Would you say that despite having no hearing loss, your loved one doesn’t seem able to process the information he or she hears, in the same way as others?
There’s a chance that they have (Central) Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD), a complex problem affecting school-aged children and adults. In CAPD cases, the individual's ears and brain don’t fully coordinate and so they can’t process auditory information normally.
Symptoms of CAPD range from mild to severe and take many different forms. It is important to identify and manage these auditory deficits early on so that children with CAPD do not experience speech and language delays and other significant academic problems and adults can fully function in the working world.
