This study investigated whether the P3 AERP could be used to reflect behavioral changes resulting from therapeutic intervention in a group of children with central auditory processing disorders (CAPDs). Results showed a significant decrease in P3 latency, along with a significant increase in P3 amplitude, following a structured treatment program. No changes occurred in either the CAPD control group or in the normal control group. These results suggest that the P3 AERP latency and amplitude measures are sensitive to changes in clinical status following a treatment program.
