• The Phonological Processing Index portion is administered using recorded speech. Subtests include Word (Pair) Discrimination, Phonological Deletion, Phonological Blending, and Syllabic Blending (Supplemental).

• The Auditory Memory Index portion is administered using live voice. Subtests include Number Memory Forward, Word Memory, Sentence Memory, and Number Memory Reversed (Supplemental).

• The Listening Comprehension Index portion is administered using recorded speech for subtests Processing Oral Directions (without background noise) and Auditory Figure-Ground (Processing Oral Directions with background noise) (Supplemental); however, the Auditory Comprehension subtest is administered using live voice.

Administration time is 60-90 minutes.

The TAPS-4 includes a) audio recording, b) manual and score forms. The extensive manual includes normative data for ages 5-21. Available from Auditec, Inc. Call 1-800-669-9065 (from US) or 314-416-1050 (outside the US) to order. FREE shipping within the contiguous US.

It may be used as a screener to be followed by other behavioral or physiological tests or it may be used for a preliminary diagnosis in the auditory area. The test is administered via CD and can be used in a clinical setting or a sound booth. Administration time is 30-40 minutes.

The MAPA-2 includes eight different subtests in the three domains (monaural, temporal, and binaural) that ASHA and AAA recommend for auditory processing assessment along with the Scale of Auditory Behaviors, a 12-item parent or teacher completed questionnaire of listening behaviors.

Monaural: Evaluate an individual’s ability to use low redundancy information.

  2. Speech in Noise for Children (SINCA): Assesses an individual’s ability to recognize monosyllabic word pairs presented with competing pink noise at progressively decreasing signal-to-noise ratios

    Temporal: Evaluate an individual’s ability to use acoustic information over time.

  3. Tap Test: Assesses an individual’s ability to recognize and label an auditory pattern
  4. Pitch Pattern Test: Assesses an individual’s ability to use cues including rate and pattern and to label what is heard

    Binaural: Evaluate an individual’s ability to use unique information presented simultaneously to each ear.

  5. Dichotic Digits: Assesses an individual’s ability to recognize digit sequences when digit pairs are presented simultaneously to each ear
