Auditory Processing Disorder (APD), also known as central auditory processing disorder (CAPD), affects about 5% of school-aged children’s hearing. Children affected aren’t able to process what they hear in the same way because their brain does not coordinate properly with the ears. Early diagnosis is crucial, as the condition can affect a child’s speech and language leading to problems learning in school.

APD can also lead to poor self esteem in a child as they feel they cannot keep up with the normal flow of conversation or reading. If you answer yes to any of the following questions, your child might be affected by APD.
