The first goal of this study was to evaluate the feasibility for children with cochlear implants to complete three APD tests: Pitch Pattern Sequencing (Musiek, 1994), Duration Pattern Sequencing (Musiek et al, 1990), and Bamford-Kowal-Bench Speech-In-Noise Test (Etymotic Research, 2005). The second goal was to explore adaptations needed to administer the tests. The third goal was to provide preliminary normative data. The tests were administered to early implanted, orally educated children, ages 7-17. The results indicated that this population is able to complete each test, with adaptations.
