Developmental deficits that affect speech perception increase the risk of language and literacy problems, which can lead to lowered academic and occupational accomplishment. Normal development and disorders of speech perception have both been linked to temporospectral auditory processing speed. Understanding the role of dynamic auditory processing in speech perception and language comprehension has led to the development of neuroplasticity-based intervention strategies aimed at ameliorating… 
Auditory and language processing skills in Maltese children : a comparative study
Auditory processing disorder is described as a mixture of unrefined listening skills which, despite normal hearing, causes poor speech perception. These difficulties have also been reported in
AUDITORY PROCESSING IN SPECIFIC LANGUAGE IMPAIRMENT
Purpose: Language acquisition is one of the most common important learning in child‘s life. Many children do little effort to learn language. However, some of them encounter difficulties in language
Low-level neural auditory discrimination dysfunctions in specific language impairment—A review on mismatch negativity findings
TLDR
It was found that language intervention can influence the abnormal MMN in children with SLI, enhancing its amplitude and suggesting shortened sensory memory duration and vulnerability of the sensory memory to masking effects.
Cortical Responses to Chinese Phonemes in Preschoolers Predict Their Literacy Skills at School Age
TLDR
The results showed that the poor PA group processed speech changes differentially compared to control group in mismatch negativity and late discriminative negativity, and that speech perception plays an important role in reading development.
Language-Related and Learning Disorders
Neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood, including language-related and learning disabilities, constitute a large percentage of the childhood disorders seen by child clinical neuropsychologists.
Do prereaders' auditory processing and speech perception predict later literacy?
TLDR
Behavioral support is provided for the link between prereading speech amplitude envelope processing and speech perception for future phonology and reading and speech-in-noise perception demonstrates to operate as the most contributing factor for later phonological awareness.
Dynamic auditory processing, musical experience and language development
Children with language-learning impairments (LLI) form a heterogeneous population with the majority having both spoken and written language deficits as well as sensorimotor deficits, specifically
Executive functions in developmental dyslexia
TLDR
Exploring predictive relationships between EF measures and reading, it was found that spoonerism abilities better explained word and non-word reading deficits and auditory and visual-spatial attention also explained the increased percentage of variance related to reading deficit.
Language-universal Sensory Deficits in Developmental Dyslexia: English, Spanish, and Chinese
TLDR
The data support a language-universal theory of the neural basis of developmental dyslexia on the basis of rhythmic perception and syllable segmentation and suggest that novel remediation strategies on the based of rhythm and music may offer benefits for phonological and linguistic development.
Basic Auditory Processing Skills and Phonological Awareness in Low-IQ Readers and Typically Developing Controls
We explore the relationships between basic auditory processing, phonological awareness, vocabulary, and word reading in a sample of 95 children, 55 typically developing children, and 40 children with

Nonlinguistic perceptual deficits associated with reading and language disorders
Recent behavioral evidence supports the idea that some individuals with reading and language disorders are impaired in their perception of nonlinguistic auditory and visual information. More
Defects of Non-Verbal Auditory Perception in Children with Developmental Aphasia
TLDR
Examining children with developmental aphasia demonstrated inferior discrimination of sound quality to which a sequencing difficulty could be secondary and suggested that auditory perceptual deficits, particularly of sequencing, may be the primary dysfunction.
Language and phonological skills in children at high risk of reading difficulties.
TLDR
It is concluded that the antecedents of reading difficulty are similar in these two groups of children, with both groups showing deficits in the development of phonological representations.
Temporal Processing Deficits of Language-Learning Impaired Children Ameliorated by Training
TLDR
Children with language-based learning impairments with major deficits in their recognition of some rapidly successive phonetic elements and nonspeech sound stimuli were engaged in adaptive training exercises mounted as computer "games" designed to drive improvements in their "temporal processing" skills.

Language deficits in dyslexic children: speech perception, phonology, and morphology.
TLDR
Investigation of the relationship between dyslexia and three aspects of language: speech perception, phonology, and morphology indicated phonological impairments in children whose speech perception was normal, suggesting that such deficits affect only a subset of dyslexics.

TLDR
The results supported the research that has shown speech and language impaired children to have weaker phonological processing skills than the general population.

Very early language deficits in dyslexic children.
TLDR
At 2 1/2 years of age, children who later developed reading disabilities were deficient in the length, syntactic complexity, and pronunciation accuracy of their spoken language, but not in lexical or speech discrimination skills, but early syntactic proficiency nevertheless accounted for some unique variance in grade 2 achievement when differences at age 5 were statistically controlled.
The relationship between auditory temporal analysis and receptive language development: Evidence from studies of developmental language disorder
TLDR
It was demonstrated that auditory perceptual variables, specifically those requiring rapid temporal analysis, were most highly correlated with the degree of receptive language deficit of the dysphasic children.
