Abstract

A short form Boston Naming Test (Kaplan, Goodglass, & Weintraub, 1983) has been created using Rasch analysis and responses from neurologically-healthy individuals and individuals with dementia (Graves, Bezeau, Fogarty, & Blair, 2004). Given the differences in the basis of anomia for dementia and aphasia, it cannot be assumed that this form is suitable for both populations. Thus, this study addresses 2 aims: 1) to determine if the Graves et al., (2004) short form is valid in the aphasia population and 2) based on the outcome, to create a 15-item short form with Rasch analysis using data from individuals with aphasia.
