Apport des tests adaptatifs pour évaluer les surdités en maternelle et chez les enfants sourds

Abstract : Contribution of adaptive tests to the evaluation of deafness in preschool children and deaf children The aim of this study is to determine the impact of adaptive tests as a measure of auditory thresholds. To achieve this, sixty-five unselected children above the age of 4 were submitted to the Auditory Adaptive Speech Test (AAST) in noise, in silence and in high frequencies. Furthermore, we collected data from deaf children with bilateral and unilateral implantation and with hearing aids. Results show that when treated early, deaf children perform closer to normal-hearing children, that adaptive tests can lead to early speech rehabilitation, that AAST checks whether the settings of hearing aids or cochlear implants are right. It could also be used as a screening tool for preschool children. In such a way, adaptive tests could be broadened and integrated into early hearing screening and be useful for the monitoring of deaf children.
