I think it is a good idea to have an up-to-date record of any auditory processing deficits you may have.
Being the link between the sounds we hear, and our understanding of the meaning of the sound, auditory processing skills are an important aspect of a student’s learning experience. The good news is that most universities now offer many resources that will assist students with hearing or listening difficulties. Recorded lectures, for example, are now widely employed across faculties and allow the student to listen to lecture content in quiet and at their own pace. There is also a greater move towards interactive online course content

that you may find beneficial. Adult auditory processing assessments are not offered as commonly as those for children, but are available. I recommend you contact your local audiologist. As it is a specialised service you may need to make a few enquiries before you find a practice able to help. Your audiologist may also be able to recommend assistive strategies or a rehabilitation program to strengthen your auditory processing skills. Adult auditory processing assessments are offered at the University of Melbourne Audiology clinic (www.umac. org.au). This includes a comprehensive assessment of the skills required for effective listening to speech, particularly in noisy environments. Your Disability Liaison Unit will require a full report, so make sure that is included in the assessment when you are making your enquiries.
