What is Auditory Processing Disorder?
Auditory Processing is what your brain does with what your ear hears.
Many people have processing difficulties. Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) can be diagnosed in childhood. However, everyone’s abilities decrease as they age.
Reported problems are “I can hear, but not understand,” “I can’t participate in group conversations,” or “the background noise is louder than the person I am trying to hear.”
