Abstract

Auditory brainstem responses were recorded in normal children (NL) and children clinically diagnosed with a learning problem (LP). These responses were recorded to both a click stimulus and the formant transition portion of a speech syllable /da/. While no latency differences between the NL and LP populations were seen in responses to the click stimuli, the syllable /da/ did elicit latency differences between these two groups. Deficits in cortical processing of signals in noise were seen for those LP subjects with delayed brainstem responses to the /da/, but not for LPs with normal brainstem measures. Preliminary findings indicate that training may be beneficial to LP subjects with brainstem processing delays.
