Abstract

In this paper we present data from five measures of semantic processing that have been collected from large samples of individuals with diverse aphasia presentations. Measures of central tendency and performance ranges are provided for readers to use in the calculation of standard scores. Our aim in developing this battery is to provide an objective means of determining the extent of semantic impairment. This in turn will help clinicians to differentiate semantically- and phonologically-based word processing impairments and to determine appropriate treatment strategies.
