Validation du test de langage élaboré auprès d'un échantillon de sujets cérébro-lésés âgés de 20 à 39 ans

Abstract : High-level language disorders affects many neurological diseases such as brain injury, Multiple Sclerosis or stroke. Subtle language deficits and high-level language are not much developed in the litterature. Our study concerns the assessment of high-level language for young adults with brain damage. An assessment protocol for high-level language was created in 2000 by Angelique Moreira named Test de Langage Elaboré. This battery enables the assessment of various aspects of high-level language abilities (lexical, syntactic, pragmatic and discursive) on receptive and expressive language mostly on oral modality. After being modified and standardized in 2007 by Celine Lécureuil for the age group 20-39, we have administered this test to a sample of adults with brain damage in order to achieve its validation. Our hypotheses were that a brain injury would have a significant impact on test scores and that this battery would be applicable in real situations with brain-damaged subjects. 25 patients with various neurological diseases have been recruited and were submitted to Test de Langage Elaboré. Statistical analysis enabled us to compare their results with those of the control group. Their performance has been linked to their cognitive assessment. The results of this study demonstrate the validity of the test and the practical applicability of the protocol. The group of subjects with brain damage gets significantly lower results than the control group in most tasks. The non-significant results allowed us to consider possible modifications for the protocol.
