Intended to be used as part of a battery, the TAPS-3 measures what a child or adolescent does with what he or she hears. Results can help you diagnose auditory processing difficulties, imperceptions of auditory modality, language problems, and/or learning disabilities in both children and teens.

  • Subtests include Word Discrimination, Phonological Segmentation, Phonological Blending, Numbers Forward, Numbers Reversed, Word Memory, Sentence Memory, Auditory Comprehension, and Auditory Reasoning.
  • Subtest order reflects a developmental progression of tasks, ranging from easiest to most difficult. The use of partial credit in some subtests more accurately reflects the child’s auditory abilities.
  • An optional Auditory Figure-Ground task, presented on audio CD, flags attention problems and gives feedback about how the child’s auditory processing system works in real-world situations.
  • In addition to one overall score, individual subtest scores are combined to derive three cluster scores: Basic Auditory Skills, Auditory Memory, and Auditory Cohesion.
  • Norms are nationally stratified to closely match U.S. Census demographics and are based on data from more than 2,000 students.
