Thankyou so much for your detailed reply.
Are you able to distinguish yourself when his symptoms are resultiung from APD or ADHD, especially when they overlap? Do you notice a difference in his behaviors outside the school environment, or in a place where his auditory processes arent challenged?
The school psychologist told me in a recent email, that my ds not only lacks focus in the classroom, but seems to lack impulse control in places where his auditory processing isnt challenged.
Again, in the home environment, i dont see this. I asked her for examples, but she hasnt gotten back to me. I can see my kid singing or making noises when he is tired, or in a group environment, but in a way that is normal for a child. But certainly nothing that would beg a diagnosis.
The other issue is that noone is sure of the exact cause of APD. Is there something in the brain that overlaps with what causes APD with the brain function causing ADHD?
