The Meaningful Auditory Integration Scale (MAIS) has been developed to evaluate a child’s auditory skills in meaningful and real-world situation by Robbins et al. in 1991. MAIS was composed with 10 items for a structured interview assessing three main areas; 1) bonding to the device, 2) alerting to sound, and 3) the ability to derive meaning from auditory phenomena. Since MAIS has been a world wide evaluation tool of the auditory behavior to the cochlear implanted children for its validity and high reliability, more than 20 countries use this instrument with their own interpreted versions. For this reason, the study meeting was organized in 2006 to produce a verified interpretation of MAIS and IT-MAIS in Korean. In 2014, 12 aural and speech rehabilitation professionals reconstituted after initial organizations and kept the author’s agreement for the interpretation. After initial interpretation of the two bilingual (Korean and English) members, all the members gathered for appropriate interpretation with the following six principles. 1) Each item should be interpreted faithfully. 2) Instructions for administering the MAIS should be translated liberally. 3) Certain words should follow the same rules such as ending of the sentence and correct spelling. 4) Summary of the whole test result would be presented in front. 5) The main area of each item would be presented upper-lefthand of each item. 6) Completed Korean MAIS, letter of agreement, evaluation recording form would be shared by the members. Reverse interpretation and fine elaborating procedure was underwent for verifying completed interpretation of MAIS. Conclusively, a verified Korean MAIS was presented. We hope that this interpreted MAIS provoke decent investigations about auditory behavior of the hearing impaired children in Korea and let the data be analyzed and compared internationally in the future and that their ability for listening and speaking improve eventually with advanced aural and speech rehabilitation. Suggestions from colleagues who are interested in MAIS and its interpretation and investigation are welcome for fine tuning and discussion.
