SCAN-3 provides you with a valid and reliable test battery to help identify auditory processing disorders and describe their impact in daily life. Screen and diagnose auditory processing difficulties with one co-normed battery of tests.

Uses & Applications

  • Obtain information to help you differentiate an auditory processing disorder from auditory attention problems and auditory comprehension difficulties
  • Develop strategies to assist the child in managing auditory processing difficulties at school, at home and in the community

Content & Administration

The SCAN-3 test battery includes:

Screening Tests

  • NEW! Gap Detection—Indicates presence of a temporal processing problem which may influence the ability to comprehend running speech
  • Auditory Figure Ground (+8dB)—Tests ability to listen with background noise
  • Competing Words (Free Recall) — Dichotic listening task (poor performance may indicate lack of maturation or abnormality of the auditory nervous system)

Diagnostic Tests

  • Filtered Words—Indicates ability to process speech when the signal is distorted or compromised by a poor acoustic environment
  • Competing Words (Directed Ear)—Dichotic listening task that indicates a child’s auditory maturation or developmental level
  • Competing Sentences—Provides information about the maturation of the auditory nervous system

Supplementary Tests

  • Auditory Figure Ground (+0 dB and +12 dB)
  • NEW! Time Compressed Sentences

Ear advantage scores are provided for all tests except Gap Detection.

Psychometric Information

Updated norms and continuous normative scores are provided across SCAN-3 Child and Adolescent/Adult editions so that you can continue to monitor progress as the child ages out of the SCAN-3:C for children.
