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 
https://www.evernote.com/shard/s329/sh/35c143f8-30d8-4b16-81d9-bb9bbd34449f/23638e20a161955c968bedd5bf0e59c9  
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,

and 
Subcortical pathways: towards a better understanding of auditory disorders 
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5911198/ 
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.
