Neural correlates of auditory processing difficulties (APD) in children with high functioning ASD

2019 Pilot

Cincinnati Childrens Hospital Medical Center
Cincinnati, Ohio
United States


Despite reporting auditory processing difficulties (APD), children with these difficulties have not been found to have underlying hearing problems when tested by audiologists. Rather, imaging studies by this research team have shown brain differences in children with APD in areas relevant to speech, but not other types of sounds. This study will look at brain imaging of children with APD and autism to understand the connections between speech and other brain areas. Understanding these connections may help identify disruptions to these connections in individuals with autism. This understanding may lead to new ways to improve communication in children with autism by targeting the brain connections related to speech.
