Re: Auditory Attention Test

Dear List
Is there an auditory equivalent of the Trail Making neuropsychological test for visual attention and task switching? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trail-making_test)

The ones I have been able to find appear to target children and test for either ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) or CAPD (central auditory processing disorder).

One candidate is the Brief Test of Attention (http://www4.parinc.com/Products/Product.aspx?ProductID=BTA). Does anyone have experience with this?

I am looking for a 5-15 minute test of auditory attention on older adults.

Thanks in advance for your help.
