British Society of Audiology (BSA) and the Royal Surrey NHS 2nd Seminar on Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) Hearing in Noise and Hyperacusis. Wednesday 4th March 2020 9:00-12:30 .
Education Centre Lecture Theatre

Prof. Nikki Campbell is aware of "
The Four Types of Auditory Processing Disorder" and that Prof. David Moore who lead the 2004 - 2009 UK Auditory Processing Disorder research program agrees with it as well 

The Four Types of Auditory Processing Disorder -Temporal, Speech in Noise, Amblyaudia, and Spatial  
1) The Temporal type of Auditory processing Disorder (APD) is about having problems processing the gaps between the sounds that the ears hear, which can include the gaps between words in rapid speech. It is also the main underlying cognitive cause of the developmental dyslexia symptom.
2) Speech in Noise is about having problems processing a target sound when there are low levels of background noise.
3) Amblyaudia is about the brain processing better what one ear hears better then how it processes what the other ear hears.
4) Spatial Auditory Processing Disorder is about the brain not being able to identify the location of a sound source.

Hopefully with this and a recent research papers, 
Clinical Expertise Is Core to an Evidence-Based Approach to Auditory Processing Disorder: A Reply to Neijenhuis et al. 2019 
Subcortical pathways: towards a better understanding of auditory disorders 
there will be a better understanding of the various types of Auditory Processing Disorder, and the local NHS Trusts will be able to employ some real audiologists who have a full understanding of all aspects of audiology and overcome their current lack of knowledge.
