Anyone know anything about ANSD?

After my sons drs appointment on the first he gave us a referral for an ent to see if the ent could shed some light on what's going on with him and why he's so behind on his speech. The ENT appointment isn't until the 24th so I've been researching everything and came across ANSD (auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder.) It sounds a lot like my son. So I'm just wondering if anyone has had this diagnosis and what signs/symptoms did your child have if it wasn't detected at birth.
(He never passed the newborn hearing screen but the Drs never seemed worried about it and at age 2 he had his hearing tested and he passed.)

My son is eight and was dx with central auditory processing disorder. I could have him seen by a Neuro but,they are pretty confident with the testing they completed. I think a read about AN SD when I was looking up my sons condition. Now that I have his dx, we are just able to accommodate his learning style a bit more at school, but speech and language strategies remain the same for us.

How is his speech and language? My son is only 3 and I've come to find that speech therapy isn't really doing anything for him because he progressed and then regressed in about a month time span. His speech eval said his understanding of language is at the same level of an 18 month old with expressive and articulation at 14 and 13 month old.

It has been very slow going.  He is in second grade and this year started to have significant trouble. I had been feeling like we were missing something.  After talking with his teachers, I started looking into auditory issues because, I was worried it was impacting his work.  Turns out it is playing a role.  Not a huge one, but enough to need some accommodations during school.  In a quiet one-on-one speech and language lesson, he is able to make improvements.  It is hard right now to make that transition to normal settings.  I do a lot of repeating at home.  The school enlivenment doesn't always allow for that, and he shout down with his frustration and it makes it hard for him to participate. It seems like two steps forward and one back.
