Abstract

The long-term goal of this research is to develop a valid and reliable impairment level measure of phonology in aphasia. The short-term goal, and focus of this abstract, is to present data collected from individuals with aphasia for 3 domains (or subtests) of this assessment: reading, repetition and perception. From the perspective of Item response theory (IRT), procedures will be presented on the development of the item bank. Results pertaining to the psychometric properties of the items when tested on individuals with aphasia show a reasonable fit to the Rasch model. Further research will validate and refine existing items.
