Supporting children with auditory processing disorder

Campbell, N.G. (2011) Supporting children with auditory processing disorder British Journal of School Nursing, 6, (6), pp. 273-277.

Record type: Article


The term 'Auditory Processing Disorder (APD)' refers to difficulty processing what we hear; it has an estimated prevalence of 2-3% in children. Diagnosis and management of APD requires a multi-disciplinary approach, given the potential impact of APD on listening, communication and academic outcomes, and considering the frequent comorbidity of APD with related language and learning difficulties. This article provides an overview of the controversy surrounding the definition of APD, the prevalence of the disorder, difficulties associated with APD, the value of a multi-disciplinary approach and finally the management of APD.
