MULTIPLE AUDITORY PROCESSING ASSESSMENT (MAPA)

The Multiple Auditory Processing Assessment (MAPA) battery is a comprehensive compendium of tests developed to identify children and adults who have auditory processing disorders. It was designed for ages 8 through adult.

MAPA’s purpose is to provide professionals with an auditory test that 1) is standardized with two forms, 2) covers the three most important auditory processing domains as defined by ASHA and 3) uses convenient CD technology for application in the classroom or sound booth.
The areas covered are:

MONAURAL (Low Redundancy)—(Monaural Separation Closure-MSC)

  • Monaural-Selective Auditory Attention Test (MSAAT)*

TEMPORAL (Auditory Pattern Temporal Ordering-APTO)

  • TAP Test
  • Pitch Pattern (PP) Test*

BINAURAL (Dichotic Speech)—(Binaural Integration/Binaural Separation-BIBS)

  • Dichotic Digits (DD)*
  • Competing Sentences (CS)*

In addition several supplementary tests are included:
Pattern Perception
Speech in Noise
Gap Detection

Test time is approximately 21 minutes, while scoring should take an additional 5 minutes.

The MAPA includes a) audio recording, and b) manual and score forms as printable pdf files.  The 59-page manual contains administration, scoring, and interpretation information. Normative data for ages 8 and up is included. (Note: The breakdown of age- specific normative data is as follows: ages 8-9, 10-11, 11-12, and 21-49). Available from Auditec, Inc Call 1-800-669-9065 (from US) or 314-416-1050 (outside the US) to order.

**Is this the same Dichotic Digits, Selective Auditory Attention Test, and Competing Sentences that appear in as separate items in your catalog? No, the MAPA uses shortened and modified versions of these tests.

Pitch Pattern Sequence

The standard Pitch Pattern Sequence (PPS) test is an auditory processing disorder test using non-verbal stimuli. It is considered a temporal test using auditory pattern temporal ordering (APTO) and is sensitive to cortical lesions, interhemispheric transfer.

It consists of a series of three tones presented at either of two frequencies (pitches). The subject’s task is to describe the pitches of the tones presented. The test is a monaural test that evaluates both pattern perception and temporal sequencing ability while excluding verbal cues. Relative hemispheric involvement can often be observed by having the patient give a motor response (usually verbal) in the first trial and a humming response for the second trial.

The standard Pitch Pattern Sequence is available in two versions: 1) Adult Version for ages 9-65, and 2) Child Version for ages 6-9. Each version is sold separately. Therefore, it is necessary to specify the version or item number when ordering. The Pitch Pattern Sequence includes a) audio recording, b) instructions and score forms as printable pdf files. The two-page instructions include administration, scoring, and interpretation information. Normative data is included for the ages that correspond to the test version. 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.

Dichotic Digits – Standard Version

The Dichotic Digits-Standard version test is an auditory processing disorder test using verbal stimuli. It is considered a dichotic test for binaural integration sensitive to brainstem, cortical, and corpus callosal lesions.

This established test assesses the ability to process different materials arriving at the ears simultaneously. Fifty sets of digits, one through nine (except seven, having two syllables) are presented either in single pairs or double pairs. The digits begin and end simultaneously.

Dichotic Digits-Standard version includes a) audio recording, and b) instructions and score forms as printable pdf files. The one-page instructions consist of administration, scoring, and interpretation information. Normative data* for double digits is included; however, it is only available for ages 11 and up. Available from Auditec, IncCall 1-800-669-9065 (from US) or 314-416-1050 (outside the US) to order. FREE shipping to the contiguous US.

*If age-specific normative data for ages 7 and up is needed, consider purchasing the Dichotic Digits-Musiek version instead.

**Did you know Auditec sells a therapy designed for persons with specific ear deficits on dichotic listening tests called the Constraint-Induced Auditory Therapy (CIAT)?

Pitch (Frequency) Pattern Test

The Pitch Pattern Test – Musiek version (also known as Frequency Pattern Test) is an auditory processing disorder test for ages 8 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. It was recorded by Dr. Frank Musiek.  The Pitch (Frequency) Pattern – Musiek version is similar to the Pitch Pattern Sequence standard version in that groups of three tone bursts at either of two frequencies are presented monaurally.

Is the Musiek version or standard version better? Neither version is considered better. Both versions sell popularly and are widely used. Decisions are mainly based on which version the audiologist was originally trained in or by personal preference. Due to the similarities between the standard and Musiek versions, it is usually unnecessary to purchase both the Musiek and standard versions.

Dichotic Digits includes a) audio recording, and b) instructions and score form as printable pdf files. The two-page instructions include administration, scoring, and interpretation information. Normative data for ages 8 and up is included. 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.

Duration Pattern Sequence – Musiek Version

The Duration Pattern Sequence is an auditory processing disorder test. It is considered a temporal test using auditory pattern temporal ordering (APTO) and is sensitive to cortical lesions, interhemispheric transfer. The Duration Pattern Sequence – Musiek version is a test by Dr. Frank Musiek. It is similar to the Duration Pattern Sequence standard version.

Is the Musiek version or standard version better? Neither version is considered better. Both versions sell popularly and are widely used. Decisions are mainly based on which version the audiologist was originally trained in or by personal preference. Due to the similarities between the standard and Musiek versions, it is usually unnecessary to purchase both versions.

Musiek Duration Pattern Sequence includes a) audio recording, and b) instructions and score form as printable pdf files.  The two-page instructions consist of administration and interpretation information. 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. Available from Auditec, Inc.  Call 1-800-669-9065 (from US) or 314-416-1050 (outside the US) to order.
