Purpose The purpose of this letter is to comment on an article by Yathiraj and Vanaja (2018) titled "Criteria to Classify Children as Having Auditory Processing Disorders." Conclusions Although there is a need to diagnose auditory processing disorders in school-age children, the criteria recommended by Yathiraj and Vanaja (2018) are not empirically derived. Continued research is needed to clearly define an auditory processing disorder in this population and develop highly sensitive and specific tests to diagnose the disorder.
