Clinical Application of the Cognitive Linguistic Quick Test+ for SLPs


Meeting Description:
The CLQT was designed to quickly assess strengths and weaknesses in five cognitive domains (Attention, Memory, Executive Functions, Language, and Visuospatial Skills). The CLQT+ adds an important element--an optional new administration path for people with diminished language capacity/aphasia. Including one new semantic comprehension task and scoring for several elements within the current tasks, the CLQT+ offers: more flexibility in administration; clearer interpretation for people with aphasia/language impairment; the same foundation for a quick, reliable cognitive assessment; and an effective tool for English- or Spanish-speaking adults with known or suspected neurological impairment as a result of stroke, traumatic brain injury, or dementia. With new changes to an assessment come possible new uses and effective methods for clinicians to maximize the potential data gathered during an evaluation. Attendees will learn about changes to this trusted assessment and focus will be made on how to use this assessment effectively in clinical practice.
