Abstract

How is aphasia assessment carried out in practice? how are standardized test procedures transformed into situated interactions between a speech-language therapist and a person with aphasia? What are the concerns of therapists when testing? Research has focused on the reliability and validity of standardized aphasia tests or on development of new model-based tests (Spreen and Risser, 2003), but less attention has been given to the implementation of testing procedures in face-to-face interaction with clients.
