Other conditions may have symptoms that are similar to APD, but may not actually be APD. Such conditions include:
-Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
-Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
-Executive Function Disorders
These conditions can also co-exist with APD. Only careful multi-disciplinary assessment and diagnosis can determine whether these other conditions exist and the impact that they may have on processing and listening skills.
