In a series of articles (Schow & Chermak, 1999; Domitz & Schow, 2000; and Schow, Seikel, Chermak, & Berent, 2000) in the American Journal of Audiology, we have reinforced a model of central auditory processing (CAP or AP), which has been proposed through a major position paper by ASHA (1996) . This model is also consistent with the view of many others doing work in this area (e.g., Keith, 1986; Chermak & Musiek, 1997). Distinct aspects of auditory processing are thought to exist and to be measurable while, nevertheless, a core fundamental processing ability underlies all of these aspects. We have gathered and reported data on two separate large groups of youngsters (N = 331 and N = 81) using both exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis to see whether our findings would support this model. We found reasonable support for the model.
