COVID-19 Update: Beginning Monday, March 23, 2020 in an effort to support the efforts of public health officials, the Able Kids Foundation will temporarily close our clinic. The well-being of our clients and staff are our top priority. We are in the process of contacting upcoming scheduled families and will provide updates as we are able. Should you have any questions, please reach out to us at or call 970-226-2253.


We wish you and your family well during this difficult time. We look forward to seeing you and welcoming you back to the Foundation again.




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 one-of-a-kind testing and management program has attracted 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.
