20Q: CAPD - Fundamentals

View Course Details Please note: exam questions are subject to change.

1.  CAPD:
  1. manifests as deficits in perceptual processing of auditory stimuli in the central nervous system
  2. can affect individuals across the lifespan
  3. occurs frequently with other co-morbidities
  4. all of the above
2.  According to the author, the term CAPD is preferred over APD because:
  1. CAPD is a peripheral disorder, occurring mainly in the cochlea
  2. CAPD is treated with centrally-acting medications
  3. the perceptual processes that make up central auditory processing occur in the brain, testing involves challenging the central auditory nervous system, and CAPD is the term used in ICD-10
  4. all of the above
3.  The majority of CAPD in children is classified as:
  1. acquired
  2. neuromorphological
  3. syndromic
  4. cerebrovascular
4.  Causes of acquired CAPD in children include all of the following EXCEPT:
  1. traumatic brain injury
  2. seizure disorder
  3. polymicrogyria
  4. cerebrovascular events
5.  Neuroplasticity:
  1. Refers to surgery that restores synaptic connections in the brain and central nervous system for people with CAPD
  2. is a type of pharmaceutical therapy to regenerate brain tissue damaged from anoxic episodes or cerebrovascular trauma
  3. results from activation of previously inactive neuronal tissue and/or improved neural synchrony, and development of more efficient synaptic connections within the brain secondary to stimulation and learning
  4. is not possible after the age of 13
6.  Which of the following statements is true regarding CAPD in adults?
  1. CAPD does not occur in adults; it only occurs in children
  2. CAPD may be acquired or the result of a childhood neurodevelopmental cause
  3. CAPD cannot be treated in adults since brain development is complete
  4. CAPD symptoms typically improve with age
7.  All of the following are symptoms of CAPD EXCEPT:
  1. language processing issues
  2. trouble localizing a sound source
  3. difficulty understanding speech in background noise and reverberant environments
  4. ringing or buzzing in the ears
8.  Risk factors for CAPD include:
  1. prenatal drug exposure
  2. certain metabolic disorders
  3. chronic otitis media
  4. all of the above
9.  Children with CAPD in schools:
  1. automatically qualify for services under IDEA in all states
  2. may qualify for services in the Other Health Impaired disability category in some states, due to a recent ruling
  3. never qualify for services
  4. generally outperform their peers academically
10.  To provide IEP services for a child with CAPD requires a multidisciplinary special education evaluation that shows:
  1. the child indeed has CAPD
  2. the child's CAPD has an academic impact
  3. the child requires specially designed instruction
  4. all of the above
