…They all go hand in hand…

Other Disabilities that coincide with (C)APD

There are several other learning differences that go hand in hand with non neurotypical learning.

Later on, I will write a series based on research I’ve conducted of the similarities and differences between Central Auditory Processing Disorder [(C)APD] and these other disorders below. I will also explain how some disorders can also be paired or overlap other disorders, mainly (C)APD.

Here are some to name a few:

ADD/ADHD

attention deficit disorder

n. Abbr. ADD

A syndrome, usually diagnosed in childhood, characterized by a persistent pattern of impulsiveness, a short attention span, and often hyperactivity, and interfering especially with academic, occupational, and social performance.

Autism Spectrum Disorder

A variable developmental disorder that appears by age three and is characterized by impairment of the ability to form normal social relationships, by impairment of the ability to communicate with others, and by stereotyped behavior patterns

Asperger’s Syndrome
A developmental disorder related to autism and characterized by higher than average intellectual ability coupled with impaired social skills and restrictive, repetitive patterns of interest and activities.

Deaf/Hard of Hearing

Having a hearing loss [(C)APD can also be considered a physical hearing impairment]

Dyslexia

a variable often familial learning disability involving difficulties in acquiring and processing language that is typically manifested by a lack of proficiency in reading, spelling, and writing
