Auditory processing disorder (APD) has been found to co-occur with other disorders, including Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This study was conducted to obtain a better understanding of the auditory processing abilities in adults with ASD. Seven adults with ASD and their age/gender matched neuro-typical controls were evaluated using a standard APD test battery. The test battery used will be described. Comparisons of the adults with ASD as compared to the age/gender matched controls will be provided.
