AUDITORY PROCESSING DISORDER (APD)
What is Central Auditory Processing Disorder (APD)?
Central Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) is a term for a variety of disorders that affect the way the brain processes sound. Despite having normal hearing, individuals who have APD often have difficulty making sense of the sounds around them. This can result in hearing speech but trouble understanding it, especially in background noise.
What are the common signs?
- Trouble paying attention and remembering information presented verbally. May cope better with visual information
- Problems carrying out multi-step directions given verbally. May need to hear only one direction at a time
- Poor listening skills
- Needing more time to process information
- Language difficulties
- Difficulty with reading, comprehension, spelling, and vocabulary
