  • Both of my sons have it. They were both diagnosed at 7 years old. Both were having trouble learning to read and were all most retained in first grade. My 13 year old is in eighth grade and reading on an eleventh grade level! PM me if you have any questions?

  • It is a problem with how a child processes the information he's hearing. An individual can have absolutely perfect hearing but difficulty with how he processes the information he's collecting. We had CAPD testing done to rule this out for our child.  A child can be tested anytime after the age of 7.
