William Tay was diagnosed with Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD) when he was 10 years old. People with CAPD can’t process what they hear in the same way other people do. This is because their ears and brain don’t fully coordinate. CAPD affects about five per cent of school-aged children, including Tay. Naturally, his ability to learn in school was affected, especially when he was younger. He told Mothership: “There were moments that I felt like giving up. As a student with special educational needs (SEN), it was not easy to mingle around with my peers and cope with my studies.

He worked twice as hard as his peers and took control of his own life. “I motivated myself and pushed myself to find new ways to learn and cope with my SEN while telling myself to always do my utmost best.
