Neuroaudiology investigates the relationships between auditory information processing, brain functioning and human behavior. Children, adolescents and adults may have changes in underlying auditory processing or in comorbidity with other disorders. Central auditory processing disorders can be defined as difficulties in one or more auditory skills that are required in everyday communication processes. It is necessary to evaluate, diagnose and intervene in order to improve the quality of health and social and academic interaction of these children, adolescents and adults. The objective of this project was to create a neuroaudiology outpatient clinic for assessment and diagnosis of children, adolescents and adults with complaints of hearing difficulties, aiming to contribute to the understanding and resolution of the intervention of these disorders. In this outpatient clinic all patients perform peripheral audiological assessment procedures (pure tone audiometry, acoustic immittance and logoaudiometry) and central auditory processing (psychoacoustic, electrophysiological and electroacoustic). There is integration between teaching, research and extension activities.
