Course Syllabus

CAPD is a disorder in which the brain has difficulty processing auditory information. In other words, a person's ability to understand what was heard. Huh? What? How many times have you heard that from your students? Are the same students saying that time and time again? Children with CAPD exhibit difficulty attending, following directions, as well as remembering and comprehending spoken information. When directions are given verbally, these children may not enact them correctly. When answering comprehension questions, they may give you an odd answer because they misinterpreted the question. When told to do the odd math problems, they may complete the even numbers instead. When the brain isn't properly processing incoming information, output is going to be affected causing these students to make countless errors. By taking this class, participants will have a better understanding of this disorder, how it is diagnosed and treated, and classroom modifications/teaching strategies that will enable these children to be more successful within the school environment. (Speech Language Pathologists can expect resource lists of tests, reference materials, and suggested therapy materials to expand their toolbox.)
