Standard clinical audiologic assessments have proven useful in the detection and diagnosis of auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (ANSD). However, beyond initial diagnosis, clinicians have fewer tools to appropriately manage infants and young children with ANSD. While cortical auditory evoked potentials (CAEP) are not currently used routinely in the management of children with ANSD, mounting evidence suggests that they are not only recordable in this population, but that they may provide useful information regarding treatment and behavioral outcomes in children with ANSD. The report discusses the potential clinical utility of CAEPs in children with ANSD, using a case illustration.
