Introduction:Communication disorders are some of the most prevalent childhood complaints, manifesting as delay or atypical development involving functional components of hearing, speech and/or language at varying levels of severity.
Objective:To characterize short (BAEP) and long latency (P300) auditory evoked potentials in children with language disorders, comparing them to children with typical language development.
Method:Case-control, observational and descriptive study. Children aged between 7 and 14 years of both sexes participated in this study. The sample was divided into 2 groups: case and control. All subjects were evaluated with the following tests: audiometry, impedance, ABR and P300. This research was developed at the Clinic School of Speech Therapy at UNIPLAN in Brasília - DF.
Results:As for the ABR in relation to the means of absolute latencies, interpeak latencies and the laterality of the ears, it was observed that both groups presented results within the normality parameters. In the P300, of the 8 subjects of the evaluated case group, 7 presented alterations in the latency and/or amplitude of the responses. The results show that there is a difference between the responses obtained in the case group compared to the control group.
Conclusion:A trend of altered electrophysiological responses at P300 was observed in individuals with childhood language disorders.
