Infants (N=24) with history of otitis media and tube placement were tested for categorical responding within a visual familiarization-discrimination model. Findings suggest that even mild hearing loss may adversely affect categorical responding under specific input conditions, which may persist after normal hearing is restored, possibly because fluctuating hearing loss would cause low-phonetic-substance articles to vacillate above and below attentional thresholds.
