It is said that central auditory processing disorder(CAPD) is to hearing what CVI is to vision—the ears may be functioning but sound is not reaching the brain in a way that is meaningful. Many of the risk factors for CVI and CAPD are the same, therefore some children with multiple disabilities who are diagnosed with CVI may also have CAPD. Unfortunately, CAPD cannot be diagnosed in young children and CAPD assessments in older children require language acquisition. This training will provide strategies that support students with CAPD but have also been proven effective for all students.
