Performance of Cerebral Palsied Children under Conditions of Reduced Auditory Input on Selected Intellectual, Cognitive and Perceptual Tasks.
The study investigated the task performance of cerebral palsied children under conditions of reduced auditory input and under normal auditory conditions. A non-cerebral palsied group was studied in a similar manner. Results indicated that cerebral palsied children showed some positive change in performance, under conditions of reduced auditory input, on a recall of missing picture test and an attention test and on certain parts of a learning test and digit span test. They showed no change in performance on visual-perceptual or perceptual-motor tasks. The non-cerebral palsied children showed no significant change in performance under conditions of reduced auditory input. However, since the difference scores of the non-cerebral palsied group did move in a positive direction, a comparison of the performance of the cerebral palsied and the non-cerebral palsied children did not show a statistical difference in the amount of positive change exhibited by the two groups.
