Start date: October 2020
End Date: November 2020


Diagnostic auditory evaluation includes assessment of the hearing threshold for speech signals through the Speech Recognition Threshold (SRT) test. The test stimuli are English spondees. The standard SRT test is not always valid for clients who are not native speakers of English, have limited English proficiency, have a language delay or disorder, or are multilingual speakers. An alternate test, the Digit-SRT was developed by the principal investigator and is currently being evaluated in pediatric populations.
