Several years ago my 8yo son was diagnosed with Auditory Processing Disorder. We've had him tested twice by different audiologists.

We've dealt with the APD with a 504 and standard accommodations. I think just knowing about the issue helps my son and us deal with issues that surface better.

Yesterday, my son was diagnosed with ADD, which both me and my wife suspected.

It is my understanding out of all the people/children with ADHD or ADD, 95% also have some level of APD. Is this true?

I am asking because I am wondering if treatment of the ADD should consider the APD? Our doctor knows about the APD and has all the tests results.

Thank you.
