Attention Deficits: Is it ADD/ADHD or APD?

Children with attention deficits can be hard to diagnose. Is it attention deficit disorder (ADD)/ Attention Deficit Hyper Activity Disorder (ADHD) or is it an Auditory Processing Disorder (APD)? Auditec offers tools to help professionals correctly diagnose children so that appropriate steps can be taken to manage the attention deficit.

Many professionals still rely on solely on subjective information such as observations by parents and teachers to diagnose ADD/ADHD. However, there is an objective, quantifiable test to help diagnose (or rule out) ADD/ADHD as a cause of the child’s attention deficit. It is called the Auditory Continuous Performance Test (ACPT). This test is a recorded word list given in quiet (no background noise). The child listens and responds to a target word. It is a pass or fail test with normative data on ages 6-11.

Auditec provides established and reliable tests like the Auditory Continuous Performance Test. With these tools, skilled professionals can confidently diagnose children with the correct disorder(s). Then recommendations can be customized according to the diagnosis to help the patient succeed in life. “Problem kids” become superheroes, and their skilled professionals do too!

Auditory Continuous Performance Test (ACPT)

The Auditory Continuous Performance Test (ACPT) was developed to screen for auditory attention deficits. It can aid in the diagnosis of ADD or ADHD in children 6 through 11. The child listens to a list of words and raises a thumb every time he or she hears the target word. Total test time is approximately 15 minutes. Watch the video! (See below.)

The ACPT includes a) audio recording, b) manual and score forms¹ as printable pdf files. The 46-page manual is comprised of sections on administration and scoring, interpretation, and test development. It is available from Auditec, Inc.  Call 1-800-669-9065 (from US) or 314-416-1050 (outside the US) to order. FREE shipping on orders within the contiguous US.
