It’s important to note that APD is not the only type of language and/or communication deficit. If you are looking for answers, a good place to start is your family pediatrician. From there, the pediatrician should be able to guide and direct you to the appropriate specialist. They may suggest having an evaluation or screening done by a speech and language pathologist or they may refer you directly to an audiologist. Audiologists are the only professionals that can diagnose APD.
