Central Auditory processing deficit (CAPD)
Symptoms of CAPD can range from mild to severe and can take many
different forms. If you think there may be a problem with how your child
processes what he or she hears, ask yourself these questions:
- Is your child easily distracted or unusually bothered by loud or
- Are noisy environments upsetting to your child?
- Does your child's behavior and performance improve in quieter
- Does your child have difficulty following directions, whether simple
or complicated ones?
- Does your child have reading, spelling, writing, or other
- Is abstract information difficult for your child to comprehend?
- Are verbal (word) math problems difficult for your child?
- Is your child disorganized and forgetful?
- Are conversations hard for your child to follow
