Abstract It is thought that a close relationship exists between auditory processing, the acoustic reflex and speech. Aim A retrospective study to evaluate these three aspects in children with and without phonological disorders and seek any relationship among them. Material Methods 46 children were enrolled: 24 had normal speech abilities and 22 had phonological disorders. All children underwent auditory processing and acoustic reflex threshold testing. Design Cross-sectional contemporary…

The relationship between the lack of stapedial muscle reflex and the presence of (central) auditory processing disorders

It is concluded that the nervous system structures for the central hearing are responsible for the bridge reflex system of the stapedial muscle, which also relate to the acoustic physiologic of the auditory skills which shows a possible relation to the lack of RA to the changes of the disorder of the (central) auditory processing.

Audiometric profiles in children with speech sound disorder: Subclinical hearing loss as a potential factor

Hearing sensitivity in children with speech sound disorder (SSD) is scrutinized and audiometric thresholds at the key-frequencies for speech, 2 and 4 kHz and DPOAEs within similar spectral regions, predicted 7-12% of the variance in phonemic discrimination and reproduction.


The process of auditory closure is defined as the ability to complete distorted or missing parts of the acoustic signal and recognize the message in its entirety, is executed daily and should be

Stapedial reflex and recruitment: what is the relationship with tinnitus?

It is concluded that there is no relationship between tinnitus, the phenomenon of recruitment or the presence of an acoustic reflex.

Relação entre ausência do reflexo do músculo estapédio e presença de distúrbios do processamento auditivo (central)

It is concluded that the nervous system structures for the central hearing are responsible for the bridge reflex system of the stapedial muscle, which also relate to the acoustic physiologic of the auditory skills which shows a possible relation to the lack of RA to the changes of the disorder of the (central) auditory processing.

Fatores na infância e adolescência que podem influenciar o processamento auditivo: revisão sistemática

Ha consenso na literatura da importância do sistema auditivo para o desenvolvimento da linguagem oral e escrita. O Disturbio do Processamento Auditivo refere-se a dificuldade no processamento de

Acoustic Signal Encoding in Children with Auditory Processing Disorders

This book is intended to serve as a platform for future generations to consider the role that science should play in the development of democracy and human rights.



Phonological performance measured by speech severity indices compared with correlated factors.

Children with upper respiratory histories who began to speak later presented more severe speech impairment indices, and there was no difference between the groups regarding otitis, comprehension during the assessment and audiological data.

Relação entre desvios fonológicos e processamento auditivo Relationship between phonological disorders and auditory processing

ABSTRACT Purpose: To study the relationship between phonological disorder and auditory processing. Methods: Data were gathered from patients’ records, and included individuals with diagnosis of

Speech timing of phonologically disordered children: voicing contrast of initial and final stop consonants.

Results indicated that some phonologically disordered subjects failed to differentiate VOT in word-initial voiced and voiceless stops, whereas others produced much longer VOTs for voiceless stopping than did control subjects, which is interpreted to mean that some speech timing control-challenged children may have less maturespeech timing control.

Ocorrência de reflexo acústico alterado em desordens do processamento auditivo

Patients with acoustic reflex alterations and normal audiometry should perform the AP assessment, as these symptoms could unmask pathologies of the central nervous system.

Phonological disorders I: a diagnostic classification system.

Rationale for the classification system is developed from current reviews of issues and concepts in phonology and classification systems, and proceeds from a worksheet for reduction of phonological and other assessment data, through five hierarchical levels of classification entries.

Speech discrimination in patients with Bell's palsy and a paralysed stapedius muscle.

Stapedius function is important in speech discrimination at higher levels of sound intensity such as speech in noise and severing the stapedius tendon in stapes surgery may affect speech discrimination after successful surgery.

Maturação do processamento auditivo em crianças com e sem dificuldades escolares

It was verified that children with learning difficulties presented a lower performance in all of the used tests in the three age groups, which suggests a delay in the maturation of the auditory processing skills.

Acoustic and nonacoustic factors modifying middle-ear muscle activity in waking cats.

The present experiments reveal that in waking cats middle-ear muscle activity may be modified by prior acoustic experience, by nonacoustic factors such as bodily movements, and by changing the significance of the sound for the animal.

New data show that infants use computational strategies to detect the statistical and prosodic patterns in language input, and that this leads to the discovery of phonemes and words.

Stapedius reflex and monaural masking.

It was shown that the antimasking effect of the stapedius reflex could be completely explained by its attenuation of the low frequency masking noise.
