Abstract

The need for an aphasia screening tool validated in Greek speaking population is long overdue. Until now, clinicians are relied on informal assessment and observation. The aim of this paper is to present the process of adaptation and validation of the Aphasia Screening Test (Whurr, 1996) in Greek speaking population. This test was used mainly due to its use widely across different countries and languages.
