Research

His research was on the assessment of children referred to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) with suspected Auditory Processing Disorder (APD). Comparison of the GOSH clinical algorithm with one of the many algorithms (various combination of 40 different tests) in the literature showed that there was no consistency in diagnostic approach. He also found that most of these children were diagnosed with neurodiversity (ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia / Dyspraxia, etc).
