Concepts in cognitive neuroscience fundamental to intervention are summarized. The functional plasticity of the maturing central nervous system offers opportunity to improve auditory processing skills. A comprehensive approach to improve listening comprehension and learning in children and youth with central auditory processing disorders is outlined. The management approach emphasizes development of both specific and general problem-solving strategies in conjunction with self-regulation of strategy use.
