The Reliability of Speech Audiometry with Institutionalized Retarded Children This study investigated the reliability of speech-reception-threshold (SRT) audiometry with 12 moderately and 12 severely retarded children randomly selected from an institutionalized population. All 24 subjects showed ±6 dB or better test-retest SRT agreement for right ear, left ear, and sound field presentations. ... Research Article
