NOTE: A Guidebook for the Auditory Perception Test for the Hearing Impaired: From Assessment to Intervention comes with the complete Auditory Perception Test for the Hearing Impaired, Third Edition, (APT-HI) kit (ISBN: 1597565903). Here you can purchase additional copies of just the Guidebook.

A Guidebook for the Auditory Perception Test for the Hearing Impaired is designed to be used with children who have undergone assessment with the Auditory Perception Test for the Hearing Impaired,Third Edition (APT-HI), a well-established test used to assess the auditory development and auditory processing of children with hearing loss. While the APT-HI test manual contains useful information, many professionals speech-language pathologists, pediatric audiologists, and teachers of the deaf may not possess the background, knowledge, and skills to interpret the results provided by the APT-HI and then develop a careful intervention plan for the child. This Guidebook clearly describes step-by-step processes for developing specific goals in audition, speech, and language for children who have completed the assessment. Numerous case studies are used to illustrate this process at various ages and levels of auditory functioning and speech/language development.

Review:

From the Foreword
We are witness to tremendous development and a unique time in the lives of families who have a child who is deaf or hard of hearing. Due to this changing landscape of deafness, the opportunities and demonstrated outcomes for these children have never been more impressive. With over 95% of babies being screened in the United States for hearing difference at birth, the early detection and identification of hearing loss in the first weeks and months of life, followed by the provision of earmolds and advanced hearing aids the sky is the limit for our children. And, as necessary, the option of unilateral or bilateral cochlear implants and use of other hearing assistive technology these infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and beyond are destined for greatness. And with this early auditory foundation, clinically effective early intervention from practitioners who can guide and coach parents and other family members how to best teach their child greatness can truly be achieved.
With all of the above and the fact that approximately 80% of children with hearing differences are being placed in the educational mainstream, the time is ripe for the introduction of the third edition of the Auditory Perception Test for the Hearing Impaired (APT/HI). And the launch of this timely and focused guidebook, A Guidebook for the Auditory Perception Test for the Hearing Impaired: From Assessment to Intervention, comes at just the right time for professionals and parents- readers - to benefit from the many riches of this work.
Editor Susan G. Allen has assembled a roster of distinguished clinicians and other educators, who have tackled a variety of topics to support clinicians using the APT/HI (3rd ed.). Students and practitioners in the fields of speech-language pathology, audiology, and education of the deaf/hearing impaired often are in need of additional coaching in the multitude of issues related to this unique group of youngsters and students. The Guidebook valiantly serves that role. Using the commonly cited model of Erber s auditory hierarchy the varied levels of auditory functioning are robustly explained and developed, such that the most clinically effective services can be provided.
In our evolution of more and more families electing a listening and spoken language outcome for their child with hearing impairment, we are enriched by this guidebook and the authors hopes and expectations, that more and more children who are deaf or hard of hearing, can indeed learn to listen, and in so doing, develop intelligible speech; impressive language in the areas of form, content, and use; and notably, become casual and typical listeners. We have come so far and this resource is a significant contribution so that we all might move even more forward. -- --Donald M. Goldberg, Ph.D., CCC-SLP/A, FAAA, LSLS Cert. AVT
