MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State University has started a program to help children with a disorder that affects how their brains process language.

Several faculty members and graduate students are involved in the program. It uses proven techniques to treat children with an auditory processing disorder.

The disorder affects how the brain processes language. Children and adults with auditory processing disorder have normal hearing sensitivity and will pass a hearing test, but their brains do not appropriately process what they hear.

Participants have ranged in age from 8 to 14 years old and were from north-central Kansas.
