About Dr. Ferre
Dr. Ferre, a nationally recognized expert on central auditory processing disorders (CAPD), has over 25 years experience providing evaluation and treatment of CAPD to children and adults. She established her practice in 1988, becoming one of the first audiologists in the nation to open a practice devoted exclusively to the evaluation and treatment of auditory processing disorders and has provided these services at her Oak Park office for over 16 years. In addition to her clinical practice, she is an adjunct faculty member of Northwestern and Rush Universities, teaching graduate classes in assessment and management of CAPD. She also has provided consultation on auditory processing to school districts and education departments in Illinois, Wisconsin, California, and Hawaii.
Her pioneering research in this area led to the development of the Bellis-Ferre model, currently one of the most widely used models for interpreting central auditory processing test results. Most recently, she co-authored a widely used screening test for processing disorders.
She has published extensively in professional journals and written chapters for collegiate texts and has given over 200 presentations on CAPD to school districts, related professionals, speech-language-hearing conferences, and parent support groups at the local, state, national and international levels.
