Groups and Programs



Pathways serves two main purposes. It is a column relaying review information on topics related to CAPD and Neuroaudiology and it is a society for those interested in central auditory disorders that meets on regular basis to discuss relevant issues. It can be assessed here.
For those who are interested in joining the Pathways Society please contact Cydney Fox at

Pathways Society 

The Pathways Society has been developed to provide a forum at major meetings such as AAA and ASHA, for individuals interested in discussing current issues related to (Central) Auditory Processing Disorders. All individuals with an interest in auditory processing disorders are welcome to attend these meetings and become a member. Clinicians, scientists and students are encouraged to attend and make their opinions, ideas and questions known. We hope to develop informal meetings that will allow the advancement in (C)APD by sharing information about common concerns and advances in the field. 


(C)APD Boot Camp

This past year, we had to skip the CAPD boot camp due to a foot injury. This intensive program is usually scheduled at the beginning of the year here at the University of Arizona so keep posted as that time approaches.  The boot camps can also be conducted at your own facility, if you wish to sponsor one. This requires planning to tailor the workshop to your facilities needs and interests. Contact
