Many people who have essentially normal peripheral hearing (i.e., EARS) still have difficulty processing auditory information in ways required for adequate communication, especially in less-than-ideal listening environments (e.g. background noise). In many cases, they may have a Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD). Dr. Jack Katz, a pioneer in CAPD describes auditory processing as "What we do with what we hear." That means the central auditory nervous system's (CANS) contribution to hearing must be taken into account when a standard hearing test alone fails to explain auditory difficulties experienced by patients--including educational difficulties experienced by school children or patients with history of traumatic brain injury (TBI). CAPD can also run in families.
