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 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 six through eleven is included. It would be reasonable to expect children over the age of eleven to test as well (or nearly as well) as adults. Available from Auditec, Inc.
