Practice Guidelines for Standardized Assessment for Persons with Traumatic Brain Injury (Ancds Bulletin Board) (Academy of Neurologic Communication Disorders and Sciences)

This article is one of a series of publications by the Academy of Neurologic Communication Disorders and Sciences (ANCDS) working groups on evidence-based clinical practice (EBP) in neurologic communication disorders. The EPB project was initiated in 1997, when ANCDS established committees of experts to develop EBP guidelines for the following areas: dysarthria, aphasia, dementia, apraxia, and cognitive-communication disorders associated with traumatic brain injury (TBI). The scope and mission of the EBP project are described in detail in previous publications (Golper et al., 2001; Kennedy et al., 2002; Sohlberg et al., 2003). This article was generated by the subcommittee on cognitive-communication disorders associated with TBI, and its purpose is to examine the evidence for the use of standardized, norm-referenced tests. Evaluation and assessment using nonstandardized tests and other approaches will be addressed in a separate publication. The full Technical Report is available at www.ancds.org. **********
