This article reports results of a standardization study of the English language version of the Aachen aphasia test (EAAT). The EAAT was administered to 135 speakers with and 93 without aphasia. Aphasic speakers were divided into four groups (n =30) representing EAAT standard syndrome groups (global, amnestic, Broca's and Wernicke's aphasia), and 15 speakers who could not be classified into the standard groups. Without aphasia were 24 nonhospitalized and 41 hospitalized speakers with no history… Expand
Cross linguistic aphasia testing: The Portuguese version of the Aachen Aphasia Test (AAT)
TLDR
The PAAT showed robust psychometrical properties, comparable to the original German and to adaptations to other languages, and constitutes a useful tool for cross-linguistic and multicenter studies. Expand
Modification and standardisation of Arabic version of the Comprehensive Aphasia Test
Background: The Comprehensive Aphasia Test (CAT) is a new standardised test designed to assess a wide range of language functions in participants with acquired aphasia. In its present state, the CATExpand
Developing an Arabic Screening Test for Adult-Onset Chronic Aphasia
TLDR
The Mansoura Arabic Screening Aphasia Test is a valid and a reliable brief assessment tool that can be completed on the first clinic appointment that detects the type and severity of Arabic-speaking aphasic patients. Expand
A tutorial on aphasia test development in any language: Key substantive and psychometric considerations
TLDR
The current review addresses this lack of assessment tools by providing conceptual and statistical guidance for the development of aphasia assessment tools and establishment of their psychometric properties by addressing the pitfalls of translating an existing test into a new language versus creating a new test. Expand
Developing a clinician-friendly aphasia test.
TLDR
The KAT remains in its early stages of development, but it does appear to meet the requirements for a "clinician-friendly" aphasia test and, as such, offers a rapid, convenient means of obtaining an objective score to determine changes in language functioning during the early postonset period. Expand
Validity and features of spontaneous speech in acute aphasia as evaluated with the Brief Aphasia Evaluation: is fluent aphasia more severe than nonfluent aphasia?
TLDR
Performance Rank was a relevant indicator of aphasia by its consistency with valid and comprehensive dimensions of acute language impairments and the effect of Type of Disorder on the three factors was analyzed. Expand
Narrative review of the psychometric properties of language tests used in anomia treatment for primary progressive aphasia (PPA)
ABSTRACT Background: Primary progressive aphasia (PPA) is a neurodegenerative dementia in which language decline is the first and most prominent symptom. Among several interventions for PPA, languageExpand
Diagnosing residual aphasia using spontaneous speech analysis
Background: It is well known that about 20% of patients with anomic aphasia still show residual aphasic symptoms 1 year post onset. As we do not have any tests to reliably diagnose residual aphasiaExpand
Afazi Dil Değerlendirme Testi’nin Geçerlik, Güvenirlik ve Standardizasyon Çalışması
Objective: Aphasia assessment is the first step towards a well-founded language therapy. Language tests need to consider cultural as well as typological linguistic aspects of a given language. ThisExpand
Cross-linguistic adaptations of The Comprehensive Aphasia Test: Challenges and solutions
TLDR
Challenges and solutions related to the use of imageability, frequency, word length, spelling-to-sound regularity and sentence length and complexity as underlying properties in the selection of the testing material are proposed. Expand

The Thai version of Aachen aphasia test (THAI-AAT).
TLDR
The result revealed that the THAI-AAT is linguistically parallel in test design and fulfills the same psychometric properties as the original and obtains the goals: to differential diagnosis of aphasia distinguishing it from non-aphasic disturbance and to identify the type of aahsic syndrome. Expand
The Thai version of the German Aachen Aphasia Test (AAT): description of the test and performance in normal subjects.
TLDR
The results revealed that the normal subjects' performances on the test were independent of age, sex and education level, and therefore the Thai version of AAT is applicable to the differential diagnosis of the communicative abilities of Thai aphasic patients. Expand

Abstract The Western Aphasia Battery (WAB) and the Boston Diagnostic Aphasia Examination (BDAE) are designed to classify the aphasias. Previous reports indicate that patients classified asExpand

TLDR
Comparison of both profiles revealed an overall increase in performance for each subtest as well as changes in level of performance relations between pairs of subtests, and a remarkably better preserved reading and writing ability could be found for both test administrations. Expand
Outcome of intensive language treatment in aphasia.
TLDR
About two thirds of the patients showed significant improvement in AAT performance according to psychometric single case analysis procedures, and a similar rate of improvement was found for individuals with chronic aphasia beyond the stage of spontaneous recovery. Expand
Validity of multiple-sentence reading comprehension tests for aphasic adults.
TLDR
Results suggest that published tests for assessing aphasic persons' comprehension of multiple-sentence passages do not provide valid estimates of such persons' ability to comprehend information from printed texts. Expand

TLDR
It is argued here that the PICA does none of these things and that the multidimensional scoring system as applied in the Pica is invalid. Expand
Piracetam as an adjuvant to language therapy for aphasia: a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled pilot study.
TLDR
Piracetam appears to have a positive adjuvant effect on the recovery of aphasia in patients receiving intensive language therapy in a double-blind, placebo-controlled parallel group study. Expand

TLDR
The need for test manuals to contain a wide range of psychometric information is discussed and, in particular, the role of subject description in test standardization is emphasized. Expand
