Aetiology and clinical presentations of auditory processing disorders—a review. Hearing is a complex process that orchestrates transduction of the acoustic stimulus into neural impulses by the ears, transmission of the neural impulses by the auditory nerves to the brain, and perceptual registration and cognitive elaboration of the acoustic signal by the brain as well as conscious perception of the sound.

Aetiology and clinical presentations of auditory processing disorders—a review

Hearing impairment(s) arising from pathology of the brain may have detrimental consequences on a child's life if untreated; however, diagnostic and management strategies for these “central” hearing impairments in childhood are rarely implemented. These auditory deficits have been collectively termed “auditory processing disorders”, in order to incorporate in the term the interaction between peripheral and central pathways.1 In terms of pathophysiological mechanisms, APD may be classified as occurring in the presence of2: neurological conditions; delayed central nervous system maturation; or other developmental disorders. Altered white matter microstructure underlies listening difficulties in children suspected of auditory processing disorders: a DTI study.

Auditory biological marker of concussion in children : Scientific Reports

Children with a concussion exhibit a signature neural profile that distinguishes them from their non-concussed peers. This profile is manifest in the neural coding of a specific ingredient of sound: following a concussion, neural responses process the F0 of speech less robustly and are smaller, slower, and less accurate. The symptom load of an injury relates to this neural profile—concussed children with the highest symptom loads have the weakest responses to speech. We also show that the FFR reliably identifies which children sustained a concussion, suggesting its clinical potential as a biological marker of an injury. These findings are reinforced by partial recovery of F0-coding as concussion symptoms abate.

Auditory Processing Disorder And Brain Pathology In A Preterm Child With Learning Disabilities. Auditory processing disorder: An overview for the clinician. It was not that long ago that the “central auditory test battery” for the average audiologist consisted of presenting a few PB words with some ipsilateral white noise masking tossed in.

Auditory processing disorder: An overview for the clinician

Depending on whose article you read, the performance for normals on this test could be anywhere from 35% to 75%, so whatever score the patient obtained was usually okay. Fortunately, a lot has changed since then, and we have many people to thank. Auditory processing disorders: can they be treated? Introduction A child is said to have an auditory processing disorder (APD) if she or he scores poorly on a test that asks them to detect, identify, discriminate, order, group, or localize sounds.

Auditory processing disorders: can they be treated?

An APD is thought to affect the processing of both nonspeech and speech sounds. However, the best tests for APDs use nonspeech sounds because nonauditory factors, like language exposure or language expertise, can confound responses to speech sounds [1••]. Can a child's APD be treated? To answer this question, I will first discuss who has an APD, how APD is treated, and how APD treatments should be tested. Auditory processing disorder in children with reading disabilities: effect of audiovisual training. Materials and methods Participants A group of 46 school-aged children served as subjects.

Twenty-three were formally classified as dyslexic on neuropsychological and speech-therapy assessment. These children with dyslexia (mean age, 10yr 11m; range, 8yr 4m to 13yr 11m; 11M, 12F) had a consistent history of persistent specific literacy difficulties, with reading levels at least 18 months behind chronological age, but with a performance Intelligent Quotient above 80 on the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children – Revised (3rd Edition) (WISCIII-R). Auditory processing disorders in neurological patients and in patients with developmental disorders. In the mid 1950's, Bocca, Calearo and Cassinari (1954) made the seminal observations that patients with temporal lobe tumours complained of hearing difficulties, despite the presence of normal hearing thresholds and normal speech recognition in quiet.

Auditory processing disorders in neurological patients and in patients with developmental disorders

Around the same time, Myklebust (1954) proposed that central auditory function ought to be considered and assessed in children with communication disorders. Over the last 20-30 years, it has become increasingly recognised that impaired structure and/or function of the brain may have little or no effect on hearing thresholds, but may cause deficits in other aspects of the hearing process. These deficits are collectively referred to as an “auditory processing disorder” (APD). Recent progress in auditory neuroscience has only just begun to translate into clinical practice, with the development of more sensitive and specific test batteries for APD, however, at the moment there are no universally accepted diagnostic criteria for APD.

1 We're always hearing and reading about auditory processing disorders (APD) in children.

Auditory processing disorders: It's not just kids who have them.

Are you suggesting that APD can also occur in adults? It certainly can. As a matter of fact, the first recognized cases of APD were probably adults, even if they weren't labeled that at the time.

Psychoacoustic tests Learning disabilities, attention deficit disorders and dyslexia are assessed through a great variety of psychoacoustic tests.

Age limitations have to be considered [11] and specially designed tests are used for different age groups. When evaluating children who are less than 12 years old an important step is the Pediatric Speech Intelligibility (PSI) Test. This consists of single words and sentences presented with a competing message at varying levels of difficulty [12]. In this test it is essential that performance is adjusted for language age according to previously determined normative data [13].

Children older than 12 years old are assessed through a more complex test battery that contains several tests. The Staggered Spondaic Word Test (SSW) consists of two-syllable spondaic words that are presented simultaneously to each ear [18]. Cortical Alpha Oscillations Predict Speech Intelligibility. Introduction Hearing in humans is normally quantified using pure tone audiometry, which measures absolute sensitivity across a wide range of pure tone frequencies centered on those thought most useful for speech perception (Moore, 2013).

However, the resulting audiogram does not provide a complete picture of listening abilities encountered in everyday environments. For example, a person with a normal pure tone audiogram may still experience difficulty understanding speech in a noisy and reverberant room (Ruggles and Shinn-Cunningham, 2011). Listening to speech in noise (SiN) is a challenging and complex task involving a high level of cognitive as well as sensory processing in the ear, the central auditory system, and multimodal areas in the temporal, frontal and parietal cortex (Hickok and Poeppel, 2007; Füllgrabe et al., 2015; Evans et al., 2016). A large literature exists on alpha rhythms for sensory processing in the visual system (Lleras et al., 2011).

Decreased temporal precision of neuronal signaling as a candidate mechanism of auditory processing disorder. Open Access Highlights In mouse models of central deafness and APD the cochlea is intact. Hearing crucially depends on short first spike latencies (FSL) and low jitter. Lack of synchronized firing may underlie deafness in the quivering mouse model.

Electrophysiological assessment of auditory processing disorder in children with non-syndromic cleft lip and/or palate. Introduction Cleft lip and/or palate (CL/P) is a congenital craniofacial anomaly, contributing to human birth defects in all populations. The majority of individuals with CL/P are diagnosed with non-syndromic cleft lip and/or palate (NSCL/P), indicating a cleft disorder in isolation from other abnormal phenotypes (Stanier & Moore, 2004). Peripheral hearing problems are common in children with NSCL/P, with a high prevalence of middle ear deficits often attributed directly or indirectly to Eustachian tube dysfunction (Bluestone & Doyle, 1988; Sheer, Swarts & Ghadiali, 2012).

In western populations, prevalence figures for unilateral or bilateral conductive hearing loss of greater than 50% (Caldarelli, 1978) to 75% (Flynn et al., 2009) are frequently reported in children with CL/P.
