Comprehensive Aphasia Test
|This article needs additional citations for verification. (March 2008)|
The Comprehensive Aphasia Test (CAT) was created by Kate Swinburn, Gillian Porter and David Howard. The CAT is a new test for people who have acquired aphasia, the impairment of language ability. The comprehensive assessment can be completed over one or two sessions. The test contains a cognitive screening, a language battery and a disability questionnaire.
Parts of the test
The cognitive section assesses people’s abilities across a wide range of tasks that can impact rehabilitation.
The disability questionnaire explores the practical, psychological, and social impact of impairment from the perspective of the person living with aphasia. The disability questionnaire is optional.
