To examine the relationship of the Flowers-Costello Tests of Central Auditory Abilities (TCAA) and the Illinois Test of Psycho-linguistic Abilities (ITPA), 20 ethnic minority children were administered both tests. Cor- relation data revealed significant relationships between the TCAA and the ITPA auditory sub tests. Further, the two sub tests of the TCAA indicated different sensitivity to abilities used on the ITPA, suggesting that separate sub test norms in addition to total raw score norms would enhance the future diagnostic utility of the TCAA.
