The article presents a case study of a child ('Sally') with multiple risk factors for auditory processing disorder (APD), including low birth weight and a history of otitis media. Sally presented for auditory processing assessment at age 7 years 9 months due to learning difficulties, despite normal intelligence.
Results suggest a central auditory processing disorder characterized by an asymmetric problem in the processing of binaural, noncoherent signals in auditory space.
Case studies are detailed for three children referred for central auditory processing assessment. All performed more than 5 standard deviations below the mean normative data score for their age.
Thus, the present case report highlights the results of various audiological tests with special emphasis on investigating the auditory processing abilities in a known case of Kartagner's syndrome. In order to accomplish the aim, the audiological test battery was carried out on a 42 year old male patient diagnosed as having Kartagner's syndrome.
Auditory processing disorder (APD) is a hearing problem where the brain is unable to process sounds in the normal way. It can affect people of all ages, but often starts in childhood. Symptoms of auditory processing disorder APD can affect people in many different ways.
Case: “B” is an 8-year-old girl with auditory processing, reading, attention and social challenges. Summary: “B” began exhibiting difficulties in preschool with auditory processing and motor skills, as well as increasing difficulties with peer interactions.
A Case Study of an 11YearOld With Auditory Processing Disorder.
This paper presents two cases that provide evidence that the inclusion of deficit specific auditory treatment into the overall intervention plan of students with specific central auditory processing disorder can reduce the deficit and minimize its impact in a relatively short period of time.

The central auditory test results for three normal-hearing children who were initially diag- nosed as having a central auditory processing disorder and learning disability are presented. They were referred to the authors for second-opinion consultations.
Auditory processing problems are a feature of many other disorders, including autism, dyslexia, learning disabilities, dyspraxia, developmental and speech delay, and attention deficit disorder (ADD or ADHD).
The case presented in this study is of a 7 year old subject, which the history and the results of the central auditory testing were consistent with an Auditory Processing Disorder (APD). Then, he was submitted to speech therapy sessions and presented better performances in the AP testes after the AT.
To help address this need, check out two retrospective case-study reviews presented by Chyrisse Heine and Michelle Slone and then join the discussion in the Audiology Community. Reference.

Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) is an incurable, lifelong condition of neurological origin that affects the way that the brain processes sound including speech. The brain plays a vital role in the hearing process yet many organisations that support people with hearing difficulties (and some audiologists and other professionals) still don't recognise or support APD.
Objective: To introduce methods of central auditory processing tests, study the principle of diagnosis and management of suspected auditory processing disorder. Methods: Three children are presented as case studies. Conducting audiological tests, educational psychology tests, speech pathology assessment and central auditory processing assessment.
However, we have no empirical evidence to support this contention in the case of auditory processing disorders in adults. I would like to see longitudinal studies that examine the long-term effects on aging adults of engaging in these types of activities.
Case Study: So what does an auditory processing disorder from a head injury look like? In this case study, a woman is involved in a motor vehicle accident in which she sustains a “concussion”. She complains shortly after the accident that she can’t seem to hear as well in crowds and has difficulty understanding speech with foreign accents.
In early primary school children,problems in learning alphabetical order of words, problems in the association of sounds and letters; problems in coming up with rhyming words; and difficulty in mixing up sounds to form words are experienced (Heaton, et al 2001).In the diagnosis of the disorder, it is essential to analyze processing sites affected by dyslexia.
Here we present a case study investigating auditory processing of GM, a nonverbal child with ASD and cerebral palsy. At the age of 8 years, GM was tested using magnetoencephalography (MEG) whilst passively listening to speech sounds and complex tones.
