Northwest Auditory Processing Clinic
Northwest Auditory Processing Clinic is pleased to offer Auditory Processing
Disorder (APD) diagnostic evaluations, treatment, and advocacy for children and

Auditory Processing  is “what the brain
does with what the ear hears.”
Our Philosophy

APD, also referred to as central auditory processing disorder (CAPD), is diagnosed
by Carol A. Killingsworth, Au.D, and Liz Zeitlin, M.A., audiologists with specialized
training in the evaluation of central auditory function.  Our goals for each individual
are accomplished by diagnosis coupled with a treatment/therapy regime targeted to
remediate the identified auditory processing deficits.  A battery of normed tests is
essential to assess the six areas of potential processing deficits, yielding a profile
that outlines auditory strengths and weaknesses.  The backbone for our
recommendations, accommodations, and remediation is the identification of specific
deficit areas. Our audiologists identify treatment/therapy plans to assist each
individual in developing improved auditory processing abilities, which can be
implemented at our clinic.

Because it is vitally important to gather information about a child’s abilities across a
wide variety of functional domains, we use a team approach to assess auditory
processing abilities. The collection and assessment of medical history,
developmental milestones, and observations from both home and classroom
settings allow us to ascertain cognitive skills, receptive and expressive speech and
language abilities, as well as listening and learning behavior.  Information from a
child’s speech/language pathologist and psychologist are integral to the APD
