Does my child need a written referral to have their auditory processing skills assessed?

Parents, medical professionals, allied health professionals and teachers may all refer a child for an Auditory Processing assessment where the child is

  • at least 6 years of age (limited testing available at 6 years of age, more comprehensive testing available once a child turns 7 years of age)
  • there are no known/suspected concerns regarding the child’s intelligence

By using a two stage appointment process any children found to be inappropriate to assess for an Auditory Processing disorder will be identified at their first appointment. Formal written referral is not necessary.

Little Ears welcomes any enquiries and would be delighted to provide information training / professional development workshops on request.
