|Title:||Central Auditory Processing Outcome After Stroke In Children [processamento Auditivo Central Em Crianças Com Acidente Vascular Cerebral]|
|Abstract:||Objective: To investigate central auditory processing in children with unilateral stroke and to verify whether the hemisphere affected by the lesion influenced auditory competence.Method: 23 children (13 male) between 7 and 16 years old were evaluated through speech-in-noise tests (auditory closure); dichotic digit test and staggered spondaic word test (selective attention); pitch pattern and duration pattern sequence tests (temporal processing) and their results were compared with control children. Auditory competence was established according to the performance in auditory analysis ability.Results: Was verified similar performance between groups in auditory closure ability and pronounced deficits in selective attention and temporal processing abilities. Most children with stroke showed an impaired auditory ability in a moderate degree.Conclusion: Children with stroke showed deficits in auditory processing and the degree of impairment was not related to the hemisphere affected by the lesion.|
