We studied the impact 01 central auditory processing disorder (CAPO) and cognitive deficit (CO) on the sell-assessment 01 hearing handicap in 122 elderly subjects. Sell-assessment was Quantified by means 01 the Hearing Handicap Inventory for the Elderly (HHIEJ. Results showed their cognitive impairment exerted no significant effect on the self·assessment 01 hearing handicap. Subjects with CAPO, however, rated themselves as significantly more handicapped than non-CAPD subjects. Furthermore this difference did not interact with degree 01 loss. It was present even in subjects without significant peripheral sensitivity loss. These results support the conclusion that CAPO status is a relevant dimension in the evaluation of the elderly subject with or without peripheral hearing loss.
