Children’s Auditory Performance Scale: Turkish Validity and Reliability

Year 2020, Volume 7, Issue 1, 32 - 40, 30.04.2020

Abstract

Objectives: Central auditory processing disorder (CAPD) is characterized by the difficulties in sound identification and discrimination although the hearing thresholds are in the normal limits. Children’s Auditory Performance Scale (CHAPS) is a questionnaire to use as a support in diagnosis. The aim of the present study is to examine the reliability and the validity of the Children’s Auditory Performance Scale
Materials and Methods: In total 150 children were included in the study and all children underwent hearing screening and children with normal hearing thresholds were included in the study. The children’s ages ranged from 7 to 15 years old (mean age = 102.85 ± 34.47 months). Cross-sectional survey was used in the study. Demographic information was obtained from participants and parents or teachers of the children who fulfilled the questionnaire.
Results: The internal consistency of the questionnaire was examined with Cronbach’s Alpha (α = 0.97). Factor analysis determined a six-factor structure which explained 77.75% of the variance in CHAPS scores.
Conclusion: The Turkish version of CHAPS can be considered as a reliable and valid instrument for clinical and research use.
