Auditory Brain stem Responses (ABR) were recorded in 24 severely constitutional dyslexic--and 21 normal children. The response latencies of the two groups were almost identical. We conclude that dysfunction of the brain stem auditory pathways should not be expected in dyslexic children.
Auditory Brain stem Responses (ABR) were performed prospectively in 24 severely constitutionally dyslexic children. None of the subjects showed any signs of organic or psychologic abnormality. The results were matched with a corresponding group of normal children. The response latencies of the two groups were almost identical (no statistically significant… (More)
