Auditory Processing Disorder (APD)

Auditory Processing Disorder (abbreviated to ‘APD’) is a condition where, despite no hearing loss, a person cannot understand the sounds they hear. They may have difficulties with:

  • Understanding when listening
  • Self-expression using speech
  • Reading
  • Remembering instructions
  • Understanding spoken messages
  • Staying focused
