When we hear someone speaking, we use auditory processing skills to interpret the message correctly. This is a neurological function that requires attention and coordination between our ears (where we receive the sound) and our brains (where we interpret the sound). If auditory processing speeds are too slow or impaired, the auditory signal that we are receiving (e.g. someone speaking) won’t be interpreted correctly and it may be difficult to understand what someone is saying. An Auditory Processing Disorder (APD), also known as a Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD), may be appear worse in places with noisy backgrounds such as sports events, playgrounds, or parties. The following may be indicative of poor auditory processing skills:

  • Easily distracted and/or difficulty focusing
  • Directions need to be broken down into small parts or repeated several times
  • Not remembering number sequences correctly, like phone numbers
  • Difficulty following along conversation, especially in loud or noisy places
  • Difficulty recalling details from conversations or read-aloud stories
