Gravel, Judith S.; Wallace, Ina F.
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v43 n3 p631-44 Jun 2000
Hearing sensitivity was examined prospectively in 114 young children as a function of otitis media with effusion (OEM)status in years 1, 2, and 3. Results indicated that children classified as bilaterally OME positive in years 1, 2, and 3 had significantly poorer hearing than children classified as bilaterally OME free at these periods.
