Étalonnage de l'épreuve de dénomination sur définition

Abstract : The denomination by definition test (D.D.T) was conceived in 2011 by Amélie Vignaud and Virginie Berland. The test's primary objective is to evaluate the extent of word finding difficulties with brain-damaged adult patients. This evaluation tool consists in testing patients' denomination capacities, using a definitional sentence. Words to be produced belong to different grammatical categories : nouns (abstract and concrete), adjectives, verbs. We calibrated the D.D.T so as to optimize its future use in speech therapy research. Ninety-six healthy subjects, from 18 to 85-years old, and parted into two educational background groups (+ or - 12 school years), have participated in that normalization. Averages, medians, and standard deviations were calculated and can be used. The D.D.T was also proposed to eleven brain-damaged patients so as to obtain a clinical analysis of the test's conditions with pathological persons, and to verify its sensibility.
