Speaker:  Harvey Dillon
Date: Tuesday 20 February
Time: 11:00am – 12:15pm
Location: Tutorial room 1.620, Level 1, AHH

This talk will review the problem of correctly diagnosing various forms of auditory processing disorders, including the difficulties involved in separating auditory deficits from attention, memory and language deficits.  Successful and unsuccessful examples will be given, and a general solution outlined.  The talk will include a description of several lines of potential future research that should materially improve the accuracy of diagnosis and effectiveness of remediation for auditory processing disorders.
