Abstract

In a three-year-follow-up study aphasic patients (n=17) received the ScreeLing, a screeningstest for semantic, phonological and syntactic processing, the Token Test and an interview at 2-4 days, 9-12 days, 2 months, 3 months, 6 months and 3 years post onset. The greatest improvement on all measures occurred between 9-12 days and 2 months post onset. The severity at 2 months post onset was decisive for the final outcome at 3 years p.o.
