15th ANNUAL EARLY HEARING DETECTION & INTERVENTION MEETING
March 13-15, 2016 • San Diego, CA
| - | 4 - Early Intervention
Early intervention for children with auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (ANSD) can be challenging due to the inter- and intra-patient variability. We will describe research from our laboratory, which shows that the P1 cortical auditory evoked response biomarker is an index of cortical maturation and severity of cortical dys-synchrony in children with ANSD. Further, using a case study approach, we will demonstrate that the P1 response is a reliable predictor of behavioral outcome and a useful guide in monitoring and guiding clinical decisions in children with ANSD. Use of the P1 biomarker in pediatric audiology may potentially help clinicians with decision-making regarding audiological intervention with amplification and/or electrical stimulation in complex pediatric ANSD cases.
Work supported by the National Institutes of Health
- describe biomarkers of central auditory maturation in children with hearing loss and ANSD.
- describe the challenges to early intervention in children with ANSD.
- describe the use of the P1 biomarker in guiding early intervention in children with ANSD.
