Aetiology and clinical presentations of auditory processing disorders—a review -- Bamiou et al. 85 (5): 361 -- Archives of Disease in Childhood Hearing is a complex process that orchestrates transduction of the acoustic stimulus into neural impulses by the ears, transmission of the neural impulses by the auditory nerves to the brain, and perceptual registration and cognitive elaboration of the acoustic signal by the brain as well as conscious perception of the sound. Hearing impairment(s) arising from pathology of the brain may have detrimental consequences on a child's life if untreated; however, diagnostic and management strategies for these “central” hearing impairments in childhood are rarely implemented. These auditory deficits have been collectively termed “auditory processing disorders”, in order to incorporate in the term the interaction between peripheral and central pathways.1 In terms of pathophysiological mechanisms, APD may be classified as occurring in the presence of2: neurological conditions; delayed central nervous system maturation; or other developmental disorders.

Central Auditory Processing Disorders - An Overview of Assessment and Management Practices | Home | Site Search | Outreach | See/Hear Index | Spring 2000 Table of ContentsVersión Español de este artículo (Spanish Version) By Mignon M. Schminky and Jane A. Hearing is a complex process that is often taken for granted. There are many individuals who have no trouble detecting the presence of sound, but who have other types of auditory difficulties (e.g., difficulties understanding conversations in noisy environments, problems following complex directions, difficulty learning new vocabulary words or foreign languages) that can affect their ability to develop normal language skills, succeed academically, or communicate effectively. Central auditory processes are the auditory system mechanisms and processes responsible for the following behavioral phenomena. Sound localization and lateralization Auditory discrimination Temporal aspects of audition including: temporal resolution, temporal masking, temporal integration and temporal ordering. Electrophysiologic tests Behavioral tests
