Over 80 clinicians, parents, and local educators gathered for Dr. Jeanane Ferre’s Keynote on Understanding The “Process” Of Auditory Processing on Friday, May 18th at EvergreenHealth Auditorium in Kirkland, WA. The educational event was sponsored by Evergreen Speech & Hearing Clinic for Better Hearing & Speech Month.
Dr. Ferre is a nationally recognized expert in the field of (Central) Auditory Processing Disorders – (C)APD – in children and adults. She is an adjunct faculty member of Northwestern and Rush Universities. Her pioneering research led to the development of the Bellis-Ferre model for testing and interpretation of (C)APD (the model used at Evergreen Speech & Hearing Clinic).
Dr. Ferre’s presentation on the evaluation and treatment of (C)APD in children and adults, focused on the subtypes of auditory processing disorder with patient examples from her 35 years of experience. Based on the results of testing she outlined the importance of deficit-specific intervention including remediation and management for (C)APD.
