    It is important to keep in mind that auditory processing disorder is a broad term for a whole range of specific difficulties and this is why a multidisciplinary approach is required for both assessment and treatment. Areas I commonly have worked on as a speech pathologist have included optimising the listening environment for a child at home/school, educating family members, teachers and others for how to support a child with APD, specific strategies, use of a variety of aides (eg FM systems), skills training for areas such as sound awareness, discrimination, segmenting and blending for literacy. APD is a complex array of difficulties and therefore there is not a simple one size fits all approach to treatment.
