Auditory/Language Processing Disorders

There is a definite relationship between listening and understanding. If there is a disconnect between these, an Auditory or Language Processing Disorder may be suggested. Auditory Processing Disorders occur when the brain has difficulty understanding auditory information. Children may have trouble in school, may be labeled as “misbehaving” or having “special needs”. However, the reason they are not paying attention is because they are having difficulty processing the information. A multidisciplinary team, including a Speech Language Pathologist, is utilized to diagnose and treat this disorder.
