This article will profile five interesting cases of children with learning disabilities and auditory processing problems. These children have met a rather stringent criteria in terms of being classified as learning disabled. All subjects had normal peripheral hearning and speech discrimination ability in quiet bilaterally, with the exeption of Case 2. Each received extensive educational, psychological, and speech and language evaluations in addition to our audiological work-up. However, we will focus only on the audiological evaluations. Following each case, we will discuss the possible correlations between the presumed etiology and the unique audiological pattern on the central test battery. These five cases represent various kinds of central auditory profiles, with associated etiological correlates, which provide a categorization system for these children.
