Abstract

While there have been many advances over the past 40 years, barriers to effective measurement of functional communication skills in adults with aphasia remain. First, the ability range targeted by current assessments frequently falls below the ability level of many community-dwelling stroke survivors (Frattali, 1992). Second, the burden of assessment associated with most functional communication assessments is high, limiting their use in the current healthcare environment (Worrall, 2001).
