  • Deficits in the processing of auditory input by the central nervous system have been proposed as causal factors in impairments of spoken and written language. Overall, the available evidence suggests that many individuals with spoken and written language impairments also exhibit some kind of auditory processing deficit. However, there is not strong evidence that these auditory processing deficits play causal roles in language impairments for several reasons: (1) Not all individuals with language impairments have auditory processing deficits; (2) interventions that target auditory processing do not consistently lead to improvements in language; (3) auditory processing deficits are not always the best predictors of language outcomes; and (4) there may be other explanations for poor performance on auditory processing tasks. Some hypotheses regarding the role ...
