Prevalence and Remediation of Spatial Processing Disorder (SPD) in Indigenous Children in Regional Australia
(International Journal of Audiology, 2014)
This study aimed to determine the prevalence of spatial processing disorder (SPD) in the Indigenous Australian population and the benefit of and logistical issues arising from remediation of the disorder. Design: ...
Efficacy of the LiSN & Learn auditory training software: randomized blinded controlled study
(Audiology Research, 2012)
Children with a spatial processing disorder (SPD) require a more favorable signal-to-noise ratio in the classroom because they have difficulty perceiving sound source location cues. Previous research has shown that a novel ...
Comparison of two working memory test paradigms: Correlation with academic performance in school-aged children
(International Journal of School and Cognitive Psychology, 2014)
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between two different working memory task paradigms and academic achievement. Participants were 202 Australian primary-school children who were assessed on the ...
Objective cortical evaluation of infants wearing hearing aids
(American Academy of Audiology, 2014-07)
Sensitivity of cortical auditory evoked potential detection for hearing-impaired infants in response to short speech sounds
(Audiology Research, 2012)
Cortical auditory evoked potentials (CAEPs0 are an emerging tool for hearing aid fitting evaluation in young children who cannot provide reliable behavioral feedback. It is therefore useful to determine the relationship ...
CAEPs in (un)aided normal-hearing and hearing-impaired adults
(Seminars in Hearing, 2015)
Introduction Cortical auditory evoked potentials (CAEPs) are influenced by the characteristics of the stimulus, including level and hearing aid gain. Previous studies have measured CAEPs aided and unaided in individuals ...
Objective measurement of speech audibility - value to the client and clinic
(Audiology Australia, 2013-04)
The Longitudinal Outcomes of Children with Hearing Impairment (LOCHI) study, being carried out through the National Acoutic Lacoratories (NAL) and Hearing Cooperative Research Centre (CRC), has been running since 2007.
Factors influencing individual variation in perceptual directional microphone benefit
(Journal of the American Academy of Audiology, 2013-02)
Background: Large variations in perceptual directional microphone benefit, which far exceed the variation expected from physical performance measures of directional microphones, have been reported in the literature. The ...
Aided cortical response, speech intelligibility, consonant perception and functional performance of young children using conventional amplification or nonlinear frequency compression
ABSTRACT Objective: The aim of this study was to compare conventional processing with nonlinear frequency compression (NLFC) in hearing aids for young children with bilateral hearing loss. Methods: Sixty-four children ...
An opinion on the assessment of people who may have an auditory processing disorder
Abstract We need to rethink how we assess auditory processing disorder (APD). The current use of test batteries, while necessary and well-accepted, is at risk of failing as the size of these batteries increases. To counter ...
