Comparative Evaluation of the Auditory Responsiveness of Normal Infants and Profoundly Multihandicapped Children.
Flexer, Carol; Gans, Donald P.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v28 n2 p163-68 Jun 1985
Responses to sound were observed in two groups of children (one developmentally normal, the other older but profoundly multihandicapped). Results showed no significant differences between groups. In both groups, however, responsiveness was dependent on hearing level and bandwidth but not on meaningfulness. Results support the practice of evaluating auditory responsiveness of multihandicapped children in relation to developmental age. (Author/CL)
