This is a commentary on three key aspects of the management of central auditory processing disorders in children. It is an update on some selected approaches for the management of auditory processing problems. Auditory training techniques that are theoretically based and for which empirical data are emerging are addressed. The second part of our commentary deals with methods of enhancing acoustic speech signals. Discussions on clear speech, acoustic modifications of the listening environment, and the utilization of assistive listening devices are presented. The final part of the article reviews linguistic and cognitive interventions for people with auditory processing problems. Topics in this section include approaches to facilitate phonological awareness, vocabulary building, prosodic feature recognition, and use of metacognitive abilities.
