averaged electroencephalic audiometry

A method of testing the hearing of children who cannot be adequately tested by conventional means. The test is based on the electroencephalogram's being altered by perceived sound without the need for a behavioral response; therefore, the test may be done on an autistic, severely retarded, or hyperkinetic child who is asleep or sedated.
