The Listening Inventory (TLI) is an informal behavioral observation completed by parents and/or teachers for students between the ages of 3 to 17. The Listening Inventory is a first step to quantify behaviors to see if a child might need evaluation for auditory disorders and it can provide a starting point for discussions with the speech-language professional prior to formal evaluation of a child. Six areas are assessed and index scores are derived for each. The areas are:
auditory processes. TLI is a sensitive measure to identify those at risk for Auditory Processing Disorders (APD).
TLI is broadly tuned to identify a wide variety of APD characteristics.
TLI contains questions that help to identify four conditions that often overlap with APD.
TLI is a tool that is administered individually (Ages 3 through 17) and requires about 15 minutes to complete and score. Kit includes Manual, 25 Inventory forms, 25 Profile forms
