Échelle de comportement verbal en vie quotidienne de patients neurodégénératifs présentant un trouble du langage

Abstract : Objectives: Our objective is to conduct a preliminary study in order to validate a tool for assessing the verbal behavior in daily life of neurodegenerative patients with a language disorder (the Neurodegenerative Verbal Behavior Scale [NVBS]). To this end, this scale was presented to caregivers of two groups of patients with neurodegenerative diseases and language impairment (primary progressive aphasia [PPA], Alzheimer's disease [AD]) as well as to a control group of healthy subjects in order to study whether different profiles distinguish these two diseases.
Method: Twenty-two caregivers of patients with AD or PPA completed the NVBS. An overall score and subscores were calculated and compared between the two patient groups and the control group, and correlated with speech and neuropsychological tests.
Results: The comparisons show a significant difference in scores between the patients of the two diseases and the control group. A significant difference between sub-scores was also observed. Furthermore, correlation analysis showed a link between the functional and pragmatic subscores of the NVBS and the subscores measuring the impact of the difficulties on daily life.
Conclusion: This study provides a first step in the validation of the NVBS by highlighting significant differences between APP and AD patients, and provides the first elements for external (speech therapy assessment) and internal (correlation of NVBS subscores) validation.
