Designed for children with hearing loss aged three years and older, this 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.
