Determine if your student has difficulty with auditory processing, difficulty with language processing, or a combination of the two. The DSTP is the only test of its kind to differentiate among the various levels of auditory and language processing and identifies areas for referral or further evaluation. The DSTP is a screening instrument to assist professionals in determining if additional diagnostic assessment is warranted and the specific areas of focus for further testing.
The subtest areas of the DSTP represent the neurological continuum of processing acoustic stimuli. Critical skills are evaluated in three major levels: acoustic, acoustic-linguistic, and linguistic. Test vocabulary was carefully chosen to be within the linguistic capabilities of the target population.
Level One â€“ Acoustic Subtests
Level Two â€“ Acoustic-Linguistic Subtests
Level Three â€“ Linguistic Subtests
COMPLETE TEST INCLUDES: Examiner's Manual, 20 Test Forms, 2 Headphones, Y-Cord Adapter, Audio CD-ROM, 12 Letter Tiles, and 8 Picture Cards, all in a Sturdy Storage Box. (©2006)
