The Selective Auditory Attention Test (SAAT) is an auditory processing disorder test for ages 4-9. It is considered a monaural low-redundancy speech test (monaural separation closure-MSC) sensitive to low brainstem. This auditory figure ground test that was developed to aid in the early identification of young children who have poor ability to attend (attention deficit), especially in noise.
The SAAT is a closed-set, picture-pointing task, employing the WIPI, 1st ed. words and pictures. SAAT consists of two parts, two lists of WIPI words in quiet and two lists imbedded (mixed) in a semantic distracter, which is a competing message (an interesting story). The signal-to-noise ratio is a nominal 0 dB.
The SAAT should be given in a moderately quiet environment either through earphones or over a loudspeaker. Normative data for children from age four to nine are included in the manual.
The SAAT includes: a) audio recording, b) manual and score forms as printable pdf files. This extensive manual contains information on administration, scoring, and interpretation. Grade-specific normative data is included for pre-kindergarten through 2nd grade. This item now also includes the WIPI 1st Picture CD-Rom (a $75.00 value!). Available from Auditec, Inc.
