Can you hear but struggle to understand?

Central Auditory Processing Disorder is not a problem with your hearing, but rather an issue in your brain that makes listening and comprehending more challenging.


Is it Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD)?

CAPD is a prime example of why it is crucial to test both the ears and the brain. This disorder is often misdiagnosed as a hearing issue, when you may just have difficulty differentiating between words that sound similar. You may also relate to these symptoms:

  • Normal hearing test results, but the issues persist
  • Difficulty following quick conversations
  • Difficulty learning songs
  • Problems reading, spelling, and learning
  • Distracted by background noises
  • Constantly asking people to repeat themselves
