Translation and Clinical Implementation of a Test of Language and Short-term Memory in Aphasia

Study Description:
The study procedures consist of testing your speech, language, memory and organization. For the language tests you will be asked to compare the sounds and meanings of words, name and describe pictures, repeat words and sentences, and retell stories. For the memory tests, you will be asked to repeat a series of numbers and words, and identify numbers and words in the series.
