Central auditory processing disorder is common and often misunderstood.
Individuals with CAPD are often misunderstood and told to "try harder." They may even be placed into categories that are incorrect such as lazy, unmotivated, rude, emotionally sensitive, and/or noncompliant.
Individuals with sensory challenges cannot try harder to ignore the feel of an itchy tag or wool sweater, just as an individual with CAPD cannot try harder to understand and focus.
Dad lost ear filter. Mom cried for two days. Dad felt so bad he agreed to adopt a guinea pig. Daughter checked mailbox daily for new filter. Filter arrived. Mom cried again. Thank you Able Kids Team for all you have added to our lives!
If we listen to and observe our children, they will tell us everything we need to know about how they are impacted by their auditory environment. The classic behaviors associated with CAPD are easy to identify, if one understands what to look for. CAPD should be considered and investigated when there are concerns and indicators to do so.Contact Us
