Overview

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 the following printed materials:

  • APT/HI Test Manual (spiral-bound) with picture plates and instructions for performing each task.
  • A Guidebook for the Auditory Perception Test for the Hearing Impaired (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.

A study published in ASHA's SIG 9 Perspectives on Hearing and Hearing Disorders in Childhood revealed high test-retest, intra-rater, and inter-rater reliability. (The Auditory Perception Test for the Hearing Impaired-Rvised: Test-Retest Reliability, Intra-rater Reliablity, and Inter-rater Reliablity by Cordingley, Munoz, and Houston, December 2013, Vol. 23, 43-51, see article here.)

Review

  • Joyce Sewell-Rutter, Deaf & Education International, Vol 18, Issue 6 (2016):
    "The real value of this publication is the holistic approach it presents and the model it shares, providing a uniquely comprehensive assessment of auditory function. It would be especially useful for teachers of the deaf and speech and language therapists in training or those new to the professions or to speech perception testing. The guidebook brings together distinguished clinicians and educators who share a variety of topics to support use of the test but it speaks more widely to those encouraging listening or struggling with late starters. Allen translates Erber's hierarchy into a '3 Ps' mantra of 'perceive, process, produce'. Chapters with references support each phase of the mantra, touching on language development, even literacy. Tables illustrate expectations for normal early development and special case studies detail the test's use and intervention for less successful and older students. There are also useful chapters on children who are second language learners and training of personnel. The summary chapter 'Putting it All Together' recognises the role of the family and the importance of collaboration as well as offering practical suggestions for useful 'kit' and 'top tips'."
