Until the Auditory Fusion Test-Revised was released, one aspect of temporal (central) processing, gap detection (temporal resolution), had been generally ignored. The Auditory Fusion Test–Revised (AFT-R) was produced in response to the ASHA task force position statement on central auditory processing to fill this void. AFT-R is an easily administered and efficient test for identifying temporal processing deficits including problems with temporal resolution and gap detection. AFT-R has the distinct advantage of being a non-linguistic measure, making linguistic background irrelevant in interpretation of results. Normative data are included in the manual.
The Auditory Fusion Test-Revised includes a) audio recording, and b) instructions and score form as printable pdf files. Available from Auditec, Inc. Call 1-800-669-9065 (from US) or 314-416-1050 (outside the US) to order. FREE shipping to contiguous US locations.

The Random Gap Detection Test is considered a more recent version of this test. Although the more recent version is preferred by most professionals, the AFT-R still proves to be useful to some audiologists.
