To date, there are no strict medicine procedures or treatment plans for APD. However, the effects resulted due to this disorder can surely be alleviated by designing a contingent plan in which multiple strategies can be implemented.
Many training programs are designed and developed to fix specific issues related to APD and to eradicate issues related to concentration.
As APD symptoms can be identified as the patient gets older and reaches towards the age of 7 or older, the same way, improvement can also be seen with passing time and older age. During this time, these coping strategies can be easily implemented in their daily lives. If done efficiently, they can get back a normal and successful life at home and school.

To develop language and enhance learning, a child needs to be able to hear the teacher’s voice clearly at school. Compared to children with normal hearing, children with hearing loss experience more difficulty in perceiving speech and learning words in noise.
EduMic is a classroom hearing solution that provides direct access to the teacher’s voice from a wireless remote microphone to help children manage noise, reverberation and distance in the classroom.
Oticon’s pediatric hearing aids and EduMic work together to maximize children’s speech understanding for language development, learning and socializing opportunities. Top benefits include:
Strong and reliable signal to hearing aids
Durable and built to last
Discreet and comfortable to wear
Only need to pair once to an unlimited amount of hearing aids
Includes a telecoil mode
Features a 3.5 mm audio jack cable to stream sound from computers, smartboards and tablets
The Oticon EduMic is used with either Oticon Play or Oticon Xceed. Even if your child has no hearing loss, the EduMic is a transmitter and therefore needs your child to wear either of the aforementioned to act as receivers.

The estimated prevalence of central auditory processing disorders in children is 2-3%
It is reasonable to assume that children with hearing loss are at risk for expending greater effort listening in typical classroom environments than their peers with normal hearing
Research has also demonstrated that many children with normal hearing (e.g., children with learning, reading, language, attention and/or auditory processing disorders) also experience difficulties understanding speech in typical classroom environments
Gary Rance (PhD), Associate Professor, Department of Audiology & Speech Pathology, The University of Melbourne
"In our study of school-aged children with ASD, children could hear the teacher’s words better, communicate with their fellow students better and were generally more engaged in classroom activities"
