Auditory Processing Disorders

 

An individual with APD is unable to attend to, discriminate, recognize, or understand auditory information and therefore, has trouble making sense out of what is heard. APD does not describe a single deficit, but encompasses a variety of functions. It is important to point out that individuals with APD may have normal hearing sensitivity, i.e. sounds are loud enough to hear, but the individuals are unable to successfully use auditory information.
