Das bisherige Konsensus-Statement zu Auditiven Verarbeitungs- und Wahrnehmungsstörungen (AVWS) der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Phoniatrie und Pädaudiologie aus dem Jahre 2000 wurde unter Berücksichtigung der neueren wissenschaftlichen und klinischen Erkenntnisse überarbeitet und aktualisiert. Im neuen Konsensuspapier werden umfangreiche Aspekte zur(More)
Aspekte des zentralen Hörprozesses sind in der deutschsprachigen Literatur mit einer Vielzahl von Begriffen beschrieben worden, die größtenteils bisher nur sehr wage oder uneinheitlich definiert wurden. Dies hat dazu geführt, dass Störungen des zentralen Hörprozesses mit einer Vielzahl von verschiedenen Begriffen und Diagnosen belegt sind. Von der American(More)
The consensus statement published by the German Society for Phoniatry and Paedaudiology in the year 2000 has been revised and actualized. The revised version takes into account current scientific and clinical findings. Aspects of the definition of auditory processing disorders (APD) are described extensively. These include symptoms, anamnestic information(More)
A total of 1528 pre-school children (mean age 4 years and 9 months), being identified as speech or language delayed, were evaluated with respect to micro-otoscopy, nose and throat pathology, hearing function, and speech-language abilities. Subjects were classified into groups of (I) constant normal hearing, (II) fluctuating conductive hearing loss and (III)(More)
A new method for evaluation of hearing threshold in babies is presented. The method does not require much time, cost or personnel and is practicable for infants up to about 12 months. It is based on synchronous electrical registration of sucking and breathing activities as well as of eye movements evoked by acoustic stimuli. Sucking and breathing are(More)
Multichannel infant reflex audiometry, applicable up to about 1 year of age, is based on the simultaneous registration of sucking and breathing activities and of eye movements together with marks which indicate the side, beginning, and end of the stimulus. Sucking and breathing are reduced or altered by suprathreshold stimuli. The threshold of responses is(More)
BACKGROUND A standardized anamnestic questionnaire of central auditory processing disorders ("Anamnestischer Erhebungs- und Beobachtungsbogen für auditive Verarbeitungs- und Wahrnehmungsstörungen") (FB-AVWS) was developed by German paedaudiologists. The present study examined the relations between this questionnaire and the results of selected(More)
The incidence of hearing loss in early childhood is not exactly defined in the Federal Republic of Germany. There are only some publications on this problem giving incidental information. By analysing this sparse data we tried to determine whether in incidence of hearing loss also applies to the German region. It appears necessary that hearing loss is(More)
The activity curves (sucking, breathing, eye movements) of 18 babies were inspected for alterations which might indicate reactions of hearing. In 10 cases, 4 of them also confirmed by ABR findings, we found it possible to deduce the hearing threshold from alterations of the respective activities alone even without knowledge of the occurrence of the stimulus(More)
