Auditory Perception in Learning Disabled and Nonlearning Disabled Culturally Different Pupils.
McGovern, Jill E.
The auditory perception skills of 32 learning disabled (LD) and 32 non LD culturally different elementary pupils were compared. Results of the Wepman Auditory Discrimination Test and three subtests of the Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities indicated consistent differences between the two groups on all four measures of auditory perception (auditory discrimination, auditory memory, auditory closure, and sound blending). Both groups evidenced deficiencies in auditory perception skills, with auditory memory skills being the least deficient and sound blending the most deficient. Among the educational implications of the study was the need for directing primary attention to the treatment of learning disabilities in the culturally different LD child. (CL)
