Abstract

The evaluation of memory in adults with neurogenic communication disorders is complicated by the fact that traditional memory assessment emphasizes verbal content. Also, standardized test procedures often include long and complex instructions that place heavy comprehension demands on clients. This article provides an overview of these and other issues to consider when assessing memory in adults with neurogenic communication disorders. Specifically, this article will include (1) a description of the concept of memory for clinical assessment and definitions of common terms; (2) a general review of assessment methods and selected tests; and (3) considerations for assessing adults with neurogenic communication disorders.
