Do younger consumers recognize the voices of their parents? Or can older consumers di¡erentiate the voices of their close caregivers or support sta¡? What are their reactions to loud sounds? People with autism are known to have unusual auditory de¢cits (Konstantareas & Homatidis, 1987; Schlopler, Reichler, DeVellis, & Daly, 1980). Autistic consumers often show inconsistent responses to acoustic stimuli. They are usually unresponsive to human voices and often avoid making any direct eye contact.

The term consumer as used here means individuals with CP and/or developmental disabilities. Use of this term removes the negative connotation often associated with disabilities such as CP, mental retardation, Down’s syndrome, and autism as well as others. The term is used interchangeably to refer to either people with CP or developmental disabilities or both as necessary. Because CP is not a disease, several techniques have been used to (re)habilitate this population. These methods include the use of surgery to correct some of the physical deformities and the use of prostheses, drugs, physical therapy, speech therapy, and audiologic rehabilitation to ameliorate the challenges presented by CP itself as well as other associated handicapping conditions.
