COVID-19 Update: Able Kids Foundation is open and seeing clients. Our office and staff will be maintaining the recommended guidelines for the safety of everyone. In addition, we ask the following:

1. Clients who are experiencing or have recently experienced fever, cough, or shortness of breath will need to reschedule their appointment. If you have recently tested positive for COVID-19, you will also be asked to reschedule your appointment.  The same holds true if anyone accompanying the client to their appointment is experiencing/has recently experienced COVID-19 symptoms or has tested positive for COVID-19. All clients will be asked to complete a COVID-19 questionnaire and consent form upon their arrival.

2. All staff will be wearing masks. Per the State of Colorado, Larimer County, City of Fort Collins, and Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) regulations, all clients must enter the building wearing a cloth face covering or mask (including children) and must keep it on at all times unless instructed by your audiologist. If your child has difficulty wearing a mask or face covering, please call the office prior to your appointment to discuss options. Please do not arrive early to your appointment. Please call the office at your appointment time and a staff member will meet you outside and escort your child (or the individual being evaluated) into our office.

3. We are limiting the amount of people in the building and our office. Parents will be asked to wait outside or in their car while their child is being tested. The testing portion should take approximately one hour to complete. We will not hesitate to get you should we need you. To maintain social distancing recommendations and to keep groups of people to 10 and below, we ask that only one parent accompany their child to the appointment. We ask that adults come alone. We realize the inconvenience that this may cause for families so please call or email to discuss options if you must bring other siblings or family members to the appointment. Review of testing results will be completed by telephone following your appointment.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us at or call 970-226-2253. We look forward to seeing you soon and hope you and your families have stayed safe and healthy during these unique times.




Welcome to the Able Kids Foundation

The Able Kids Foundation improves lives and expands opportunities for individuals facing communication barriers through focused work on the identification and management of central auditory processing disorder (CAPD). The Foundation was established to continue the work that began at Colorado State University in the 1970s on central auditory processing disorder. Children and adults seen at the Foundation typically have excellent hearing but have difficulty understanding auditory information when in a less than quiet listening environment. Our testing and management program has attracted individuals over 3,000 individuals from 27 countries and 49 states since the Foundation’s inception in 2006. Clients of all ages are referred to Able Kids Foundation by parents and educators, as well as physicians, audiologists, psychologists, occupational therapists, optometrists, speech and language pathologists, and other professionals. We are grateful for the support of local and national organizations who further our mission of improving lives and expanding opportunities for individuals with auditory challenges. Their generosity anchors the Sponsorship Assistance Program which helps offset financial barriers to children and adults in need of central auditory processing evaluation and management solutions.
