It can be hard to tell whether a young child’s difficulty understanding is because of an auditory processing disorder (APD). APD typically isn’t diagnosed until grade school, but there are some warning signs that can be detected in preschool.
The Understood Team is composed of writers, editors and community moderators, many of whom have children with learning and attention issues.
Ellen Koslo, Au.D., is an audiologist and associate professor of otolaryngology at Columbia University Medical Center.
