aphasia test is designed to be given to poststroke cases soon after the
onset of symptoms, preferably at bedside. It can be given long before
most other assessments are appropriate.

The BASA probes the
spared language abilities of persons with severe aphasia and provides
diagnostic information needed for immediate treatment. The 61 items
measure a wide variety of tasks and modalities, including auditory
comprehension, bucco-facial or limb praxis, gesture recognition, oral
and gestural expression, reading comprehension, writing, and
visual-spatial tasks.

Both gestural and verbal responses to the
items are scored, and refusals, affective responses, and perseverative
responses also are recorded. Gestural and verbal responses may be scored
in combination or separately, and both scores may be expressed as fully
or partially communicative.

Complete BASA Kit includes: Examiners Manual, Custom Clipboard, Manipulatives, Stimulus Cards, DVD, and 25 Record Forms, all in a storage box. (1989)
