Auditory processing disorder is a glitch in the brain’s ability to filter and process sounds that makes it difficult (even painful) to receive, organize, and use auditory information. Some children with APD can’t filter out background noise, making it maddening to work in a busy classroom. Other children perceive sounds incorrectly, mixing up ga and da sounds, for example. And still others forget parts of a conversation or miss verbal nuances. Roughly 7 percent of all children have some type of auditory processing difficulty, but many are misdiagnosed because their symptoms look so much like ADHD.
