Global Leader

Able Kids Foundation is a global leader in the field of central auditory processing disorder (CAPD). Our comprehensive evaluation, client-centered educational approach, and evidenced-based management program have attracted thousands of individuals from around the world.


Established as a 501(c)(3), the Foundation opened the clinic in 2006 to continue the work in CAPD that began at Colorado State University over 50 years ago. Initially recognized for its work with children, the Foundation is now recognized for serving clients of all ages, with adults becoming one of the largest age groups evaluated each year.

Extensive Training and Experience

Our audiologists receive extensive training upon joining Able Kids Foundation and have first-hand experience in seeing and coping with the impacts of CAPD. We also understand that each individual has their own story and we strive to make positive changes in all areas of their life impacted by CAPD.

Passionate About Education

Able Kids Foundation is passionate about educating our clients and families, as well as other professionals, about CAPD. Central auditory processing (CAP) challenges are common, yet very misunderstood and under diagnosed. When we have a better understanding of CAPD and the impact it can have on an individual's life, we have more compassion for others, as well as for ourselves.

Research and Evidence-Based

Research and data are the heart of the Foundation's testing and management plan. The comprehensive test battery provides objective evidence and understanding of one's CAPD. The data-driven management plan attracts clients and families who seek evidence-based solutions.


Able Kids Foundation's mission is to eliminate barriers and expand opportunities for individuals with CAPD.

Core Values

The Foundation is dedicated to service, committed to integrity, and inspired by excellence.

Client Testimonial

“We are in receipt of the ear filter and it could not be more life-altering. David wore it all day on the first day and hasn’t had to be reminded once since. His anxiety and seemingly manic behavior have almost entirely disappeared. David says, ‘Only all the positive words in every language on Earth could describe how life-changing my filter is!’”

- Parent from California

Able Kids Foundation has evaluated individuals from all 50 states and 29 countries around the world.

CAPD is common yet often misunderstood. The Foundation aspires to create more awareness and understanding of this condition and serves children, adolescents, and adults.
