Auditory Processing Disorder is the disorder which relates to processing audiotry or verbal input, basically processing waht you hear.
many wo suffer from this disorder are miss diagnosed with ADHD and or ADD because we have problems processing waht people say, we may loose the plot as to waht they are saying and therefore may appear to lack attention, and after years of thsi frustrating problem of cummunication we may display what could be termed hyperactivity as a protest of being ignored by peers, teachers and family.
this is not to say that all diagnosed as ADHD have APD nor that they do not co exists, but just to be aware of miss diagnosis
