Cognitive Linguistic Quick Test (CLQT)
Nancy Helm-Estabrooks, 2001

To quickly measure cognitive strengths and weaknesses

Age Range:
18 to 89 years

Individual: 15 to 30 minutes

The Cognitive Linguistic Quick Test (CLQT) enables you to quickly determine severity ratings (normal, mild, moderate, severe) for five primary domains of cognition (attention, memory, executive functions, language and visuospatial skills) and a Composite Severity Rating for adults with known or suspected neurological impairment due to strokes, head injury or dementia. 

CLQT's ten tasks, five of which have minimal language demands, tap specific cognitive skills within a short period and with relatively simple administration and scoring procedures. The ten tasks are:

Use CLQT results to target areas for direct treatment or everyday management of impaired skills, identify the need for more in-depth testing, or help determine a different diagnosis. It can be administered in 15 to 30 minutes and scored in 10 to 15 minutes. The full test can be administered at a table or bedside, as long as the patient can sit up and use a pen. 

Special effort was made to create some tasks with minimal language demands to assist in evaluating the cognitive functions of examinees with language disorders such as aphasia.
