What is Auditory Processing Disorder?

What is Auditory Processing Disorder?

It is an old problem that has new legs. It is a neurological based listening disorder where the ear may hear normally but the brain cannot or does not process the information accurately. According to the position paper by the American Speech Language and Hearing Association, APD is best viewed as a deficit in the neural processing of auditory stimuli that may coexist with but is not the result of dysfunction in other modalities. It may lead to or be associated with difficulties in higher order language, learning and communication functions.
