The new CLQT+ forms can be used with the original CLQT kit as the traditional administration hasn't changed.
CLQT+ offers two standard administration paths - a Traditional Administration and an Aphasia Administration. Whether you administer at bedside or in an office, the tasks administered for each path are slightly different:
*Additional points scored for following auditory directions within this task for the Aphasia Administration.
Users and Applications
The CLQT+ can be used by:
- Speech-language pathologists
- Occupational therapists
- Other qualified professionals interested in a quick measure of cognitive/linguistic status
Use the CLQT+ test:
- as part of a larger screening/assessment process
- for intervention planning and progress monitoring
The CLQT+ is particularly suited for several special uses:
Progress monitoring - Because of its brief administration time, the CLQT+ may be used at intervals in recovery to show progress. In particular, the Clock Drawing task may be used descriptively as a "mini-screen" of cognitive status -every few days to a week in recovery or at an interval of at least two months with cognitive decline, such as dementia.
Driving assessments - Occupational therapists and related professionals may use the CLQT+ as part of a larger assessment process on driving readiness, to quickly assess cognitive skills needed for safe and successful vehicle operation.
Competency assessment - Now with the Aphasia Administration, individuals with language impairment/aphasia can show cognitive ability levels apart from a language disorder.
Research - In adults with multiple types of neurological impact (e.g., TBI, stroke, neurodegenerative disease), professionals may use the CLQT+ due to its comprehensive focus in connection with its efficient administration time for patients of all severity levels.
One pilot (n=13) and three studies (n=92, 154, and 119, respectively) established the reliability and validity of the CLQT. Criterion cut scores, domain scores, and severity ratings were developed from these data sets along with the author's clinical expertise.
Aphasia sample (CLQT+)
One clinical study including 76 individuals diagnosed with aphasia associated with left hemisphere strokes were given the revised version of the CLQT. Consistent with the original CLQT data, scores have been provided for two age groups: ages 18–69 and ages 70–89. In general, as expected, average task scores are lower for the aphasia sample compared to the nonclinical sample.
Assessing Cognition using the Cognitive Linguistic Quick Test
CLQT is a proven and reliable measure for quickly assessing strengths and weakness in five cognitive domains (attention, memory, executive functioning, language and visuospatial skills). The new “plus” version of this well-established assessment allows for an administration path for clients with aphasia.
