I've experienced extremely high artefact with almost no response to ASSR with a spastic cerebral palsied child with normal ABR and normal OAE findings. I've seen similar results with a cerebral palsied adult as well. Can increased muscle tension as in spasticity affect ASSR response?
If so, how can it affect the response?

If there are high levels of muscle artifact it will be difficult to determine whether ASSRs are present or not. (This should also make it difficult to record the ABR as well). Depending on how important it is you might consider using sedation or anesthetic for your recodings. If you already have ABRs it is probably not sufficiently important.
