Free Resource: Does My Child Have Auditory Processing Disorder?

Learn the common signs of APD, and how to distinguish them from ADHD symptoms in children.

Auditory processing disorder (APD), or Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD), is a lifelong condition that impacts the brain’s ability to filter and interpret sounds typically diagnosed in school-aged children.

Children with auditory processing disorder have normal hearing abilities, but their brains have difficulty receiving, organizing, and making sense of sound, which can impact how they listen, communicate, and learn.

Symptoms of ADHD and APD may overlap, but their root causes are unique. (ADHD is strongly tied to executive functioning deficits, while APD is not.)

In this download, you will learn the following:

  • Common signs of APD
  • Areas of auditory skill difficulty in children
  • How APD and ADHD symptoms may overlap in children
  • Who can screen patients for APD
  • Age requirement for an APD screening
  • And more!
