Phase 2 of CATALISE: a multinational and multidisciplinary Delphi consensus study of problems with language development: Terminology
TLDR
This Delphi exercise highlights reasons for disagreements about terminology for language disorders and proposes standard definitions and nomenclature.
Comorbidity of auditory processing, language, and reading disorders.
TLDR
Assessment of comorbidity of auditory processing disorder (APD), language impairment (LI), and reading disorder (RD) in school-age children found that LI and RD commonly co-occur with APD.
Auditory brainstem response, middle latency response, and late cortical evoked potentials in children with learning disabilities.
TLDR
Auditory evoked potentials and behavioral tests were used to evaluate auditory processing in 10 children aged 7 to 11 years who were diagnosed as learning disabled (LD), and there were minor ABR latency differences between the two groups.
Technology, expectations, and adjustment to hearing loss: predictors of hearing aid outcome.

TLDR
Findings were consistent with previous studies showing positive outcomes for newer technologies but also showed that two subjective factors, prefitting hearing aid expectations and acceptance of hearing loss, significantly influenced hearing aid outcome.
A randomized control trial of interventions in school-aged children with auditory processing disorders
TLDR
Both intervention approaches were beneficial and there were additional benefits with the use of personal FM and positive results were not limited to the areas specifically targeted by the interventions.
Investigation of the Profile of Hearing Aid Performance in Experienced Hearing Aid Users
TLDR
A shortened, 22‐item APHAP is a preferred alternative to the full PHAP, producing data representing several dimensions of hearing aid performance, and can be used together with overall satisfaction and estimates of daily hearing aid use to measure success with hearing aids.
The use of cortical auditory evoked potentials to evaluate neural encoding of speech sounds in adults.
TLDR
This research demonstrates that CAEPs can be reliably evoked by sounds that encompass the entire speech frequency range and may provide an objective indication that spectrally different speech sounds are encoded differently at the cortical level.
