>Ramada Plaza Hotel, Greenville. North Carolina
>Sponsored by Department of Communications Sciences and Disorders, 
>East Carolina University
>Co-sponsored by Eastern Area Health Education Center
>The symposium will focus on the key areas of auditory processing
including: neuroscience foundations, identification and management, as well
as current and future trends. Symposium content will be directed toward
both speech-language pathologists and audiologists.
>Learning Outcomes
>Following the symposium, participants will be able to:
>1.  Describe the functional anatomy of the central nervous system
>2.  Explain the neuroscience view of the auditory processing of speech
>3.  Describe the importance of brain plasticity to auditory training
>4.  Interpret the behavioral and electrophysiological approach to the
assessment of CAP
>5.  Discuss practical approaches to the use of auditory training for CAPD
>6.  Identify the relationships that exist between CAPD and language learning
>7.  Discuss the metalinguistic and cognative strategies in the management

>Guest Faculty
>Gail Chermak, PhD, is a Professor of Audiology and Chair of the Department
of Speech and Hearing Services at ~ashington State University. She chaired
the ASHA Ad Hoc Committee on Central Auditory Processing and served as a
member of the ASHA Task Force on Central Auditory Processing Consensus
>Sandy Friel-Patti, PhD, is an Associate Professor at the University of
Texas at Dallas. Her research interests embrace issues in anguage
development in both typical and atypical groups of children. Research
topics include a longitudina investigation of the effects of early middle
ear disease on developing speech and language, mother-child discourse, and
play interactions of preschool children.
>James F. Jerger, PhD, is a Research Scientist at the University of Texas
at Dallas and formerly Professor and Head, Division of Audiology and Speech
Pathology, at Baylor College of Medicine, Texas Medical Center. He has
devoted much of his professional career to the study of auditory perceptual
disorder. His recent interest has focused on the topographic brain mapping
of auditory evoked potentials, especially even-related potentials.
>Frank E. Musiek, PhD, is a Professor of otolaryngology in the Department
of Surgery, as well as, Professor of Neurology in the Department of
Medicine at Dartmouth Medical School. Dr. Musiek is also Director of
Audiology at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, NH.

Dalhousie University, HaIifax, NS, Canada.  An auditory neuroscientist, Dr.
Phillips has strong interest in brain encodes auditory information and in
the perceptual difficulties that occur following cochlear and brain injury.
>Christine Sloan, PhD, SLP(C), is a Speech~Language Pathologist in the
Annapolis Valley Regional School Board, Annapolis Valley, NS, Canada. She
has a long standing interest in the area of auditory processing disorder
and it's impact on language development.
