Non-Fused and O/L Indicators for Phonemic Synthesis Test

Jack Katz, PhD, CCC-A/SLP

February 1, 2010


Question

Can you review the Non-fused and O/L indicators for the Phonemic Synthesis test?

Answer

Non-fused indicator is either saying the word in two or more parts (da-res for "dress" or m-i-l-k for "milk") or saying the sounds rather individually but pushing them together (e.g., mmiillk). O for L is a response such as 'chiod' for 'child' or 'code' for 'cold'.

This Ask the Expert was based on the recorded course series entitled "The Staggered Spondaic Word (SSW) Test - Virtual Conference" that was presented live on AudiologyOnline in Summer 2009. We invite you to view the recorded courses from this series that can be found in the AudiologyOnline library: Scoring Staggered Spondaic Word (SSW) Items - Plugging in the Best Information (course #14141);Scoring the Staggered Spondaic Word (SSW) Test: Using All the Elements (course #14166);and Auditory Processing Disorder (APD): Making a Diagnosis and Checking it Twice (course #14212).

Jack Katz has been involved in the study of central auditory disorders for over five decades. He has developed effective tests and therapy procedures to evaluate and remediate this prevalent problem. He has editied several books on this topic and has written many articles and chapters and has presented on this topic nationally and internationally. He has just completed a book focusing on therapy for APD that will be distributed by Educational Audiology Association. Dr. Katz has spent 50 years developing the SSW test as a measure of central auditory function.
