Designed for children with hearing loss aged three years and older, this criterion-based test enables the accurate determination of children's discrete auditory perception abilities by profiling in sixteen different skill areas. By using a limited set of words within the test and by using the recommended trial sets, the user can predetermine if a student knows the linguistic material included in the test item set, which in turn shows that auditory processing is being tested instead of linguistic functioning. Practical, easy to use, and designed for use with any number of curricula, the test identifies specific auditory perception and processing deficits across the continuum of listening, from awareness to open-set comprehension. It allows for specific analysis of the individual's ability to decode phonemes in isolation and in the context of words and sentences. Suprasegmental and linguistic processing skills are also examined. A performance profile (rather than a score) provides a display of mastered, emerging, and missing skills. Additional testing materials and activities for intervention are also included.
