This case was selected to highlight the importance of the test battery approach in the assessment of a child with auditory processing deficits. The utility of behavioral, electrophysiologic, acoustic immittance, and evoked otoacoustic emission procedures, as well as the problems associated with interpreting these multiple measures with differing results, is discussed. This case was confounded by the possibility that both peripheral and central auditory problems existed. The outcome stresses the importance of examining the results of multiple auditory measures in the determination of the site of lesion and habilitation strategies.
