Individuals with neurological lesions (NL) affecting areas associated with central auditory processing often complain of difficulty hearing in noise. The Words-in-Noise test (WIN) is a clinically-useful assessment of hearing in noise, however, limited research exists on the WIN performance of individuals with NL. The study purpose was to investigate WIN performance of individuals with NL. Results indicated abnormal WIN performance for the majority of the participants, suggesting that the WIN test can be a valuable assessment for individuals with NL.
