The term auditory processingrefers to “what we do with what we hear” and an auditory processing disordercan result from any breakdown in the broad set of skills that are needed to deal with auditory information including, but not limited to, attention, memory, cognition, and hearing. Central auditory processing deficits(CAPDs) are auditory processing disorders caused by deficiency in those skills that are subserved by the central auditory mechanism in the brainstem and brain. The following skills have been identified, to date (ASHA, 1996): sound localization, auditory discrimination, auditory pattern recognition, temporal resolution, temporal masking, temporal integration, temporal ordering, and the ability to identify or recognize degraded or competing targets.
