Auditory Processing Disorder

The latest APD Guidelines.

Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) is a difficult disorder to diagnose. 

For those who have APD, their ear "hears," but the brain has trouble processing the signal, and translating it into useful information.

 

This can make it difficult for those with APD to follow a conversation, especially in noisy or overwhelming environments.
