Strong evidence exists to support the presence of severe auditory deficits in children with autism spectrum disorder relative to neruotypical peers in the areas of auditory attention, speech recognition, and physiological processing. This presentation will provide an overview of sensitive auditory processing assessment tools as well as evidence-based intervention strategies that may be implemented in a clinical or school setting. These strategies include one-on-one auditory training, computerized training, and the use of remote-microphone technology.
