Multiple Auditory Processing Assessment (MAPA–2)

Identify children who have auditory processing disorders

Publisher: ATP

  • Individual Administration
  • Ages 7 through 14
  • Norm–Referenced
  • Testing Time: 30–45 Minutes

Description
The MAPA can be administered by speech-language pathologists as well as audiologists. It may be used as a screener to be followed by other behavioral or physiological tests or it may be used for a preliminary diagnosis in the auditory area. The test is administered via CD and can be used in a clinical setting or a sound booth.

The MAPA includes eight different subtests in the three skill areas (monaural, temporal, and binaural) that the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) recommends for auditory processing assessment.

Monaural: Evaluate an individual’s ability to use low redundancy information. Competing signals or degraded signals are often presented, requiring the listener to fill in the blanks.

  1. Monaural-Selective Attention Test: Assesses an individual’s ability to recognize monosyllabic words with and without competing background noise of high-interest speech
  2. Speech in Noise for Children: Assesses an individual’s ability to recognize monosyllabic word pairs presented with competing pink noise at progressively decreasing signal-to-noise ratios

    Temporal: Evaluate an individual’s ability to use acoustic information over time.

  3. Tap Test: Assesses an individual’s ability to recognize and label an auditory pattern
  4. Pitch Pattern Test: Assesses an individual’s ability to synthesize a word given the individual phonemes

    Binaural: Evaluate an individual’s ability to use unique information presented simultaneously to each ear.

  5. Dichotic Digits: Assesses an individual’s ability to recognize digit sequences when digit pairs are presented simultaneously to each ear
  6. Competing Sentences: Assesses an individual’s ability to recognize more complex language sequences presented simultaneously to each ear

    Supplemental Subtests: Additional tests that can be used to assess an individual’s skill in the temporal area.

  7. Duration Pattern Test: Assesses an individual’s ability to use cues including rate and pattern and to label what is heard
  8. Gap Detection Test: Assesses an individual’s temporal resolution abilities using intervals of varying length between stimuli

PLEASE NOTE: The MAPA test is currently in production with an anticipated publication date in Spring 2018. Please check back with this page for updates.
