This iPad version of the IT-MAIS will help professionals collect and save parental reports concerning their child’s response to sound through interview format. The test allows creation of up to 30 different child accounts and for repeated interviews over the child’s first two years of listening.
Professionals using the app can tap and type for each of the ten probes and view the overall score on the score sheet. They can revisit the sheet at any time or share by email the information collected.
The Infant-Toddler Meaningful Auditory Integration Scale (IT-MAIS) (Zimmerman-Phillips 2000) is a modification of the Meaningful Auditory Integration Scale (MAIS) (Robbins et al. 1991). It is a structured interview schedule designed to assess the child’s spontaneous responses to sound in their everyday environment. The assessment is based upon information provided by the child’s parent(s) in response to 10 probes. These 10 probes assess three main areas: 1) vocalization behavior, 2) alerting to sounds; and 3) deriving meaning from sound. Specific scoring criteria have been developed for each of the 10 probes.
