Disability Benefits for an Auditory Processing Disorder Patient
Auditory Processing Disorder, or APD, is an umbrella term used to describe a variety of disorders that affect the brain’s ability to process auditory information. Also referred to as Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD), the sensory disorder can even affect young children (roughly 5% of school-aged children are diagnosed with APD).
Auditory processing disorder symptoms can be numerous, with the most common challenges being:
- Hearing in noisy situations
- Following long conversations
- Listening over the telephone
- Learning a new language
- Picking up challenging vocabulary of an already known language
- Being attentive
- Reading or spelling
From that handful of APD symptoms alone, sensory disorder can be debilitating, and undoubtedly impacts a person’s standard of living in some aspect. Disability benefits can offset some of these obstacles through speech therapy or potential medications – and the Canadian government agrees.
Among the many disability benefits offered by the Canadian government are grants: the Disability Tax Credit, the Home Renovation Tax Credit, the Registered Disability Savings Plan, and the Child Disability Benefit.
