Preliminary Results of the Adaptation of Developmental Test of Auditory Perception (DTAP) to Turkish with Normal Hearing Children and Adolescents
Objective: Auditory perception, which is the recognition and interpretation of auditory stimulus, forms the basis of verbal communication skills.Evaluating auditory perception in children is very important. Developmental Test of Auditory Perception (DTAP) is a battery that measures differ-ent aspects of auditory perception. This study aimed to present the Turkish adaptation of the DTAP battery.Material and Methods: A total of 80 individuals (40 girls, 40 boys), aged between 8 and 18 years with normal hearing, were recruited in this study.The DTAP consists of 5 subtests, including environmental sounds, word discrimination, phonemes in isolation, tonal pattern, and rhyming sounds.All of these subtests were adapted to Turkish.Results: The participants were found to have a greater difficulty in tonal pattern and rhyming sounds subtests. Negative correlation was foundbetween age and the subtests of tonal pattern and rhyming sounds (P < .05). According to these results, as the age of the participants increases,the probability of making mistakes in these subtests decreases. However, a positive correlation was found between tonal pattern and rhymingsounds subtests, with both the number of incorrect items in tonal pattern and rhyming sound subtests increased.Conclusion: It is concluded that auditory perception of tonal patterns and rhyming sounds is challenging for children in the young age group. TheDTAP is an adaptable tool for the Turkish population. Further studies are needed with greater populations of Turkish children.
