Abstract

This study examined the relation of middle ear effusion MEE) in the first three years of life to central auditory processing at age seven. Ears were examined on a regular basis frequently in the home over the first three years and a count of days with bilateral MEE was used to quantify ear status. Central auditory processing was assessed with SCAN, Screening Test for Auditory Processing Disorders. With a sample of 76 children studied prospectively from birth there were significant correlations between MEE and all four SCAN measures. A possible link between SCAN and attention problems was also examined using the Test of Variables of Attention (TOVA). Three of 16 possible correlations were significant, suggesting a weak relation between attention and SCAN.
