Abstract:

An Auditory Processing Disorder can present itself in a few ways. Whether it is a student's primary diagnosis or part of an individual’s more global problem, it is important to understand how various subtypes of APD adversely affect learning and daily living skills. This knowledge and understanding influences our treatment techniques and environmental modifications. It is also important to understand the role of attention and memory, to help us understand how APD can coexist with other disorders and learning disabilities.
