the field of audiology
At Little Listeners, one of our objectives is to act as a resource center and provide helpful information in the field of audiology for patients and their parents. While the web can be a good resource, it can be difficult to find articles that are easy to read and not overly technical.
With that in mind, below are several articles that have proven useful to our community, including discussions on hearing versus listening and how to recognize Auditory Processing Disorder (APD). Just click on the link to open and read and/or to download for future reference.
