Abstract

This project translates research findings from the Philadelphia (picture) Naming Test into a clinical tool for diagnosis and measurement of change. The tool is a pair of 5-minute naming tests, each involving a different, representative set of 30 PNT targets. In an evaluation carried out with a well-distributed sample of 25 individuals with chronic aphasia, accuracy scores on the short forms, PNT30-A and –B, were highly correlated with the full PNT and with each other. By utilizing the extensive research database from the PNT, score equivalents and norms are calculated that can be applied in the clinical setting.
