To all,

While it is reasonable to have doubts about the insurance industry's
lobbying against the validity of treatments they would rather not pay
for, the analysis by Aetna of CAPD and treatments advised for it is
worth a look.  Of course their stance might make one want to learn more
about the opposing views in this controversial area.

For more information:

do a google search for

Scientific Learning - the company that developed Fast Forward

Fast Forward - a computer program addressing listening skills

In my own work (NeuroNet Therapy Program), I used a neural network
approach to remediation of auditory information processing disorders.
NeuroNet uses rhythmic integration of vestibular, auditory and visual
perception to increase neural synchrony in the neural representation of
perception and movement.
