Description proudly introduces the Developmental Test of Auditory Perception (DTAP)!

A carefully targeted measure of auditory perception un-confounded by reasoning! The DTAP is a battery of 5 item sets that measure different, but interrelated aspects of auditory perception. The comprehensive battery is designed to assess auditory perception without invoking higher order verbal reasoning or extensive memory capacity. Items are presented via a CD to standardize presentation of the language item sets and to include various nonlanguage sounds as well. The DTAP uses a simple response format easily understood and accommodated even by children in the primary grades. Using various language-related as well as non-language-related sounds, pairs of stimuli are presented and examinees indicate whether the pairs are the same or different. The five item sets-Phonemes in Isolation, Word Discrimination, Rhyming Sounds (all language-related), Tonal Patterns and Environmental Sounds (all nonlanguage-related)-are divided into two auditory scales: the Language Auditory Perception Index (LAPI) and the Nonlanguage Auditoy Perception Index (NAPI). The LAPI and the NAPI are combined to form the Composite Auditory Perception Index (CAPI), which is the best measure of auditory perception. Complete kit includes examiner’s manual, 25 examiner record forms, 25 student record forms, administration CD. Normed, ages 6-0 through 18-11, approx. 30 minutes.
