Diagnostic challenge in auditory processing disorders in children
Joanna Majak

Auditory processing disorders may present in neurological
disease or developmental disorders or without any other
background. On Bruton conference these auditory deficits
have been termed “auditory processing disorders” instead of
“central auditory processing disorders” in order to emphasize
interactions between peripheral and central auditory pathways.
APD may manifest as a deficit in temporal processing, sound
localization and discrimination, pattern recognition and performance
deficits when the auditory signal is degraded or in the
presence of competing noise. This manuscript reviews current
definitions, diagnostic criteria and emphasizes problems in confirming
APD. Diagnosis is based on detailed history, behavioural
and electrophysiological tests. As a part of diagnostic process
speech and language assessment and psychological assessment is
needed. Undiagnosed and untreated auditory processing disorders
may have serious consequences on child’s life. Nowadays
particular emphasis is on the identification of child’s difficulties
and their appropriate remediation.
