Description: The Test of Everyday Attention for Children, Second Edition (TEA-Ch2) is a new edition of the test for attention, which measures separable aspects of attention using a combination of both paper-based and computerized tests.  TEA-Ch2 is particularly useful for use with children who have known or suspected problems with attention; to tell apart different patterns of strengths and weaknesses in cognition; inform interventions and monitor outcomes. Designed for use by clinical, educational and child psychologists. This assessment can also be used by academic researchers and other health/care professionals who have appropriate training in test administration and interpretation.

TEA-Ch 2 test administration is conducted using both paper-based record form (referred to as the comic) and computerized subtests (refer to Chapters 4 & 5). The scoring system automatically generates scaled and indexed scores based on general population norms, stratified by age and sex.  Portions of the  TEA-Ch2 can be Hand-scored and some parts scored using TEA-Ch2 Scoring software.

The TEA-Ch2 has all new subtests, some cover the same tasks and functions as subtests in the original TEA-Ch, while others address new and different abilities.

  • Shorter, simpler age-appropriate versions for younger children: (TEA-Ch2J “Junior” ages 5:0 – 7:11)
    Longer version for the older children: (TEA-Ch 2A “Adolescent” ages 8:0 – 15:11)
  • General attention index and selective and sustained attention indices capturing core abilities
  • Sustained Attention to Response task (SART): a measure of sustained attention, where children respond with a key press to shapes, but withhold their response when presented with a triangle
  • Reds & Blues, Bags & Shoes (RBBS): a measure of switching attention in the TEA-Ch2 A (Adolescent), that requires children to switch between two rules while responding to simple images; these subtests, were previously not available to clinicians in accessible formats.
