To identify the natural tendencies of hits and calculate the cutoff for a test group of central auditory processes (CAP): binaural fusion, filtered words, dichotic digits, frequency patterns and duration patterns and ambient sounds in normal 5-, 7-, 9- and 11-year-old children. We studied 369 children (738 ears) who attend public schools in Puebla City, administering 6 CAP tests (two binaural and four monaural); we used an audiometer at 50dB SL re-threshold at 1 kHz, from a CD recorded at the CCECADET-UNAM-INR (Centre for Applied Science and Technological Development at the National Autonomous University of Mexico and the National Institute for Rehabilitation). We determined the cutoff points for the six tests. This information represents an advance in the normative standards in the field of psychoacoustic tests for CAP in Spanish and in the socio-educational context prevalent in Mexico. It is important to evaluate these results against CAP disorders. Copyright © 2011 Elsevier España, S.L. All rights reserved.
