Abstract

Concurrent task performances may reveal potentially important aspects of cognitive efficiency that are otherwise not tested. We describe the development of a functional task using dual-task methodology – a catalog-ordering task. The task’s lexical and syntactic characteristics are described. Its validity and feasibility were demonstrated based on the performances of 10 adults with aphasia and seven adults without aphasia. An additional 15 adults without aphasia performed the task at two test times separated by six to eight weeks and demonstrated high test-retest reliability. Scoring reliability was also high. The catalog-ordering task holds promise as an outcome tool for aphasia.
