General notes on assessment Need to assess auditory and written comprehension, and spoken and written production, but consider eﬀects of peripheral impairments in each modality. Key assessment areas and available methods Area of assessment Examples of available assessment tools Response type Comprehension of spoken words – high imageability PALPA 47: Spoken word–picture matching Picture selection ADA Comprehension Battery S2: Word–picture matching Picture selection PALPA 48: Written word–picture matching Picture selection ADA Comprehension Battery S2Wr: Word–picture matching Picture selection PALPA 49: Auditory synonym judgements Same/different ADA Comprehension Battery S1: Synonym matching Same/different PALPA 50: Written synonym judgements Same/different ADA Comprehension Battery S1Wr: Synonym matching – written version Same/different Comprehension of written words – high imageability Comprehension of spoken words – high and low imageability Comprehension of written words – high and low imageability 42 Deﬁcits and assessment Comparison across modalities PALPA 53: Picture naming / written naming / repetition / oral reading / written spelling Spoken and written naming, repetition, oral reading, writing Semantic association/ real-world knowledge Pyramids and Palm Trees (picture and written versions) (Howard & Patterson, 1992) Picture selection, written word selection PALPA 51: Word semantic association Written word selection PALPA 52: Spoken wordwritten word matching Written word selection Access to semantics where avoidance of pictures is necessary; comparison with single modality (spoken and written word comprehension) Additional assessment options Assessments that control for imageability investigate the use of the route through the semantic system.
There are three stages involved in listening for meaning: auditory phonological analysis, the phonological input lexicon and the semantic system. Phonological input-to-output conversion is also relevant here. This links auditory phonological analysis to phonological assembly. As this route bypasses the lexicons, it allows repetition of nonwords while also contributing to real word repetition. 1 Auditory comprehension of words. Deﬁcits of auditory comprehension of spoken words A deﬁcit in auditory phonological analysis has been referred to as ‘word sound deafness’ (Franklin, 1989).
The speciﬁc assessment of verbs is not addressed here because the focus of this book is on word retrieval rather than sentence processing. While comparison of verb retrieval with other categories of words is often central to informing the nature of the deﬁcit, interpretation of such behaviours is outside the scope of the theoretical model presented here. Word types In assessing spoken production, three types of word contrasts are useful: 1 2 3 High- and low-imageability words. High- and low-frequency words.
