APD

The BSA Auditory Processing Disorder Special Interest Group

 

Established in October 2003

 

What is an Auditory Processing Disorder (APD)?


APD is characterised by poor perception of sounds, has its origins in impaired neural function, and impacts on everyday life primarily through a reduced ability to listen, and so respond appropriately to sounds.


There are three categories of APD:


1. Developmental APD: Cases presenting in childhood with normal hearing (i.e. normal audiometry) and no other known aetiology or potential risk factors. Some of these people may retain their APD into adulthood.

2. Acquired APD: Cases associated with a known post-natal event (e.g. neurological trauma, infection) that could plausibly explain the APD.

3. Secondary APD: Cases where APD occurs in the presence, or as a result, of peripheral hearing impairment. This includes transient hearing impairment after its resolution (e.g. glue ear or surgically corrected otosclerosis).
