Auditory processing is the term given to the transfer of information from the ears to the brain.
Children (and adults) with auditory
processing disorder have deficiencies in
processing certain aspects of
auditory information correctly.
Auditory processing is also known as APD and (C)APD.
It is not a hearing loss.
Auditory processes include sound localization and lateralization, auditory discrimination, auditory pattern recognition, temporal aspects of audition, auditory performance in competing acoustic signals, and auditory performance with degraded acoustic signals.
