Innovations TV Series to Feature CAPDOTS™ in Upcoming Episode, Airing on Saturday, March 18, 2017 on FOX Business.
Exploring recent advances in central auditory processing disorders.
Jupiter, FL: DMG Productions is proud to announce that it will feature CAPDOTS™ in an upcoming episode of the highly acclaimed TV series, Innovations with Ed Begley, Jr., airing on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 4:30 pm ET on FOX Business.
In this segment, Innovations will explore CAPDOTS™, an on-line auditory training system for the treatment of Central Auditory Processing Disorders. Viewers will learn about the training system, which provides evidence-based, deficit-specific intervention using current audiological neuroscience. Audiences will be educated on the therapy system’s modules, which can be selected to meet the specific needs of the CAPD individual, and can be applied selectively or in combination as indicated by the CAPD assessment results.
“Auditory processing skills are arguably the most critical and under-recognized foundational skills for learning and communication. All performance-output demands on a child first require sufficient learning and listening comprehension of inputs. Being asked to participate in the Innovations TV with Ed Begley, Jr. is a wonderful opportunity to increase the awareness, the understanding, and the importance of identifying and treating Central Auditory Processing Disorders,” said Carol Lau, Audiologist & Speech-Language Pathologist, CAPDOTS Designer. “When I originally designed CAPDOTS to address auditory processing deficits, I knew it could make a difference; I just never imagined that the ramifications could be so widespread for a child’s academic, communicative, social and psychological well-being.”
“CAPDOTS™ is a convenient, readily-available therapy program that allows audiologists and speech-language pathologists to provide formal, structured off-site auditory training to their clients,” said Seth Michaels, Producer for the Innovations series. He continued to say, “The web-based design allows for a rigorous therapy program without taxing the financial or time resources of either the clinician or the client. We look forward to enlightening audiences about the way this convenient therapy is changing the face of CAPD.”
Established in 2012, CAPDOTS provides on-line treatment programs for CAPD to external service providers and their patients. Carol Lau, the owner and operator of Sound idEARS Hearing & Listening Clinic and the designer of CAPDOTS is a dual-qualified audiologist and speech-language pathologist who takes a gestalt approach to the integration of the hearing and listening systems with verbal communication. CAPDOTS’ origins began about 20 years ago as a CD-based therapy system, which Carol loaned out to her own patients on a weekly basis. The results were both heartening and dramatic. As Carol’s clinic filled with therapy patients swapping CDs every week, and patients came from further afield, the demand for a home-based therapy program spawned CAPDOTS’ on-line versions. Carol continues to innovate and refine CAPDOTS through her continued clinical work in her busy CAPD practice.

We are excited to be the host city for the 2016 World Congress of Audiology being held in Vancouver next week on September 18th- 21st. Carol will be presenting a research poster on Auditory Middle Latency Response (AMLR) Results Pre- and Post- CAPDOTS-Integrated (CI). The AMLR test is an objective test of CAPD and our findings suggest that there is an increased auditory response, and improved inter-hemispheric and inter-aural balance after CI.
Join us on Monday, September 19th in the Junior Ballroom ABCD & Foyer during poster session 2 for Carol’s presentation.
Once again, we will be at the ASHA Convention to present the CAPDOT system. Join us at booth #1330 from November 17-19 2016 in Philadelphia!
Carol Lau presented a poster on the use of CAPDOTS-IntegratedTM with hearing-impaired adults at the March 2015 AAA Convention in San Antonio. Read the full poster here
We are excited to be attending AudiologyNOW from March 25-28. Come and visit us at Booth 376.
Are you packed and ready to go to Orlando? We are! Carol and Colin are looking forward to meeting our many QSPs at the 2014 ASHA CONVENTION – November 20th to 22nd. Come by and see us at BOOTH 1558!
Carol has also written an article on how to get the most out of auditory training with CAPD clients.
CAPDOTS will be attending the AudiologyNOW! AAA Conference in Orlando, Florida from March 26th to 28th, this time in person. It promises to be another exciting event and it will be followed by a much anticipated 2nd Global conference on CAPD “Clinical Populations with CAPD : What We Know and What Lies Ahead” on Saturday, 29th March. Stop by for a visit at our booth #2108 for a demo of CAPDOTS-Integrated and the soon-to-be released CAPDOTS-Selected. Carol will also be available to answer any of your questions. See you there!
CAPDOTS was proud to be the ultimate sponsor for the very successful ASHA Audiology Online Conference on “CAPD Clinical Practices and the Science Behind Them”. We enjoyed talks on a variety of topics from an international group of speakers which piqued our curiosity and re-inspired our enthusiasm. Virtual conferencing provides many benefits including being able to attend all the talks at times that are convenient in our busy schedules. We also welcomed many visitors to our Virtual Exhibit Booth.
CAPDOTS is delighted to be the Ultimate Sponsor for ASHA’s online audiology conference on CAPD. The conference brings together leading scientists and clinicians from around the world to give Audiologists and SLPs access to cutting-edge research and the best treatment approaches for clients coping with central auditory processing disorder (CAPD).

Our first visit to ASHA 2013 was a resounding success! We came back excited and invigorated by all the interest and questions we had at our Exhibit Booth. It was a time to meet our current service providers and to introduce ourselves to new ones. Old-fashioned, face-to-face dialogue also gave us an opportunity to clarify any issues and to get an understanding of what different clinicians require.
Many Speech Language Pathologists I spoke to have used the Differential Screening Test for Processing (DSTP) by Richard & Ferre. If your patient fails the Dichotic Digits or the Temporal Patterning subtests of the DSTP, they are a suitable candidate for CAPDOTS-Integrated (CAPDOTS-I).
CAPDOTS-I is a homogenous training program that targets very specific skills. So, unlike a typical therapy session where several goals are identified and targeted simultaneously, CAPDOTS-I only drills a single skill. However, CAPDOTS-I’s therapy implications go far and beyond that of just auditory processing.
Over and above teachers and parents reporting improvements in ability to follow multi-step directions, less auditory confusion, fewer requests for repetition – all of which are clearly auditory processing skills – they are even more excited about the changes that take place with socialization, self-confidence, self-awareness, expressive language sophistication and increased use of speech acts. This is, indeed, very exciting news!
We wish you and yours all the very best of the Holiday Season,
