That definition was lifted directly from the Medical Research Councils First
APD pamphlet of 2004.
Those who have an Auditory Processing Disorder do have listening problems or
problems processing what they hear, or put another way they have problems
processing sound based information.
And again according to the Medical Research Council 10% of the population
have some degree of Auditory Processing Disorder, including those who have
had Glue Ear.
On a personal level I was first diagnosed as being dyslexic in 1996, and I
was clinically diagnosed as having Auditory Processing Disorder in 2003.
Auditory Processing Disorder causes me to be dyslexic, or put another way I
have the dyslexic symptoms because I have Auditory Processing Disorder.
