Auditory Assessment of Children from a Psychologist's Point of View.
Mira, Mary P.
Behavioral studies of listening in children with both normal and exceptional hearing are presented. The conjugate of assessing listening is discussed. This method provides a continuous record of ongoing behavior allowing for observation of moment-to-moment changes in listening. It determines how sustained, how strong, and how continuous a child's attention is to a visual and/or auditory stimulus. Results reported from studies of children with normal hearing revealed that listening was not naturally and automatically carried out. Studies of five children with hearing impairment revealed that residual hearing and listening training was no guarantee that the child would consistently make use of his listening ability. Tables showing the performance of these five children are included. (RT)
