Time Compressed Sentence Test

The Time Compressed Sentence Test (TCST) is for identifying and quantifying disorders of auditory processing in children specifically the child’s ability to understand acoustically distorted or rapid rates of speech.  In addition, results of testing with the TCST may yield insights into children with slow reaction times and speed of mental processing. It is considered a monaural low redundancy speech test (monaural separation closure -MSC) sensitive to brainstem and cortical lesions. The developer states the TCST can be administered and scored in less than 15 minutes.

The Time Compressed Sentence Test includes a) audio recording, and b) manual and score forms as printable pdf files. The extensive manual includes administration, scoring, and interpretation information. Age-specific normative data for ages 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10-11  is included. The developer recommends using the normative data for the 10-11 age category as a guideline for testing patients older than 11. 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.

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. 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.

⇒What is the difference between the standard and basic version? Auditec recommends purchasing the PSI – Standard Version, which is the full test. It includes the words and two sets of sentence materials which allows for re-testing without having to use the same sentences. However, Auditec also offers the PSI – Basic Version for those with budget restraints. The PSI – Basic Version includes the words and only one set of sentences and should be used on patients who will be tested once.  (The PSI – Standard Version includes the PSI – Basic Version so it is unnecessary to buy both versions.)
