APD is a serious underlying cause of communication difficulties in adults. It has been poorly diagnosed for a long period of time and unfortunately it cannot be detected by standard hearing tests.
Because of difficulties with listening and processing sound, adults with APD may have low self- esteem, be frustrated, anxious, and have difficulty with socialising.
THE GOOD NEWS
Adults diagnosed with APD can be helped to better process sounds and listen, which will in turn help them to feel confident and get along with others.
Bounse Clinics work with adults to accurately assess, test and treat APD and help them to overcome obstacles and challenges with communication.
