Children at risk for auditory processing deficits can begin displaying difficulties processing and using language at a very early age (before 3).
By the time these children reach preschool age (3+ years) they may present with obvious signs and symptoms of language processing deficits, which may require further screening and intervention.
This is why I created an Auditory Processing Checklist for Preschool Children 3:0-5:11 Years of Age. It’s aim is to assist speech language pathologists (SLPs) with determining whether the client presents with auditory processing deficits which require further follow up (e.g., screening, comprehensive language processing assessment, etc.). The SLP should provide this form to both teacher and caregiver/s to fill out to ensure that the deficit areas are consistent across all settings and people.
