Assess Cognitive Severely Demented Elderly
The Severe Impairment Battery (SIB) was developed for individuals who are too impaired to complete standard neuro-psychological tests. SIB focuses on gathering direct performance-based data on a wide variety of low-level tasks that take into account the specific behavioral and cognitive deficits associated with severe dementia. The test allows for non-verbal and partially correct responses, as well as for simpler response modes such as matching.
