About us

Traditional auditory processing testing in a clinic can be time consuming and expensive, and isn’t an option for many people.

We’ve decided to change that.

We offer professional , convenient and affordable auditory processing testing online to make this important assessment more accessible.

Our story

How Sonic Learning started

Our clinic started almost two decades ago as a small independent audiology clinic in Perth, Western Australia. We’re now a fully online clinic with team members across Australia. Although we no longer provide face-to-face assessment services, we specialise in offering online auditory processing assessment and treatment services.

How we help APD

Our auditory processing test is fully online, and validated by an audiologist and a speech pathologist. Our comprehensive test assesses 10 areas of auditory processing.

It only takes 30 minutes to complete on your iPad, and you’ll receive a comprehensive, personalised report, along with recommendations for treatment.

Our founder, Claire

I joined Sonic Learning back when we were Sonic Hearing, a small independent hearing clinic.

I worked alongside my brother, who was one of the first audiologists in WA to test for Auditory Processing Disorder (APD).

Tina, Speech Pathologist

I have been with Sonic Learning since 2007. I worked alongside audiologists for many years conducting face-to-face Auditory Processing Assessments with kids and adults. My goals are to provide Australia’s most convenient online auditory processing assessment as well as the clearest, most useful report. I especially enjoy helping people get the clarity they have been looking for so they can move forwards to overcome their learning challenges.
