What are Auditory Processing Disorders?

Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) is also known as Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD). Children have normal hearing, but experience difficulty processing information that they hear. APD is diagnosed by an audiologist; however speech-language professionals may provide therapy to assist with difficulties that coincide with APD.

Auditory Processing Disorder becomes more apparent when trying to process speech within a noisy environment. Symptoms of APD include but are not limited to; difficulty following directions and comprehending verbal information. A multi-disciplinary approach is recommended to rule out any other disorders as these symptoms are common with disorders other than Auditory Processing Disorder.
