The APAT is a nationally standardized, norm-referenced auditory processing battery for use with children ages 5-0 through 12-11. It may be used for the following purposes: the identification of children who are at risk or who may be experiencing Auditory Processing Disorder (APD); to determine a child's specific strengths and weaknesses among a number of auditory processing skills; document a child's improvement in auditory processing skill abilities as a result of therapeutic interventions. The APAT was developed using a model based on a hierarchy of auditory processing skills that are basic to listening and processing spoken language. These skills range from sensation to memory to cohesion.

The APAT is comprised of 10 subtests that quantify a child's performance in various areas of auditory processing:
•Phonemic Awareness
•Word Sequences
•Semantic Relationships
•Sentence Memory
•Cued Recall
•Content Memory
•Complex Sentences
•Sentence Absurdities
•Following Directions
•Passage Comprehension

The APAT provides composite index scores as well as individual subtest scores: Global Index reflecting overall auditory processing efficiency, Linguistic Processing Index, and Auditory Memory Index. Optional analyses allow further examination of Linguistic Processing tasks (yielding indices for discrimination, sequencing, and cohesion) and Memory tasks (yielding indices for immediate recall, delayed recall, sequential recall, and cued recall).
The battery is designed primarily to be used by speech-language pathologists but may also be used by other professionals such as learning disabilities specialists, psychologists, and resource specialists.
