December 20, 2017—Five percent of school-age children have an auditory deficit affecting how verbal information is interpreted. This condition, whose symptoms are often confused with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), is known as central auditory processing disorder (CAPD). Those with CAPD have trouble with sound localization, specifically in their ability to isolate a sound source in social environments.
