What’s the Difference Between Auditory Processing Disorder and Being Hard of Hearing?

Hearing loss, or hearing impairment, is a problem with one or more parts of the ear that interrupts the way sound travels through the hearing system up to the brain. Someone who has hearing loss might be able to hear most sounds, hear only some sounds or possibly nothing at all. To understand hearing loss, it helps to know how the ear works. 

So how does hearing loss differ from an auditory processing disorder (APD)?
APD is not the inability to hear. It’s the inability to interpret, organize, or analyze what’s heard. All the parts of the hearing pathway are working well. But parts of the brain are not.
