Test Materials

 

We have developed several auditory processing test procedures for which the normative (validity) data has been determined by our own research.

These tests include:

  • Dichotic Digits (1983)

  • Frequency (Pitch) Patterns (1987) (from M. Pinheiro, 1977)

  • Duration Patterns (1990)

  • Gaps In Noise (GIN) (2005)

 

The articles below are the initial publications reflecting the validity research for these tests.
