Auditory Processing and Language Disorders March 2020 TBC

Current Science and Clinical Practice


This 3-day comprehensive Masterclass in Auditory Processing Disorders brings together experts from across the UK and overseas to provide an update on current understanding of auditory processing disorders. The course will investigate current science and developments in clinical practice in understanding auditory processing and language disorders in both adults and children.

Course Directors: Dr Doris-Eva Bamiou & Dr Jennifer Linden

Objectives include:

  • To provide a thorough understanding of auditory processing from periphery to cortex and how this relates to clinical practice and speech difficulties in noise.

    To provide a detailed understanding of diagnostic and management issues and the specific needs of special populations with auditory processing, language and cognitive disorders and the associated clinical testing considerations.


    To provide an update on current developments of evidence-based management for clinical practice.


Themes for the 3 days are:

  • DAY 1: Current science: Evaluation of auditory processing and interface with language disorders.
  • DAY 2: Auditory processing and language disorders: New diagnostic perspectives for clinical practice.
  • DAY 3: Management of auditory processing disorders- the science and the evidence.
