Results of central auditory processing tests in school-aged children
Karolina Dajos, Adam Piłka, Andrzej Senderski, Krzysztof Kochanek, Henryk Skarżyński

Introduction. Assessment of central auditory processing
disorders is difficult because of the lack of standardized clinical
procedures, tests and specialized equipment. Factors such as e.g.
age, cognitive and language abilities affect the results of central
auditory tests. This creates difficulties in ©APD diagnosis.
Aim. To examine the effect of age on results of selected central
auditory tests: adaptive speech-in-noise test (aSPN) and three
adaptive auditory discrimination tests (DLD, DLF, DLI) in schoolage
children and juveniles.
Material and methods. A battery of auditory tests was applied
to 119 subjects aged 7-17 with normal hearing. Tests
were performed using a computer program “APD” installed
on a nx7400 Compaq HP notebook provided with HDA 200
Sennheiser headphones.
Results. Age significantly affected the results of the tests Adolescents
performed significantly better on all four tests than
the younger children. Gender-related differences between test
results were not observed.
Conclusions. Age-specific standards must be used while assessing
central auditory processing disorders. It is important
to develop and standardize clinical procedures, equipment and
diagnostic tests for assessment of ©APD.
