Auditory Continuous Performance Test (ACPT)

The Auditory Continuous Performance Test (ACPT) was developed to screen for auditory attention deficits. It can aid in the diagnosis of ADD or ADHD in children 6 through 11. The child listens to a list of words and raises a thumb every time he or she hears the target word. Total test time is approximately 15 minutes. Watch the video! (See below.)

The ACPT includes a) audio recording, b) manual and score forms as printable pdf files. The 46-page manual is comprised of sections on administration and scoring, interpretation, and test development. It is available from Auditec, Inc.  Call 1-800-669-9065 (from US) or 314-416-1050 (outside the US) to order. FREE shipping on orders within the contiguous US.

Temporal Speech Stenger

Recall that the Stenger test is employed to investigate persons who have exhibited questionable unilateral hearing losses. The Temporal Speech Stenger was developed to enhance the effectiveness of a variation of the Stenger test which uses spondee words instead of pure tones as the stimuli. Spondee words were recorded on both tracks.

The first set of spondees was recorded simultaneously (diotic) while the second was recorded so that the spondees on one track lagged the other track by 2.25 milliseconds (dichotic). The effect is to maintain the intracranial sound image on the lead ear side as the interaural intensities are varied. As a consequence the patient does not perceive the shifting image that normally occurs as interaural intensities approach equality. In other words, the intensity/time of arrival (a special case of phase) trade-off is upset by delaying the onset of the spondee opposite from the claimed deafened ear. Thus a positive result is NO response.

The Temporal Speech Stenger Test includes a) audio recording, and b) instructions with word list. The one-page instructions include information on administration only. Normative data is not provided with this product. Available from Auditec, Inc.  Call 1-800-669-9065 (from US) or 314-416-1050 (outside the US) to order.

T-Trip

The Tennessee Test of Rhythm & Intonation Patterns (T-Trip) was developed to reliably investigate children and adults who exhibit poor rhythm and intonation patterns. Basically, the test looks at the ability to perceive different rhythm and intonation patterns. The recording contains stress, tempo and intonation items. Music symbols are employed to identify the patterns. Watch the video! See below.

The T-Trip includes a) audio recording, b) instructions and score form as printable pdf files. The extensive instructions include information on administration, scoring, and interpretation. Normative data is provided, but it is not age-specific since 100% is expected by children and adults first grade and higher. Available from Auditec, Inc.  Call 1-800-669-9065 (from US) or 314-416-1050 (outside the US) to order.
