AUDITORY PROCESSING

Auditory Processing disorders are deficits in the information processing of audible sounds not attributed to hearing or intellectual impairments. Simply stated, auditory processing involves what we DO with what we hear. Sounds are heard, but there is a problem processing or understanding what is said particularly when the language used is complex, spoken rapidly, or is lengthy, and when there are visual distractions or competing noises.

Children with auditory processing difficulties are usually easily distracted, unusually bothered by loud or sudden noises, are upset by noisy environments, and have difficulty following directions. Abstract information and verbal (word) math problems are difficult for these children as well. These children are often regarded as disorganized, forgetful, or behavior problems due to their lack of ability to pay attention.
