ADHD and auditory processing disorder: Difference, diagnosis, and more 24/02/2023 -the-link

People with ADHD may have trouble processing sensory input, including auditory information. For example, a 2017 studyTrusted Source notes that children with ADHD do not perform as well on auditory processing tests. However, they perform similarly to neurotypical children after treatment with methylphenidate. This suggests that auditory processing issues may be an ADHD symptom.

ADHD affects executive functioning, attention, and impulse controlTrusted Source. This may make it more difficult for people to process sensory input, including sounds. It may be difficult or impossible for a person with ADHD to interpret sounds or distinguish one sound from another, particularly in distracting environments.

Happiness and the best of health in the Year of the Rabbit!

One of my all-time favourite dishes: Chai Tow Kway. Tasty, without being incredibly unhealthy. It is also a unique local dish for several reasons. Eaten anytime - breakfast, lunch (we just had it at lunch at home), dinner or supper. It is a Teochew dish (from Chaoshan in China), but now eaten by all groups and races. And it has been in our hawker stalls from the earliest days, but also found in expensive restaurants.

In the old days, it was sometimes sold wrapped up in an opeh leaf (the beige colour leaf from the betel nut palm) with a toothpick for you to eat it with.

I prefer the ‘white’ version, without the dark sweet sauce. The radish cake is fried with eggs (or on top of a beaten egg, to form a batter), garlic, sometimes some dried shrimp, with fish sauce, and chopped spring onion added at the end.

By the way, although Chai Tow Kway is called Fried Carrot Cake in English (including on the signs at our hawker stalls), that was always an incorrect translation from the Hokkien name. Chai Tow Kway is made with radish cake – itself made from rice flour and white radish (which locals often call ‘lo bak’, which comes from Cantonese). There is simply no carrot in it.
