MrSmith Posted November 9, 2012 Share Posted November 9, 2012 My DS (age 7) has always had difficulty following oral instructions (written instructions are not a problem). At first we thought he was just not listening. However as the years went on, we noticed that he usually is listening intently to instructions (often he is staring right at me when I give the instructions). Sometimes, but not always, he just doesn't perform the precise actions requested. For example, a few days ago my wife asked him to turn off the living room light, whereupon DS proceeded to turn off every light on the first floor. Needless to say, wife was not impressed. As we dug around the internet, we came across something called Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD). Has anyone heard of it? I am wondering if DS might have it, and how one might go about testing for it? We are pretty sure he is not deaf (hearing tests at pediatrician seem normal, and he can often hear us whispering across the room). Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
