Auditory Processing

Auditory Processing

APD defined
One in every 100 children lives with an auditory processing disorder (APD), a condition characterized by a confusing ability to hear but not listen well, difficulty processing language appropriately, and frustration in communication.

Children with APD may struggle in home and classroom communication situations, particularly in noisy environments or when information is delivered in a fast-paced manner.

APD can also result in speech and language difficulties, for example articulation problems, difficulty with grammar and problems sequencing auditory information. Learning to read with untreated APD is often impossible.

Does your child exhibit the signs of APD?
CAPD testing at CHC in NYCHas difficulty following instructions
Struggles hearing in noisy environments
Constantly says “what?” or “huh?”
Seems distracted or inattentive
Has difficulty learning to read
Mishears words
Has difficulty telling a story in sequence
Struggles to find words
APD diagnosis and treatment
If your child has one or more of these signs, we suggest you discuss the symptoms with your child’s physician, and, if recommended, follow up with appropriate testing.

The good news is that most kids who receive treatment for APD become much more effective listeners. They gain confidence and often thrive in the classroom.
