Kids’ hearing difficulties are reflected in their brainwaves

The researchers found that the presence of noise affects the brainwaves of all children, and so is a relevant factor to consider when thinking about learning environments, but also found that children with listening difficulties have significant differences in certain brainwaves when compared to children with normal hearing in a noisy background. The researchers say that these results will be useful in planning future research into diagnosis and treatment for listening disorders.
