslexia, language processing issues, attention problems, and a forgetful memory, making matters even worse
The origins of auditory processing disorder (APD) remain somewhat of a mystery in the medical world. Many studies point to genetics as the cause of APD, with parents occasionally sharing similar struggles during their youthful days. Another clue takes us to childhood ear infections, where sometimes the brain wires itself differently, causing a less effective relay of message signals between cells.
Numbers-wise, we're estimating that around three to five per cent of individuals worldwide experience APD to varying degrees.
ADP is generally diagnosed in childhood when parents suspect their child isn't catching all the auditory signals properly, but it can also develop in adults. While standard hearing tests may fail to diagnose ADP, Auditory Processing Disorder Testing, emerges as a reliable method.
Early detection helps in developing effective treatment strategies for managing ADP.
When it comes to auditory processing disorder (APD), it's important to note that not everyone with APD requires treatment, but for those who do, there are various solutions available. The first step lies in recognising your unique cause of ADP. That's where our healthcare team steps in, crafting a personalised plan to navigate this auditory journey.
● Hearing aids: These modern marvels go beyond amplifying sound. They act like an intelligent filter, reducing background noise and focusing on the important stuff. We can even programme them per your preferences and personalise the sound environment for your specific needs, making crystal-clear conversion even in a bustling marketplace.
● Frequency Modulated (FM) Systems: These systems create a dedicated audio pathway, transmitting the speaker's voice directly to your hearing aid and cutting through background noise. They act like your personal translator in a chaotic concert or meeting, ensuring you catch every word.
● Auditory training: When you undergo an Auditory Processing Disorder Test for adults in our clinic, depending on your result, we can tailor exercises and activities that will sharpen your ability to differentiate sounds, track their direction, and even decipher speech amidst distractions based on your unique needs. These exercises strengthen your auditory processing system and help you tackle any listening challenge effectively.
● Speech-language therapy: This goes beyond just hearing sounds; it focuses on understanding the language code. Using this approach, we help you decipher subtle differences in sounds that change meaning, like "bat" and "bet." This training empowers your brain to interpret language accurately, making conversations smoother and more engaging.
These are like interactive games for your ears! Here, we use various software programs to put your auditory skills to the test in a fun and motivating way. You can think of it as a personalised brain gym, where you level your sound-processing abilities through playful challenges and rewarding progress.
Our auditory processing disorder test for adults or children can help assess the extent of your APD and help us devise a plan that addresses your concerns effectively.
