    Abstract

    This study tested if training can normalize atypical passive auditory event-related potentials in the N1-P2 time window in children with specific reading disability (SRD) or specific language impairment (SLI). Children with SRD or SLI and untrained controls were tested for their behavioral responses and N1-P2 windows to tones, backward-masked tones, vowels, and consonant-vowels. Children with SRD or SLI with poor behavioral responses to one of these sounds trained to discriminate that sound for 30 minutes a day, 4 days a week, for 6 weeks. Post-training measures revealed that training normalized atypical behavioral responses but not atypical N1-P2 windows.
