The NTID Speech-Reading DVD (also known as the CID Sentences DVD) is a video recording with Diane Castle, Ph.D., audiologist and former NTID faculty member as the speaker. It has been used as a test of speech-reading and auditory recognition at NTID since 1972. There are ten sets of ten sentences each. The purpose of this test is to assess the ability to receive information when:
a) Speech-reading alone
b) Speech-reading and listening combined.
c) Listening alone.
The sentences are from the CID Everyday Speech sentences developed by Central Institute for the Deaf in concert with the criteria set forth by the Committee on Hearing and Bio-Acoustics (CHABA) of the National Research Council. These criteria specified that sentences should closely resemble “everyday speech” in such parameters as vocabulary, sentence length, syntactical structure and redundancy.
The information gleaned from the use of this movie will help the professional describe functional receptive communication skills and may be used to assist in planning aural rehabilitation. The test DVD may be played back via a DVD player with a remote control or via a computer employing the DVD media player software.
The NTID Speech-Reading DVD includes: a) DVD, and b) manual. The 25-page manual is comprised of instructions, test lists, and interim interlist equivalency data. Available from Auditec, Inc..

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. Available from Auditec, Inc.
