Comprehensive aphasia test
The comprehensive aphasia test (CAT) is a new test for people who have acquired aphasia, the impairment of language ability. The test contains a cognitive screening, a language battery and a disability questionnaire. The comprehensive assessment can be completed over one or two sessions. The cognitive section assesses peoples abilities across a range of task that can affect rehabilitation. Forming the main body of the test, the language battery provides a profile of performance across all modalities of language production and comprehension. The disability questionnaire explores the practical, social impact and of psychological impairment from the perspective of the person living with aphasia.
