Delays in Auditory Processing Identified in Preschool Children with FASD
Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research, 04/16/2012Stephen JM et al.
Auditory delay revealed by magnetoencephalography in children with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs) may prove to be a useful neural marker of information processing difficulties in young children with prenatal alcohol exposure. The fact that delayed auditory responses were observed across the FASD spectrum suggests that it may be a sensitive measure of alcohol–induced brain damage. Therefore, this measure in conjunction with other clinical tools may prove useful for early identification of alcohol affected children, particularly those without dysmorphia.
