dc.description.abstractThe validity and feasibility of auditory processing disorder (APD) diagnostic testing through a behavioral test battery has been well established. Auditory processing evaluation is known to be lengthy and tedious. Yet, research in the area of new technology such as engaging diagnostic computerized testing is lacking. The purpose of the present study was to conduct a pilot study and case descriptive analysis to examine the use of the Feather Squadron application or app. Ten children with suspected auditory processing disorder (APD), age 8 to 15 years and older, were recruited for an evaluation with traditional tests and on a new diagnostic tablet-based app, Feather Squadron. Four participants were excluded from data analysis due to confounding factors. Using an aggregate data set of six participants, the sensitivity and specificity were both 100 %. McNemar’s tests indicated no significant difference of classification based on testing methods. Due to the small sample size and heterogeneous nature of APD, case studies were prepared to further examine the data.en_US
