Disorder Quizzes & Trivia

Central Auditory Processing Disorder is a hearing disorder that affects about five percent of children. Kids with this condition can't process what they hear in the same way other kids do because their ears and brain don't fully coordinate. What more do you know about it? Take this test and get to learn more.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What does Central Auditory Processing Disorder affect?

    • A.

      Ears and the Brain

    • B.

      Brain and the eyes

    • C.

      Ears and the bloodstream

    Correct Answer
    A. Ears and the Brain
    Explanation
    Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD) affects both the ears and the brain. CAPD is a condition in which the brain has difficulty processing auditory information, even though the ears may have normal hearing. This means that individuals with CAPD may struggle to understand and interpret sounds, especially in noisy environments or when there are multiple sources of sound. The disorder impacts the way the brain processes and analyzes auditory information, leading to difficulties in speech perception, language development, and communication skills. Therefore, both the ears and the brain are affected by CAPD.

    If you have C.A.P.D., your intelligence is.....

    • A.

      Below average

    • B.

      Above average

    • C.

      Not affected by CAPD.

    Correct Answer
    C. Not affected by CAPD.
    Explanation
    CAPD stands for Central Auditory Processing Disorder, which is a condition that affects the brain's ability to process auditory information. It specifically affects the processing and interpretation of sounds, not intelligence. Therefore, having CAPD does not have any impact on a person's intelligence.

  • 3. 

    Which of these is a known cause of auditory disorders?

    • A.

      Eating too much chocolate

    • B.

      Ear Wax build up

    • C.

      No known causes for sure

    Correct Answer
    C. No known causes for sure
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "No known causes for sure." This means that there is currently no definitive or established cause for auditory disorders. It suggests that despite extensive research and study, the exact factors leading to auditory disorders remain unclear. This answer implies that the medical community has not yet identified any specific cause or causes that can be consistently linked to auditory disorders.

    Central Auditory Processing Disorder has very distinct characteristics compared to other disorders.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    False. The statement suggests that Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD) has distinct characteristics compared to other disorders. However, this is not accurate. CAPD shares some symptoms and characteristics with other disorders, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and learning disabilities. Therefore, it cannot be said that CAPD has very distinct characteristics compared to other disorders.

  • 5. 

    Choose four things that someone with CAPD might have difficulty doing.

    • A.

      Riding a bike.

    • B.

      Following long conversations

    • C.

      Watching TV

    • D.

      Organizational Skills

    • E.

      Taking Notes

    • F.

      Listening to music using headphones

    • G.

      Learning a Foreign Language

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Following long conversations
    D. Organizational Skills
    E. Taking Notes
    G. Learning a Foreign Language
    Explanation
    Someone with CAPD (Central Auditory Processing Disorder) may have difficulty following long conversations because they may struggle to process and comprehend auditory information efficiently. They may also have difficulty with organizational skills as CAPD can affect their ability to sequence and prioritize tasks. Taking notes may be challenging for them as they may struggle to capture and retain information presented verbally. Learning a foreign language can also be difficult for individuals with CAPD as it requires strong auditory processing skills to distinguish and understand different sounds and accents.

    • C.

      Little Red Riding Hood

    Correct Answer
    C. Little Red Riding Hood

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement claims that Earobics is an inexpensive way to lose weight. However, Earobics is actually a computer-based program designed to improve phonological awareness and auditory processing skills, primarily used for children with learning difficulties. It is not related to weight loss in any way, making the statement false.

    _____ and _____ are two different kinds of tests used in identifying CAPD.

    • A.

      Electrophysiologic, behavioral

    • B.

      Behavioral, Intelligence tests

    • C.

      Electrophysiologic, Intelligence tests

    Correct Answer
    A. Electrophysiologic, behavioral
    Explanation
    Electrophysiologic and behavioral tests are two different kinds of tests used in identifying CAPD. Electrophysiologic tests measure the electrical activity of the auditory system, such as auditory brainstem response (ABR) and otoacoustic emissions (OAE). These tests provide objective information about the functioning of the auditory system. On the other hand, behavioral tests assess the individual's response to auditory stimuli, such as pure-tone audiometry and speech audiometry. These tests rely on the individual's subjective responses and provide information about their ability to perceive and understand speech. Therefore, both electrophysiologic and behavioral tests are important in diagnosing CAPD as they provide different types of information about the individual's auditory processing abilities.
