PSI

The Pediatric Speech Intelligibility Test-Standard version is a test for children ages 3 to 6. It fits in two important auditory processing domains. It can be categorized as both a dichotic test and a monaural low-redundancy speech test (monaural separation closure-MSC) sensitive to low brainstem.

The importance of speech audiometry, especially where the test materials include both monosyllabic words and sentences, has been well established for adults. Experience with performance vs. intensity (PI) functions and message to competition ratio (MCR) functions with adults led to the development of an analogous test for children; the Pediatric Speech Intelligibility (PSI) test.

The PSI-Standard includes both monosyllabic words and and two sets of sentences recorded in quiet and with competition (auditory figure ground). The test employs color plates with pictures of animals (animals were use to avoid ethnic biases) which represent either the sentences or the words. It is an extremely useful tool for the investigation of peripheral and auditory processing with children down to a language age of three or slightly younger.

The test includes: a) corresponding laminated color plates, b) audio test recording, and c) manual and score forms as printable pdf files. This extensive manual includes background, administration, and interpretation information including normative data for young children.

Random Gap Detection Test – Standard & Expanded

The RGDT-Standard and Expanded version is an auditory processing disorder test for ages 5 and up using non-verbal stimuli. It is considered a temporal test using temporal resolution and is sensitive to cortical particularly left temporal lobe lesions.

The RGDT-Standard and Expanded includes the standard RGDT in its entirety along with an expanded portion at the end. The expanded portion of the test is included for individuals whose gap detection threshold exceeds 40 msec.  This test begins at time intervals longer than those measured by the standard portion of the RGDT, and includes time intervals of 10 msec. between 40 and 100 msec, and 50 msec. intervals between 100 and 300 msec.  The expanded portion of the test is administered in the same manner as the standard portion.

Individuals who require the expanded portion of the test have already demonstrated abnormal temporal processing abilities. The single purpose is to determine the time interval in which their gap detection thresholds exist. This information can be used to measure improvement in temporal processing abilities following remediation. By definition, patients with temporal processing disorders will have a wide range of gap detection thresholds. Therefore, there are no normative data associated with the expanded portion of the RGDT.

The Random Gap Detection Test-Standard and Expanded includes a) audio recording, and b) manual and score forms as printable pdf files. The 31-page manual pertains to the standard portion of the test. It is comprised of sections on development, background, administration, and interpretation. It includes normative data for ages 5 and up. An additional sheet with sections on administration and interpretation is included for the expanded portion of the test. Available from Auditec, Inc.  Call 1-800-669-9065 (from US) or 314-416-1050 (outside the US) to order. FREE shipping to the contiguous US.

Random Gap Detection Test (RGDT) – Standard

The Random Gap Detection Test-Standard (RGDT) is an auditory processing disorder test for ages 5 and up using non-verbal stimuli. It is considered a temporal test using temporal resolution and is sensitive to cortical particularly left temporal lobe lesions.

This test is a variation on the AFT-R.  It differs from the AFT-R:  First, in the AFT-R, the stimulus presentations are in serial order from no gap to large gap and back to no gap, often resulting in perseveration in some subjects.  Since randomization successfully eliminates the problem of perseveration, the RGDT gap duration presentations of the stimuli are randomized.  Second, the number of test frequencies has been reduced to four.  Third, Click stimuli have been added. The developer states it takes approximately 10 minutes to administer and score the RGDT.

The Random Gap Detection Test-Standard (RGDT) includes a) audio recording, and b) manual and score forms as printable pdf files. The 31-page manual is comprised of sections on development, background, administration, and interpretation. It includes normative data for ages 5-7, 8, 9, and 10-11. The developer recommends using the normative data for the 10-11 age category as a guideline for testing patients older than 11. (Normative values for the AFT-R are included for ages 5-70 due to their similarity.) Available from Auditec, Inc.  Call 1-800-669-9065 (from US) or 314-416-1050 (outside the US) to order.

Duration Pattern Sequence-Standard Version

The Duration Pattern Sequence (DPS) -Standard version is an auditory processing disorder test for ages 11 and up using non-verbal stimuli. It is considered a temporal test using auditory pattern temporal ordering (APTO) and is sensitive to cortical lesions, interhemispheric transfer.

Similar to the Pitch Pattern Sequence (PPS) test, the Duration Pattern Sequence (DPS)-Standard also explores pattern perception. However, instead of employing tones of different frequencies, the DPS test uses a single frequency tone at two dissimilar durations. Specifically, each pattern is made up of three 1000 Hz tones of one of two durations. That is, two short, one long or one long, two short, in disparate patterns. There is a total of 60 presentations plus 10 additional patterns for practice.

Duration Pattern Sequence-Standard includes a) audio recording, and b) instructions and score forms as printable pdf files. The one-page instructions consist of administration and interpretation. Normative data is included for adults only. It would be reasonable to expect children over the age of eleven to test as well (or nearly as well) as adults.

Spondee Binaural Fusion

The Spondee Binaural Fusion is an auditory processing disorder test for both children and adults using verbal stimuli. It is considered a binaural interaction test. It consists of selected child spondee words which have been band-pass filtered in two frequency bands: one for one channel (ear) and the other for the second channel. The low band extends from 500 to 700 Hz, the high band from 1.9 kHz to 2.1 kHz. The recording begins with pulsed speech spectrum noise, passed through the same filters for the purpose of establishing thresholds for those particular frequency bands. These thresholds are to be used to establish the proper presentation levels. Administration time is approximately four minutes.

The Spondee Binaural Fusion includes: a) audio recording, and b) instructions and word list. The one-page instructions include administration, scoring, and interpretation information. Normative data is included, but it is not age-specific. Available from Auditec, Inc.  Call 1-800-669-9065 (from US) or 314-416-1050 (outside the US) to order. FREE shipping to contiguous US.
