In brief: Learning Disability
Auditory processing disorders are a type of learning disability.
As the name indicates, people with apd have more difficulty with processing auditory information than we would expect based on their intelligence otherwise. There is no cure, but especially for schoolchildren accommodations to the learning environment are very helpful, and people can learn skills to cope with an apd. Consult your doc.

In brief: Disorder?
All of us process what we hear in different ways.
Husbands have selective deafness just as do teenagers and young children. In school this get the formal designation of a disorder. Some children learn by sight better than by hearing. This is not a disorder but just a variant of normal. To help with learning, visual cues and repetition and even touch cues may help these children.
