The purpose of this study was to investigate the listening performance of 120 school-aged children with normal hearing and normal intelligence status through the Children’s Auditory Processing Performance Scale (CHAPPS) and to prove the effectiveness and to carry out a feasibility study on the use of CHAPPS in Korea. The data obtained indicated that the listening performance or average CHAPPS score of these children were in normal range. And the results also provide evidence that children have apparent difficulties in the noisy listening situation indicating even normal children also show some degree of difficulty of listening and processing of speech sound in noisy situation. And there were significant differences between the means for some of the subsections, especially in the noisy situation. Among 120 children, 13 (10.8%) were included in the At-Risk Range. As this result was 2 to 3 times of real CAPD incidence, we have to perform other behavioral tests at the same time to avoid over referral. There were no significant score differences between school grade and gender, indicating that CHAPPS questionnaire can be used as a reliable CAPD screening tool for all school-aged children regardless the grade or gender differences.
