The Listening Inventory is an informal behavioral observation completed by parents and/or teachers. 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:

  • linguistic organization
  • decoding/language mechanics
  • attention/organization
  • sensory/motor
  • social/behavioral
  • auditory processes

    Statements in The Listening Inventory Form are rated on a 0 to 5 point scale. Index scores are compared to criterion-based cut-off scores to determine clinical significance.

    The Listening Inventory Form is easy to use, designed to automatically direct scores to the appropriate Index column for quick scoring. The manual contains background information as well as a guide for interpretation and use of the observations that were made. Profile forms are provided to assist with score interpretation using convenient graphs.
