Abstract

Four year old male and female children from low and middle socio economic class (SEC) were presented a dichotic syllable task. Both low and middle SEC males evidenced significant right ear advantages. Neither the low nor middle SEC females evidenced a significant right ear advantage. The similar ear advantage in the low and middle SEC populations replicates a previous study with six year olds and suggests that the variations in rearing conditions which occur in low and middle SEC classes do not affect hemispheric lateralization for speech perception.
