The Time Compressed Sentence Test© (TCST) is for identifying and quantifying disorders of auditory processing in children specifically the child’s ability to understand acoustically distorted or rapid rates of speech. In addition, results of testing with the TCST may yield insights into children with slow reaction times and speed of mental processing. It is considered a monaural low redundancy speech test (monaural separation closure -MSC) sensitive to brainstem and cortical lesions. The developer states the TCST can be administered and scored in less than 15 minutes.
The Time Compressed Sentence Test© includes a) audio recording, and b) manual and score forms as printable pdf files. The extensive manual includes administration, scoring, and interpretation information. Age-specific normative data for ages 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10-11 is included. The developer recommends using the normative data for the 10-11 age category as a guideline for testing patients older than 11. Available from Auditec, Inc.
