Auditory processing disorder (APD) is a general term for hearing disorders in which the ears process sound normally but the hearing centres and circuits of the brain don’t always process incoming information sufficiently quickly or accurately. APD is not detected by standard hearing tests. People with APD can hear but they sometimes have trouble understanding what they hear. APD is a prevalent and under-recognised hearing problem that is a major underlying cause of learning difficulties.
