Réflexion autour de l'élaboration d'une batterie d'outils écologiques concernant les tâches administratives et budgétaires, à destination de patients héminégligents

Abstract : Left Unilateral Neglect (UN) is a neuropsychological disorder that often occurs after a stroke, in the event of a right brain damage. These patients suffer from a spatial cognition disorder sometimes also linked to executive functions disorder. Such disorders may impact the skills and the self-sufficiency of these patients regarding administrative and budgetary tasks in their everyday life. This aspect has barely been taken into account so far. Using an ecological perspective, we created a tool to assess these particular skills and measure the impact of UN and executive disorders on the fulfillment of administrative and budgetary tasks. The test that we developped consists of eight ecological tasks, close to everyday life situations, as well as questionnaires related to administrative and budgetary aspects. Our testing procedures have been submitted to unilateral neglect patients and their controls in order to compare their productions. The results of our study show an impairment of the patients' budgetary skills and a link between UN, executive disorders and the achievement of administrative and budgetary tasks. This study also enables to consider a rehabilitation that would take into account these specific needs so as to improve these patients' everyday life.
