Separate instruments are available for aphasia, apraxia, dysarthria, and dysphagia. The Quick Assessments are informal tools that provide descriptive information about specific behaviors related to the disorder. The Quick Assessment for Aphasia includes stimulus materials and informal tasks for assessing auditory comprehension, verbal expression, reading, writing, and math skills in adolescents and adults with aphasia. Basic skills such as verbal labeling, answering questions, giving basic information, and general conversation are assessed. The instrument can generally be administered in under 20 minutes. The assessments for dysarthria, apraxia, and dysphagia each includes a short instruction booklet and 50 record forms with task items that can be used to identify problems commonly observed in patients.
