Friday, Apr 7
8:00 AM – 5:00 PM

This study aimed to evaluate the performance of children with and without learning difficulties based on an online program, developed as a screening tool of auditory abilities, as well as to correlate the scores obtained in each group in a self-report questionnaire to the performance on auditory screening. Our results demonstrates the effectiveness of the online auditory program screening to distinguish children with and without learning difficulties and more studies are necessary, regarding it specificity and sensibility.
