Why Does my Child Have Trouble Hearing in Noise?

Many different disorders and conditions may cause hearing-in-noise problems. In fact, difficulties listening in background noise may be the result of such wide-ranging issues as attention deficits, learning or language disorders, motivational issues, and - of course - auditory disorders such as hearing loss or central auditory processing disorders (CAPD).

The only way to determine the best approach to helping an individual with this type of difficulty is to ensure that an accurate diagnosis as to the cause for the listening difficulty is obtained. Then an exploration of options, including perhaps suggestion for assistive listening devices, can be made.
