To Investigate the Association between Vestibular Maturity and Partial Auditory Abilities in Children Aged 4-8 Years
Erzsébet Sarlós Hungary
This study is a part of my doctoral research, in which we examined the possibilities of sensorimotor development. We also conducted an impact assessment on the development of sensorimotor development, and auditory and visual skills. Auditory skills are essential at certain speech perception stages, speech perception, speech comprehension, and speech training. The same applies to auditory learning skills and several other skills which form the basis of school learning. It is essential to know which foundational factors, in addition to organic maturity, are necessary for the perfect functioning of auditory sub-skills. One such factor may be vestibular maturity. Over a period from 2018 to 2019, we studied the association between vestibular functions and partial auditory abilities in 391 children aged 4–8 years. In the research, we found a strong, positive significant correlation between vestibular maturity and partial auditory abilities.
