Study Summary

The purpose of this study is to learn more about how bilingual individuals process sound in challenging listening environments and how testing language may impact results on auditory processing assessments. Auditory processing evaluations assess specific auditory skills necessary to hear and understand complex auditory signals, but many of these tests rely heavily on language. This poses an issue for individuals with native languages other than English because the test results may not clearly identify whether performance is due to an auditory processing problem or to the language used in the test materials. This study aims to identify whether auditory processing performance differs in Spanish-English bilinguals based on the language of the test materials used (English vs. Spanish). Ultimately, the results of this study may aid in more accurate diagnoses and treatment of auditory processing disorders in bilingual individuals.
