Perfect Time to Start APD Testing

Whether you are in a hospital, school, or private practice setting, NOW is the time to start APD testing. You have time to review the materials and be ready for your clients when people get back to their daily lives. A popular question around here is “What APD battery should I buy?” If you are just starting out, I would recommend one of the following:

The APD Battery (Item CD170-9) is ideal for communities that have non-English speakers or areas with multiple cultural accents because all of the tests are nonverbal. It includes the Gaps In Noise (GIN), Random Gap Detection Test (RGDT), Pitch Pattern Sequence-Musiek Version, Duration Pattern Sequence-Musiek Version, and Masking Level Difference-Tones. Each test has its own instructions with normative data for various ages. The APD Battery costs $329.75 US funds plus shipping (free shipping in the US).

The MAPA-2 Battery (Item CD179-9) is another popular choice. This battery includes a mix of verbal and nonverbal recordings. It is comprised of monaural, temporal, and binaural testing. A testing manual is provided with interpretation for ages 7-14. The MAPA-2 Battery costs $215.00 US funds plus shipping (free shipping in the US).

The SCAN-3 Battery is also widely used in the audiology community. It can be used as a screening test or diagnostic tool. This battery also consists of both verbal and nonverbal recordings. The SCAN-3 Child Version (Item CD121-9) includes a manual and normative data for ages 5-12. It costs $325.70 US funds. The SCAN-3 Adult & Adolescent Version (Item CD122-9) includes a manual and interpretation for ages 13-60. This version also costs $325.70 US funds plus shipping (free shipping in the US).

Many factors can affect your choice of APD Batteries such as language, age group, and budget. Whether you choose the APD Battery, MAPA-2, SCAN-3, or decide to build a custom APD Battery from the large variety in our catalog, Auditec is here to supply your needs with fast friendly service.
