Note: A summary of this tool was published in the 2004 Journal of Education Audiology. It’s starting to be a little dated, but this was an excellent issue to get because the entire issue was devoted to APD. This journal is the official publication of the Educational Audiology Association. Unfortunately, this is a professional member’s journal and the publisher does not provide access to articles online. You may of course contact the publisher to purchase a copy or read a library copy of the issue.
