Many individuals on the autism spectrum experience auditory processing challenges but too often these challenges may go unrecognized and/or untreated, presenting difficulties and frustrations for the individual with autism as well as family members, educators, therapists and others. Recognizing auditory processing difficulties and disorders is the first step to a treatment plan that works to ameliorate these challenges. Louise Levy treats adults and children and has extensive experience in working with individuals affected by autism with auditory processing challenges. She is one of the most highly regarded pediatric audiologists in the Tri-State area. She continues to develop skills in all audiology-related technologies, including hearing aids and assistive listening devices.
