Individuals with Auditory Processing Disorder have behavioral problems?

I was reading an article about Auditory Processing Disorder and I was reading the characteristic section, and it happened to mention that individuals with Auditory Processing Disorders have a behavioral problem? I don't understand what they mean by that?

People with APD have trouble processing speech and language. This can lead to (although it doesn't always) behavior problems, which means they may behave in anti-social or unacceptable ways. For example, they may have trouble getting along with others, have trouble with personal relationships, or have psychological problems. This is not to say all people with APD behave this way, but given the difficulties with communication that APD can cause, some people may react negatively in the way they behave.  (+ info)

what is perceptual distortion disorder and what are the signs and symptoms?

i recently broke up with a man whom i loved dearly. he wound up in a lot of trouble and is currently in jail. i also found out at the same time he was engaged to me he was engaged to another woman, and he was telling both of us tremendous lies about himself. his father told me he has bipolar disorder (which i am familiar with and understand) and perceptual distortion disorder. i can't find anything which tells what this is and what the signs of it are. i'd like to know more about this disorder so i can understand better what has transpired in my relationship with this man in the last 3 months.

Looks like addictive behaviors permeating a person's life. But he sounds like a sociopath to me. Has no idea about how his behaviors affect others and does not care.  (+ info)

What is central auditory processing disorder, how do you get it?

Are you born with this disorder, can it be caused by something happening to you. Like you not having it until you fall at age 5, please explain this to me

What Are the Signs and Symptoms?

Symptoms of CAPD can range from mild to severe and can take many different forms. If you think there may be a problem with how your child processes what he or she hears, ask yourself these questions:

* Is your child easily distracted or unusually bothered by loud or sudden noises?
* Are noisy environments upsetting to your child?
* Does your child's behavior and performance improve in quieter settings?
* Does your child have difficulty following directions, whether simple or complicated ones?
* Does your child have reading, spelling, writing, or other speech-language difficulties?
* Is abstract information difficult for your child to comprehend?
* Are verbal (word) math problems difficult for your child?
* Is your child disorganized and forgetful?
* Are conversations hard for your child to follow?

These, as well as other behaviors, may be signs of a central auditory processing disorder (CAPD). It's an often-misunderstood problem because many of the behaviors noted above may also appear in other conditions such as learning disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and even depression. But kids with CAPD can have a coexisting disorder - the most commonly seen is ADHD. Although CAPD is often confused with ADHD, it is possible to have both.  (+ info)

Can a child have sensory integration dysfunction without having autism or other disorders?

My daughter's school psychologist wants to have my daughter labeled as autistic (high functioning). She already has been diagnosed with ADHD by a psychologist that I hired and sensory integration dysfunction (mostly auditory) by the school occupational therapist.

I would try going to a Dr. like the previous poster advised. I think that you can have the SI dysfunction w/o autism. Is she social? Can she read social cues? These are things you may need to investigate.

One other thing. We tried AIT (Berard Method) and found that it really helped our children.

Good luck!  (+ info)

What drugs work for auditory hallucinations?

My partner has auditory hallucinations. This is not coming from schizophrenia (she is diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, more like she is hearing the same thought going over and over in her head like a song is stuck in her head. She is on Risperadol and has had an injection of Geodone both have given her uncomfortable side effects.

Antipsychotic medications are used for the treatment of psychotic symptoms in all sorts of disorders. These medications have plenty of side effects and some patients will tell you that the side effects are worse than the symtoms. If your partner is able to find a way to cope with her auditory hallucinations without medication, it may be okay. Have her talk with a well trained professional and possibly someone who specialises in borderline personality disorder. She may learn some coping techniques. She should also speak with a psychiatrist to help her find a medication that can find the right medication for her condition. A thought going over and over in one's head isn't exactly an auditory hallucination so much as it is a problem with thinking. Auditory hallucinations are generally heard as if real or loud instead of just repeating.  (+ info)

Can you have auditory hallucinations with Bipolar 1 Disorder?

Is it possible someone with BPD type 1 can have hallucinations (hearing voices, but they do not give them commands, but they do communicate with them daily)? Or is this some other type of mental disorder with symptoms that mimic BPD?

My son has bipolar I and while he was in a manic episode and walking the street he heard disturbing voices. They didnt tell him to do anything specific but it was later ascertained that his mania got so bad that he crossed over into psychosis.

So to answer your question, the bipolar itself doesnt necessarily cause the auditory hallucinations but when left untreated it can turn into something more severe.

Good luck 2u. Hope this helped.  (+ info)

How do you know if someone has Auditory Processing Disorder?

How does it affect their personality and behaviour, also what symptoms would I need to look for?

I want to answer this, because we were just told it is possible my daughter has it. Basically what her evaluator said is that she has trouble processing certain words and ideas. So, for instance, I will tell her to subtract 5 from 10, and she will look at me quizzically. But if I tell her to take away 5 from 10, she can do it.
The evaluator said to try to listen to her words to give us a clue as to how to talk to her, to NOT time her on things, and to read aloud to her as well as let her read to herself. She also said to read aloud any instructions and have her say them back to make sure she understands.
I don't know if this helps, I hope it does.
I would find an ESE teacher to help evaluate the person to have a better working knowledge if they have it or not.  (+ info)

Is it possible to develop auditory processing disorder as a teenager?

I'm 16, and over the last couple years I've been noticing that I have almost all the symptoms for APD. But all the sites I've checked say that it's a condition that only arises in children. Is it possible that I have APD?

I have had since i was in grade school. I am now 20 years old. If you feel you have all the symptoms i wont bore you with them. However, try to think of it as all in your head. Reason being; in grade school they will put up a surround sound type of dealio for you in your classrooms. or even a give the teacher a little mic and u a headset. but as you get older and go to highschool and college these things cant be supplied. and therefore you become lost. just take notes. then re write them. then type them. then re type them. hahaha. brutal yes but for em its all that really worked.  (+ info)

Auditory Processing Disorders?

Anyone know anything about these? I saw something about it the other day that caught my attention. I have always become easily frustrated around excess noise, and need to ask several times if given directions to do something.

Here is a checklist + me:

Is your child easily distracted or unusually bothered by loud or sudden noises? ---yes
Are noisy environments upsetting to your child? ---yes
Does your child's behavior and performance improve in quieter settings? ---yes
Does your child have difficulty following directions, whether simple or complicated? --- verbally, yes
Does your child have reading, spelling, writing, or other speech-language difficulties?--- no
Is abstract information difficult for your child to comprehend? --- verbally, yes
Are verbal (word) math problems difficult for your child? ---yes
Is your child disorganized and forgetful? --- yes
Are conversations hard for your child to follow? --- verbally, yes

How do I get this checked out?

Regarding auditory processing disorders and ADHD, read the How To Cure Hyperactivity book (1981) about ADHD Inattentive by C. Thomas Wild with Anita Uhl Brothers, M.D. It reports several FDA approved medicines which temporarily improved aspects of CAPD (Central Auditory Processing Disorder). Many persons with auditory processing disorders can pass the very basic hearing tests covered by some HMOs. To test for CAPD, one can go to an audiologist who has specialized testing but many audiologists know very little about ADHD or any other neurological challenges since they tend to specialize in only the ears. Good luck.  (+ info)
