Short Description of Instrument
The Boston Diagnostic Aphasia Examination helps to distinguish between disorders of language and disorders of aphasic syndromes. The test is organized into five major sections: Conservational and Expository Speech; Auditory Comprehension; Oral Expression; Understanding Written Language; and Writing.
Scoring is based upon the severity rating scale, the rating scale profile of speech characteristics, and the pattern of performance across subtests and modalities after raw scores have been converted to z-scores. 2
