The standard Pitch Pattern Sequence (PPS)-Adult Version is for ages 9-65. It is an auditory processing disorder test using non-verbal stimuli. The test is considered a temporal test using auditory pattern temporal ordering (APTO) and is sensitive to cortical lesions, interhemispheric transfer.
It consists of a series of three tones presented at either of two frequencies (pitches). The subject’s task is to describe the pitches of the tones presented. The test is a monaural test that evaluates both pattern perception and temporal sequencing ability while excluding verbal cues. Relative hemispheric involvement can often be observed by having the patient give a motor response (usually verbal) in the first trial and a humming response for the second trial.
The standard Pitch Pattern Sequence-Adult Version includes a) audio recording, b) instructions and score forms as printable pdf files. The two-page instructions include administration, scoring, and interpretation information. Normative data is included for ages 9-65. Available from Auditec, Inc.
