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.

The Modified Rhyme Test is considered a word recognition or speech discrimination test. It consists of a series of four fifty word lists. The first and last fifty words are “in quiet” though there is a subdued white noise about 30 dB below the stimulus words. The second and third series of fifty words are in noise, the S/N selected to provide a predicted percent correct for normal listeners, labeled “P83 and P76” respectively. It is a multiple choice-pencil paper test. Each list begins with instructions and several practice items. The recording length is approximately 23 minutes.

Child Spondees

The Child Spondees is considered a speech threshold (or speech reception threshold-SRT) test. It is a list of spondaic words that was selected to be familiar to children. AUDiTEC™ recorded 51 words in one randomization. The medium SRT is 20 dB SPL. (Consider Picture Spondee Words for young or non-verbal patients.)

The standard amount of time given for the patient to respond is approximately four seconds. Short-interval versions only give the patient 2.5 seconds for the patient to  respond. It is an effective way to speed up administration time, but this version is not recommended for young children or the elderly.

Santiago APD Battery

Santiago APD Battery 
A compact disc with the following Spanish language tests:

  • Spanish Dichotic Digits
  • Spanish Filtered Speech
  • Spanish Binaural Fusion
  • Spanish Speech in Noise (at +10 dB and 0 dB signal-to-noise ratios)

The Santiago Auditory Processing Disorders test battery (SAPD) is a set of four tests that assess (central) auditory processing (AP) in native Spanish-speaking adults. SAPD was developed by Adrian Fuente, Ph.D. of the Audiology Lab School of Speech and Hearing Sciences Medical Faculty, University of Chile. Since auditory processing includes various auditory abilities, different tests should be carried out to assess AP.  Some of these tests utilize verbal stimuli while others do not. For those auditory abilities that require verbal material to be assessed, e.g., dichotic listening, auditory performance in competing acoustic signals and auditory performance with degraded acoustic materials, tests with verbal stimuli in the language of the patient must be used. The SAPD battery was created because of this need. The aim of these tests is to assess some of the aspects of AP in Spanish-speaking adult patients suspected to have APD and/or with hearing complaints other than those associated with reduced hearing thresholds.

Each of the tests aims to assess different aspects of central auditory processing.

  • Speech-in-noise requires recognition of monosyllable in the presence of white noise, according to ASHA (1996) it fits the low redundancy monaural speech category.
  • Filtered Speech requires recognition of monosyllables that have been low pass filtered, a low redundancy category.
  • Binaural fusion requires recognition of monosyllables whose low frequency spectrum is presented to one ear and high frequency spectrum simultaneously to the other ear, this test is in the binaural interaction category.
  • Dichotic digits requires the patient to repeat two pairs of digits which are presented simultaneously to both ears, it is in the dichotic speech category.

Auditec recommends buying the Santiago APD Battery as a full set. However, Auditec sells the tests individually as well for those with budget restraints.  Normative data was derived from a population of native Spanish speaking persons living in Chile.  As in any language, there are differences in dialect and one needs to verify these data on the local population.

The Santiago APD Battery includes a) audio recording, and b) manual and score forms as printable pdf files on CDRom. The extensive manual is provided in both Spanish and English. It includes administration, scoring, and interpretation information. Normative data is included for adults only. It can be assumed children over the age of 12 will do as well (or nearly as well) as adults. Available from Auditec, Inc. Call 1-800-669-9065 (from US) or 314-416-1050 (outside the US) to order.

SIN

The Speech in Noise (SIN)¹ test was developed to help determine how much a given hearing aid or pair of hearing aids helps an individual understand speech in a background of noise, compared to listening unaided or with other hearing aids. The test consists of a series of female-talker recordings of the IEEE (modified Harvard) sentences as the target speech, and four-talker babble (three women and one man) as the noise source. Five sentences are recorded at each of four signal-to-noise (S/N) ratios: 15 dB, 10 dB, 5 dB and 0 dB S/N, all at the 0 dB VU meter calibration level, followed by a similar series recorded at a signal level 30 dB lower than the calibration level (-30 dB re 0 VU).

Therefore, there are 20 sentences at each level for a total of 40 sentences (or 4 IEEE lists), all of which constitutes a block. There are nine blocks of the SIN test, so that nine comparisons can be made without repeating sentences. Each listening condition takes approximately twelve minutes to administer.

The Speech in Noise includes a) audio recording, and b) instructions and score forms as printable pdf files on CD-Rom. The instructions provide information on administration. 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.
