Background: Children with auditory processing disorders (APD) seem to have difficulties in auditory functioning, and with cognitive, language and reading tasks. However, it is not clear whether the behavioural characteristic of children with APD are distinctive from the behavioural characteristics of children with another developmental disorder, like specific language impairment (SLI), dyslexia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
Aim: The aim of this study was to determine which characteristics overlap between children with APD versus SLI, dyslexia, ADHD, or ASD.
