Hersher, Leonard – Perceptual and Motor Skills, 1978
The frequency of otitis media among 22 hyperactive children (ages 7-to-13 years) with learning disorders was compared with the frequency of otitis media in a sample of 772 normal matched-age children. (Author/PHR)

Carroll, Julia M.; Breadmore, Helen L. – Developmental Science, 2018
Children with reading difficulties and children with a history of repeated ear infections (Otitis Media, OM) are both thought to have phonological impairments, but for quite different reasons. This paper examines the profile of phonological and morphological awareness in poor readers and children with OM. Thirty-three poor readers were compared to…

Adams, Daniel J.; Susi, Apryl; Erdie-Lalena, Christine R.; Gorman, Gregory; Hisle-Gorman, Elizabeth; Rajnik, Michael; Elrod, Marilisa; Nylund, Cade M. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2016
Acute otitis media (AOM) symptoms can be masked by communication deficits, common to children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). We sought to evaluate the association between ASD and otitis media. Using ICD-9-CM diagnostic codes, we performed a retrospective case-cohort study comparing AOM, and otitis-related diagnoses among children with and…

Swift, Valerie May; Doyle, June Elisabeth; Richmond, Holly Jane; Morrison, Natasha Rose; Weeks, Sharon Anne; Richmond, Peter Craig; Brennan-Jones, Christopher Gerard; Lehmann, Deborah – Deafness & Education International, 2020
The majority of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (hereafter referred to as "Aboriginal") people live in urban centres. Otitis media (OM) occurs at a younger age, prevalence is higher and hearing loss and other serious complications are more common in Aboriginal than non-Aboriginal children. Despite this, data on the…

Winskel, Heather – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2006
Background: Otitis media (OM) or middle ear infection is a common childhood illness and is most frequent during the crucial first 3 years of life when speech and language categories are being established, which could potentially have a long-term effect on language and literacy skill development. Aims: The purpose of the current study was to…

Vernon-Feagans, Lynne; Hurley, Megan M.; Yont, Kristine M.; Wamboldt, Patricia M.; Kolak, Amy – Journal of Applied Developmental Psychology, 2007
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between the quality of childcare and experience with otitis media (middle ear disease) as they relate to children's early naturalistic language development. Sixty children were followed longitudinally from childcare entry in the first year of life until three years of age. Half the children…

Scaldwell, William A. – Journal of American Indian Education, 1989
Finds that lower reading scores were related to evidence of past or present middle ear infection among 524 American Indian children in northern and southern Ontario. Discusses the high incidence of otitis media among young Indian children, and educational implications. Contains 29 references. (SV)

Grievink, Eefje H.; And Others – Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, 1993
This follow-up study to the Nijmegen Otitis Media study evaluated 270 children (age 7). A history of otitis media with effusion (OME), even up to nine instances, did not have negative consequences for language performance at age seven. Intermittent, as opposed to more continuous, OME was not found to affect language ability negatively. (Author/JDD)

Haapala, Sini; Niemitalo-Haapola, Elina; Raappana, Antti; Kujala, Tiia; Kujala, Teija; Jansson-Verkasalo, Eira – First Language, 2015
Many children experience recurrent acute otitis media (RAOM) in early childhood. In a previous study, 2-year-old children with RAOM were shown to have immature neural patterns for speech sound discrimination. The present study further investigated the consonant inventories of these same children using natural speech samples. The results showed…

Berwick, Donald M.; Thibodeau, Lawrence A. – Journal of Medical Education, 1980
Over 13 weeks during two periods in 1978 the diagnostic rate for acute otitis media was monitored among febrile children in the emergency room of a large children's hospital. Temporal variation in diagnostic rates by physicians was largely attributable to differences among individual providers and independent of level of training. (Author/MLW)

Gunnarson, Adele D.; And Others – Topics in Language Disorders, 1990
This article reviews auditory deprivation effects on anatomy, physiology, and behavior in animals and discusses the sequelae of otitis media with effusion (OME) in children. Focused on are central auditory processing disorders associated with early fluctuating hearing loss from OME. (DB)

Roberts, Joanne E., Ed.; Wallace, Ina F., Ed.; Henderson, Frederick W., Ed. – 1997
The 12 chapters of this book provide a synthesis of what is currently known about otitis media and its sequelae on aspects of child development. Chapters are grouped into four sections: definition, prevalence, and diagnosis; auditory, language, and learning sequelae; medical and surgical management; and international perspectives and future…

Gravel, Judith S.; Wallace, Ina F. – Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, 1992
Examination of 23 4-year-old children classified otitis media negative or positive during their first year of life indicated that otitis positive children required a more advantageous signal-to-competition ratio for sentence intelligibility, compared to otitis-negative peers. No intergroup differences were found in receptive or expressive language…

Friel-Patti, Sandy – Topics in Language Disorders, 1990
The article reviews possible effects of the mild, fluctuating hearing loss associated with otitis media with effusion (OME) in children. Two hypotheses, the first assuming an indirect relationship between OME and language mediated by hearing and the second that relationships among OME, hearing, and language may change over time, are presented.

Medley, Lynn P.; And Others – Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, 1995
This article describes the implications of otitis media with effusion (OME) for children with disabilities who are already at risk for speech, language, and learning difficulties. The results of a survey of 189 early childhood special educators on management of young children with OME and the role of the early childhood special educator are…
