Visual reinforcement audiometry (VRA), visual reinforcement operant conditioning audiometry (VROCA), and play audiometry were compared in terms of conditionability and number of responses obtained prior to habituation on normal 2-year-old (24–27 months) children. Results indicated that a higher percentage of children could be conditioned to VRA than to either VROCA or play audiometry. Results also indicated that for children who could be conditioned, the play audiometry group showed more responses prior to habituation than were obtained from the other two groups.
