Description



Use the Apraxia Battery for AdultsSecond Edition (ABA-2)
to measure the presence and severity of apraxia in adolescents and
adults. The objective scoring system provides the clinician with an
initial step toward assessing recovery in relation to severity of
apraxia. This individually administered test consists of six subtests
that together take about 20 minutes to administer:

  • Diadochokinetic Rate
  • Increasing Word Length
  • Limb Apraxia and Oral Apraxia
  • Latency Time and Utterance Time for Polysyllabic Words
  • Repeated Trials Test
  • Inventory of Articulation Characteristics of Apraxia


The ABA-2 has been updated and redesigned. Those features clinicians
found useful were preserved, and added features make the test even more
effective at detecting the severity of apraxia. More difficult items
have been added to two subtests to raise the ceiling so clinicians can
identify patients with mild apraxia. Pictures and items have been
updated and new normative data were collected in the Fall and Spring of
1998 and 1999. The new Level of Impairment Profile yields a pattern of
scores that describes one of several different types of apraxic
speakers.



Test reliability, investigated by the coefficient
alpha, is high (reliability coefficients of .83 to .99 were obtained for
all subtests). Content, criterion-related validity, and construct
validity were studied through a review of the literature, item analysis,
comparing the results of the ABA-2 to the Porch Index of Communicative Ability,
comparing differences in scores on the ABA-2 of various
subpoplulations, and examining the correlations of the subtests. Results
indicate that examiners can use the ABA-2 with confidence.



Complete ABA-2 Kit includes:Examiners Manual, Picture Book, and 25 Profile/Examiner Record Forms, all in a sturdy storage box. (2000)
