CAPD (Central Auditory Processing Disorder) is not a hearing disability or a behavioral disorder. It is a sensory processing disorder with roots in the way the brain “sees” the sounds of language. According to an article in Dartmouth Medicine magazine, an individual with CAPD can hear sounds, which is why they can pass a hearing test, but the “coding” of words and sentences becomes scrambled and confused, creating confusion and frustration, which leads to slower processing times. While a child with CAPD is still untangling one sentence, the teacher has usually moved on, stacking further confusing sounds in his/her way. This page pulls together activities and teaching methods that our teachers have found successful in teaching these students.
