Auditory Processing Disorder

Auditory Processing Disorder

Auditory Processing Disorder, or APD, affects between 3-5% of school-age children. At its essence, a child with APD does not understand what they are hearing in the same way as another child might. The brain and the ears aren’t fully cooperating.


This can unfortunately affect speech development, confidence, behaviour, and is common for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. It’s important that ADP is addressed early on.


Here is a self-assessment to find out whether or not your child MAY have APD. Ask yourself and your partner the following questions:


  • Does my child often mishear sounds and words?

  • Are noisy environments overwhelming when my child is trying to listen?

  • Does my child's listening behaviors and performance improve in quieter settings?

  • Does my child have trouble following verbal directions, whether simple or complicated?

  • Does my child have trouble with spelling or phonics?

  • Are verbal (word) math problems hard for my child?

  • Are conversations hard for my child to follow?

APD is treatable, and a child’s development can return to normalcy with successful implementation of the Johansen IAS program. If you suspect that your child may have APD, or you simply have questions about Nenagh Neurofuse, and our programs, let’s talk.
