ADD ADHD and trouble hearing
A fellow ADDer recently asked me if his difficulties in hearing were part of his ADD ADHD. He particularly has trouble in a crowded restaurant, hearing the person across from him.
I’d never thought about it. I thought my trouble hearing was age. In a restaurant, I like to sit with my back to the wall, but thought that was just paranoia. Maybe it’spart of ADD ADHD? I’m interested and curious and want to know what’s going on. But maybe it has something to do with hearing? Less noise from behind me?
Auditory Processing Disorder
So I did a little research and came up with auditory processing disorder (APD). Apparently, like dyslexia, there is a correlation with ADD ADHD (see links below, once you get there).
1. Do you have trouble with hearing? Do you think it’s part of your ADD ADHD?
2. Are these things, like APD, a basic part of ADD ADHD, or do they just run together because we have various brain dysfunctions, not just one.
3. Currently, ADD ADHD is divided into three types, hyperactive, inattentive, combined. But are there actually many more varieties, coming from different genetic combinations and environmental exposures and manifesting different combinations of symptoms?

Couldn’t APD as well be called CHS?
