The Behavioural Inattention Test (BIT) is an objective behavioral test of everyday skills relevant to visual neglect, aimed at increasing the understanding of specific difficulties patients experience. There are two parallel versions, each comprising six “conventional” subtests and nine behavioral subtests. Short and easy to understand and interpret, the BIT is applicable to a wide range of environmental settings. The BIT has been validated against conventional tests of neglect and therapists’ reports. It also has excellent interrater, test retest, and alternate form reliability.
