Is there a different between Central Audithory Processing and Audithory Processing?
And can you please explain the use of FM system in class.
Hi lilalo. Thanks for your questions. Auditory processing disorder (APD) is also known as central auditory processing disorder (CAPD). So both refer to the same condition. FM systems (FM stands for frequency modulation) can reduce background noise in the classroom and amplify what the teacher says. The teacher wears a microphone that broadcasts either to speakers around the room or to a personal receiver worn by the student. You can read more about auditory processing disorder here: http://u.org/1QA8XaB

This is very helpful. I was wondering if you would give me permission to upload this into my Google drive and share it with the classroom teachers in my school district.
