Abstract

We are constructing a standardized assessment of phonology in aphasia based on four domains of phonologic processes: concept representation, reading, repetition, and perception. The aim of this paper is to present the results of item development for the repetition domain. Item response theory was the basis of item development and statistical analysis. The final item bank consisted of 113 items which demonstrated sound psychometric properties and adequately measured the range of abilities of our participants with aphasia. The next step in finalizing this domain will focus on shortening the length of the test to include the most salient items.
