Myth #5: Children with auditory processing disorder are lazy and rude.
Fact: Kids with APD have trouble processing auditory information. Because of this, they might appear to be ignoring others. They might give incorrect or unrelated answers to questions they mishear. And they may have trouble completing projects or chores, especially if the tasks were assigned orally and required multiple steps. These behaviors might seem like laziness or rudeness, but they’re most likely not.
