  • Description
  • Details

This volume presents dozens of tests for use in the diagnosis of aphasia.

For the past twenty years, Spreen and Risser have episodically reviewed the state of aphasia assessment in contemporary clinical practice. This book represents their most thorough effort. Taking a flexible assessment approach, the authors present dozens of tests for traditional use in the diagnosis of aphasia and in functional communication, childhood language development, bilingual testing, pragmatic aspects of language in everyday life, and communication problems in individuals with head injury or with lesions of the right hemisphere. The book is a thorough and practical resource for speech and language pathologists, neuropsychologists, and their students and trainees.
