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.
Information on the Internet about auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (ANSD) can be quite confusing, with some sites telling parents one thing, and others suggesting something quite different. Often there are so many options to choose from that it can be difficult for parents to work out what’s going to be best for their baby or child. Watch the webinar presented by Dr Kirsty Gardner-Berry where she discusses some of the most frequently asked questions from parents, and provides some answers that will help parents see the journey forward more clearly.
