Central Processing Dysfunctions in Children: A Review of Research.
Chalfant, James C.; Scheffelin, Margaret A.
Research on central processing dysfunctions in children is reviewed in three major areas. The first, dysfunctions in the analysis of sensory information, includes auditory, visual, and haptic processing. The second, dysfunction in the synthesis of sensory information, covers multiple stimulus integration and short-term memory. The third area of research, dysfunctions in symbolic operations, concerns auditory language, decoding and encoding written language, and quantitative language. In addition, research needs are summarized. (JD)
