Product Details

The Test of Everyday Attention (TEA) gives a broad based measure of three important clinical and theoretical aspects of attention:

  • Selective attention
  • Sustained attention
  • Attentional switching

It can be used to identify different patterns of attentional breakdown and has been validated successfully with patients with closed head injury, stroke, and Alzheimer's disease, and including those with low educational level.


The subtests use everyday skills to examine aspects of attention:

  • Map Search (selective attention)
  • Elevator Counting and Elevator Counting With Distraction (sustained attention)
  • Elevator Counting using Visual or Auditory Stimulus (attentional switching)
  • Telephone Directory (divided attention)
  • Lottery (sustained attention)

The test has three parallel versions and is sensitive enough to show normal age effects in the normal population.
