Cantonese Version of the Birmingham Cognitive Screen for Stroke Survivors
The BCoS is a neuropsychological test battery designed to assess impairment to a variety of cognitive domains, including language, in clients with brain injuries. By assessing clients across different domains the BCoS can aid clinicians in designing rehabilitation programmes and evaluating therapy outcomes. The HK-BCoS was developed as a tool for work with Cantonese-speaking clients in Hong Kong and found to be a valid, reliable tool for stroke survivors.
More information about the HK-BCoS can be obtained from Professor Brendan Weekes firstname.lastname@example.org in the Division of Speech and Hearing Sciences.
Cantonese Aphasia Battery
The CAB was designed by Professor Edwin Yiu, Division of Speech and Hearing Sciences, and is based on the English language Western Aphasia Battery. The test is widely used to assess Cantonese speakers with aphasia. The CAB assesses the language function of adults with neurological disorders, such as those resulting from stroke, head injury or dementia.
