Abstract

Auditory training (AT) for the treatment of auditory processing disorders (APD) has generated considerable interest recently. There is emerging evidence that well conceived AT programs can improve higher auditory function. The plasticity of the brain underlies the success of AT. This article reviews brain plasticity and the role of plasticity in AT outcomes, and highlights key studies that provide insight into the clinical use of AT for APD.
