to the Mississippi Aphasia Screening Test
Mississippi Aphasia Screening Test (MAST) was developed as a brief,
repeatable screening measure for individuals with severely impaired
communication/language skills. Such a brief measure may be advantageous
for individuals with severe language impairments who may be frustrated
and stressed during lengthy testing sessions. The MAST was designed
to be used for serial assessments to detect changes in language
abilities over time. The MAST was initially developed by a team
of neuropsychologists, physiatrists, and speech-language pathologists.
The current form has nine subtests that range from 1 to 10 items
per subscale. The MAST can be administered in 5 to 15 minutes. Finally,
it has been utilized with a wide variety of patient populations
including traumatic brain injury, stroke, epilepsy, anoxia, dementia,
and various encephalopathies.
