WAB-R is an individually administered assessment for adults with acquired neurological disorders (e.g., as a result of stroke, head injury, dementia). It classifies the type and severity of aphasia disorder (if present) and gives a clinically valid baseline for diagnosis, prognosis and research.
Uses & Applications
The WAB-R manual also includes a chapter on applications of the WAB-R for individuals with various types of dementia, including Alzheimer's, vascular, subcortical, and Primary Progressive Apahasia (PPA).
New! Check out a recent publication on nearly 50 years of uses and applications to the WAB-R.
A full battery of 8 subtests (32 short tasks), the WAB-R includes:
The original WAB was first standardized on a population of 150 individuals with aphasia and 59 controls. A second standardization was undertaken which included an additional 215 individuals with aphasia and 63 controls. Evidence of reliability and validity is found in the test manual and demonstrates strong performance as part of an assessment process for research and/or clinical use. An additional 20 participants (14 with aphasia, 6 without) completed new or adapted tasks for the WAB-R and data showed similarities in difficulty and frequency of use to the original items.
