Description

The Auditory Perception Test for the Hearing Impaired, Third Edition (APT-HI) continues to serve as an effective resource for accurately determining the discrete auditory perception abilities of children (three years of age and older) through profiling 8 major skill areas with several subsets. By using a limited set of words within the test and the recommended trial sets, the user can determine if a student understands the linguistic material included in the test item set, which demonstrates that auditory processing - rather than linguistic functioning - is being tested. Practical, easy to use, and designed for use with any number of curricula, APT-HI, Third Edition identifies specific auditory perception and processing deficits across the continuum of listening, from awareness to open-set comprehension. It allows for specific analysis of an individual's ability to decode phonemes in isolation as well as in the context of words and sentences, and examines suprasegmental and linguistic processing skills. A performance profile (rather than a score) provides a display of mastered, emerging, and missing skills.This new and updated edition of APT-HI guides the professional through the APT-HI assessment process, but now also offers guidance on how intervention can be structured in a way that will maximize listening and spoken language development in children with hearing loss. ----------------------------------------------------------- The complete and revised APT-HI, Third Edition kit includes: *APT-HI Test Manual (spiral-bound) with picture plates and instructions for performing each task. *Assessment to Intervention Guidebook (soft cover) designed to be used with children who have undergone assessment with the APT-HI. While the test manual contains useful information, many professionals may not possess the background, knowledge, and skills to interpret the results provided by the APT-HI and then develop a careful intervention plan for the child. This Guidebook clearly describes step-by-step processes for developing specific goals in audition, speech, and language for children who have completed the assessment. Numerous case studies are used to illustrate this process at various ages and levels of auditory functioning and speech/language development.* Access to additional online materials: **APT-HI Instruction Manual (printable) **Record/profiling forms (printable) **Early listening basic skills assessment guide **Additional activities guide **PowerPoint slides with assessment and intervention demonstrations **Videos featuring children being evaluated with APT-HI and demonstrations of intervention techniques

About Author

Susan G. Allen is co-author of the original APT/HI and the founder and director of the Clarke Jacksonville Auditory/Oral Center, one of five campuses of the CLARKE School for Deaf / Center for Oral Education. A speech-language pathologist and teacher of the deaf for over 40 years, Allen earned an undergraduate degree in education from the University of Michigan, a masters degree in education of the deaf from Smith College and a masters degree in special education with an emphasis on speech pathology from the University of North Florida. She has taught at universities, mentored staff and interns and presented over 80 papers, workshops and courses on teaching children with hearing loss and on the development of speech perception and speech production. At Clarke Jacksonville, Allen strives to provide children who are deaf or hard of hearing with the English language skills they need to succeed with their hearing peers in mainstream schools. She developed the APT/HI-R to assist interventionists in assessing and managing learning-to-listen skills for improving speech intelligibility and oral language.
