*What is the difference between the WIPI First Edition and WIPI Second Edition?
- The original authors of the WIPI developed a second edition to clear up the ambiguity of the first edition. In some cases the picture contains a more modern depiction, such as the coke bottle is now 2-liter bottle. About one picture per page was changed.
- The word list was changed. Therefore, the WIPI recording must correspond to the correct version.
- The WIPI First Edition is available only on CD-Rom. Picture CD-Roms are designed to be displayed on a computer screen; however, customers may print the pictures and place them in a three-ring binder. WIPI pictures must be printed in color to obtain accurate test results. The WIPI Second Edition is available either or CD-Rom or as a printed book.
- If you are unsure whether you own the first or second edition, check the color of the cover. If you own one of the old printed WIPI First Edition books, the cover will be either blue or green. The WIPI Second Edition is a dark red/ maroon color.
Does Auditec offer a picture-pointing test for young children in other languages? Yes, a similar test is available in Spanish called the Spanish Pediatric Picture Identification Test. If your pediatric patient speaks a different language, consider employing a test with nonverbal stimuli such as the Sound Effects Recognition Test.
