Auditory-Perceptual Rating of Connected Speech in Aphasia (APROCSA)
APROCSA is a system for auditory-perceptual rating of connected speech in aphasia. It is inspired by the auditory-perceptual approach to the assessment of motor speech disorders (Darley, Aronson, & Brown, 1969a,b, 1975). Twenty-seven features of connected speech, representing many types of disruptions and abnormalities that are commonly observed in connected speech in aphasia, are each scored on a five-point scale.
APROCSA is described in detail in the following paper:
