The MAE assesses three different aspects of oral expression—naming, sentence repetition, and verbal associative capacity.

  • Use the MAE to valuate the presence, severity, and qualitative aspects of aphasic disorder.
  • Three tests assess oral verbal understanding; one test assesses reading comprehension; and three tests assess oral, written, and block spelling.
  • Speech articulation and the fluency-nonfluency dimension of expressive speech are rated, but not systematically sampled. Writing is evaluated through a test of written spelling.
  • Two normative samples are used: individuals ages 16-69 years and children ages 6-12 years.
  • A Spanish adaptation is available.
