Abstract: Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD) or APD (Auditory Processing Disorder) is usually confused with a physical hearing impairment (i.e. with hearing loss), or problems related to attention deficit disorders, usually comorbid with psychomotor hyperactivity. However, in children with APD, where the conductive hearing has been assessed as normal, the problem is the improper processing of auditory stimuli. It is estimated that 30 of children with dyslexia and up to 50 of children with learning disabilities have central hearing processing disorders. This article deals with the problem of CAPD discovered and followed scientifically in two students. It is also an attempt to answer the question how to work with such students; in particular, how to increase the efficiency of their work and acquisition of knowledge skills in foreign language lessons. The paper will present a suggestion to be possibly applied by foreign second language teachers meeting APD-impaired learners in their everyday educational activities.
