SERT

The Sound Effects Recognition Test (SERT) was developed for those instances where conventional word recognition measures are not appropriate, such as those with language limitations due to hearing impairment. It has been shown that certain children who are unable to discriminate even simple speech can perceive correctly environmental sounds to which they are exposed in their daily lives. Under these circumstances, the SERT can provide valuable information about the integrity of the auditory system. This is a closed-set, picture-pointing task. There are three sets of 10 sounds plus a practice sound. Watch the practice! See video below.

The SERT includes: a) picture book with manual, b) audio test recording, c) score forms as printable pdf files. The extensive manual contains administration, scoring, and interpretation information. Age-specific normative data is included for ages three to six. Available from Auditec, Inc. Call 1-800-669-9065 (from US) or 314-416-1050 (outside the US) to order.

PSI

The Pediatric Speech Intelligibility Test 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 includes both monosyllabic words and 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.

[Pediatric Speech Intelligibility Standard* Version; Item 183; Price $299.00 USD + S&H]

[Pediatric Speech Intelligibility Basic* Version; Item 184; Price $219.75 USD + S&H]

*What is the difference between the standard and basic version? Auditec recommends purchasing the PSI – Standard Version, which is the full test. It includes 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 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.)

*What is the difference between the WIPI First Edition and WIPI Second Edition?

  1. The original authors of the WIPI developed a second edition to clear up the ambiguity of the first edition. In some cases the picture contains a more modern depiction, such as the coke bottle is now 2-liter bottle. About one picture per page was changed.
  2. The word list was changed. Therefore, the WIPI recording must correspond to the correct version.
  3. The WIPI First Edition is available only on CD-Rom. Picture CD-Roms are designed to be displayed on a computer screen; however, customers may print the pictures and place them in a three-ring binder. WIPI pictures must be printed in color to obtain accurate test results. The WIPI Second Edition is available either or CD-Rom or as a printed book.
  4. If you are unsure whether you own the first or second edition, check the color of the cover. If you own one of the old printed WIPI First Edition books, the cover will be either blue or green. The WIPI Second Edition is a dark red/ maroon color.

Does Auditec offer a picture-pointing test for young children in other languages? No, consider employing a test with nonverbal stimuli such as the Sound Effects Recognition Test.

The WIPI is available from Auditec, Inc.
