What is Auditory Processing Disorder?

Auditory Processing Disorder (APD), is a disorder of the auditory system that makes it difficult for one to hear small sound differences in words. With ADP, the brain doesn’t hear sounds in the usual way.

ADP can present with difficulty speaking, reading, writing, and spelling. ADP can also affect the ability to process what others are saying and being able to respond quickly. People diagnosed with ADP can have difficulty with following conversations, remembering spoken directions, discerning where a sound came from, and understanding what people are saying especially if it is loud or more than one person is talking.

The cause of ADP is unknown. It usually begins in childhood but can develop at a later age. The prevalence of ADP is between 2%-7% of children, with boys being more likely than girls to have it.
