The Multilingual Aphasia Examination (MAE) is a test battery used to diagnose the presence of aphasic disorders and evaluate their severity and type. It contains eleven subtests: visual naming (using a 10-picture flip chart), sentence repetition, word association, oral spelling, written spelling, block spelling (using plastic letters), MAE token test (using colored plastic shapes of various sizes), aural comprehension of words and phrases, reading comprehension of words and phrases, rating of articulation, and rating of praxic features of writing. The performance of 48 patients with aphasic disorders was used to calibrate five of the subtests which measure the degree of the disorder. Normed versions of the test are available in English and Spanish, but the translations in German and French are without norms for native speakers of those languages. The subtests are administered one-on-one and include score sheets on which examinee responses are recorded and totaled. All of the information necessary for interpreting obtained scores is present in the Manual of Instructions. Percentiles, mean scores by grade level, and a separate subset of the norms obtained from elderly examinees are provided.
