Auditory processing disorders (APD) affect a listener’s ability to discriminate, recognize, and understand speech under adverse listening conditions, despite otherwise normal hearing abilities. The neurobiological bases of developmental APD are poorly understood. We will discuss three lines of clinical research that provide converging evidence for abnormal intra- and inter-hemispheric organization of auditory functions in individuals diagnosed with APD.
