Understanding pathways to auditory processing disorders in infants at high risk for ASD
Chapel Hill, North Carolina
This study will examine how auditory processing difficulties develop in infants and toddlers in families affected by autism – with the potential to guide the development of early interventions. The researchers will assess 20 infants (12 to 18 months) at high risk for autism (from autism families) and 20 low risk babies (from unaffected families). Using electroencephalography (EEG), they will identify differences in brain activity related to auditory processing and look for correlations between autism symptoms, differences in auditory processing and language development.
