Naming Patterns in Typically Aging Adults
Naming Patterns in Typically Aging Adults. In Clinical Aphasiology Conference: Clinical Aphasiology Conference (2007 : 37th : Scottsdale, AZ : May 22-26, 2007) / : (2007).
The purpose of this investigation was to confirm the presence of three distinct naming patterns identified by Hough (1998) on the Test of Adolescent/Adult Word Finding (TAWF) in a group of fifty non-neurologically-impaired older adults. The use of cluster analysis with k-means procedure confirmed presence of the three profiles: 1) 54% showed naming skills within normal limits; 2) 18% showed normal psychometric performance but selective impairment for picture naming of nouns; and 3) 28% exhibited abnormal standard scores and accuracy across the TAWF. Naming patterns of these groups may represent variances in word retrieval skills that exist among typical adults as they age.
