This webinar will provide a rationale for early testing and the instruments available to identify youngsters at risk.

Presenter: Donna Geffner, PhD, CCC-SLP/A

There is controversy over the age at which a CAPD can be diagnosed in children. The notion that one has to wait until age 7 or 8 is unfounded. Evidence is strong that CAPD can be identified earlier than age 7 for the purposes of treatment and management. This webinar will provide a rationale for early testing and the instruments available to identify youngsters at risk. Case studies will be presented that show that early identification leads to effective intervention and better academic outcomes.
