|Abstract:||It was with great concern that we read David Moore’s editorial on auditory processing disorder (APD; Moore 2018). Moore begins his editorial noting that in a “highly detailed critique” of a recent submission on early diagnosis of APD, two of three reviewers questioned whether an earlier diagnosis would be useful “because the status of APD is so controversial” or “difficult to verify.” Moore uses these anonymous reviewers’ comments to justify, based on a few selected papers, several of which are opinion papers rather than research or systematic reviews, that, effective immediately, “articles that either implicitly or explicitly assume APD as a single diagnostic characteristic of the auditory system likely will not be considered for publication.” This Editorial Board policy was adopted without presenting research (and perspectives) that present compelling counter-arguments that would refute such a policy.|
