Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder

Auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (sometimes called auditory neuropathy or auditory dys-synchrony) are terms used to describe a particular type of hearing problem when sounds may be transmitted normally through the middle ear and the cochlea but then do not transmit normally from the cochlea, or along the auditory nerve. This means that the child may be hearing something, but this is probably very distorted.
