Please see my Community Profile! about Asperger's Syndrome!
Although playing a tone makes a lot more sense than talking. If he is interested in something a lot of time he will just ignore someone talking. He would probably look at a tone cause its something unfamiliar.

My audiologist plays "pure sounds" from the left or right, if the child looks around they have a little dancing dog to reward them.
|My ds was tested this way by an audiologist at the ENT office, and he "passed." It didn't sit right with me. I felt they gave him credit for things in the sound booth that they shouldn't have, even though they felt confident about the results and claimed they were able to pick up even subtle stuff. This kind of test, which is also referred to as a "voluntary test" because the child's voluntary responses to sounds are being tested, is an indicator but I don't feel it is particularly diagnostic. I did not feel he was responding normally, despite what the audiologist was saying.|
