Event-related potentials (ERPs) from 134 children were obtained at 3 and 8 years of age and recorded to a series of consonant-vowel speech syllables and their nonspeech analogues. The HOME inventory was administered to these same children at 3 and 8 years of age and the sample was divided into 2 groups (low vs. high) based on their HOME scores. Discriminant functions analyses using ERP responses to speech and non-speech analogues successfully classified HOME scores obtained at 3 and 8 years of age and discriminated between children who received low vs. high levels of stimulation for language and reading.
