NU-6 Ordered by Difficulty Version II©

The NU-6 Ordered by Difficulty Version II© allows the audiologist to reduce the time of testing in cases where the patient has essentially normal word recognition ability.  It is the result of recent research on our original recording by Raymond Hurley and Janet Sells. This is a recording of a male talker.

The lists are ordered from the most difficult to the easiest.  With normal listeners the test can often be terminated after the first 10 words.  This is not a half list; however, there is a provision for termination of the test after 25 words in addition to after the first 10 words. The administration time will vary from 4-21 minutes depending on how well the patient performs.

The NU-6 Ordered by Difficulty Version II© includes a) audio recording, and b) instructions and list. The one-page instructions include method, scoring, and interpretation. Normative data is included, but it is not age specific. Available from Auditec, Inc. Use the “Buy Now” button below or call 1-800-669-9065 (from US) or 314-416-1050 (outside the US) to order.

Pediatric Speech Intelligibility©

The Pediatric Speech Intelligibility Test© 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 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 used 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.

⇒What is the difference between Forms A, B, C, and D and which one should I choose?  The NU-6 lists have been recorded in four randomizations called “forms” to prevent memorization.

W-22 Ordered by Difficulty©

The W-22 Ordered by Difficulty© is a word recognition or speech discrimination test. It consists of four lists of 25 words each selected by D. Rose so that they are ordered from most likely to be missed to the least likely. If the first 10 items (or 9 of the 10) are heard correctly, the test is halted, since it is assumed that an individual with word recognition difficulty will be most likely to miss the most difficult items. Persons who miss more than one of the first ten items are given the entire 25-word list. The administration time will vary from 4-21 minutes depending on how well the patient performs.
