Montreal Protocol for the Evaluation of Communication (MEC) Manual

The Montreal Evaluation of Communication (MEC): A clinical test of communication

Use the MEC to assess communication in your patient with right hemisphere stroke or damage to the frontal lobes.

Description: The Montreal Evaluation of Communication (MEC) is a clinical test to evaluate language and communication ability in people who have problems with communication in the absence of aphasia such as patients with right hemisphere stroke or damage to the frontal lobes.  The MEC kit comprises a manual, a stimulus book, response booklets and informant questionnaires along with audio-files.  MEC is designed to provide speech pathologists and neuropsychologists with the means to examine the capacity of their patient to use language to communicate effectively. It assesses higher order language problems including the ability to use and understand lexico-semantic processes, metaphor and pragmatic inference and prosody.  Even without a frank aphasic disorder, these kinds of impairments can impact negatively on social and interpersonal functioning and result in reduced social opportunities and quality of life.

The Awareness of Social Inference Test (TASIT)

The Awareness of Social Inference Test (TASIT): an assessment of social cognition.

TASIT is used worldwide to assess social cognitive disorders

Description: TASIT is designed to assess social cognition in people with acquired brain injuries, neuropsychiatric and developmental disorders. It uses videos of actors in everyday situations.  It is suitable for use by speech pathologist and clinical neuropsychologists to assess aspects of social cognition for diagnostic, management and treatment purposes. TASIT comprises three parts. Part 1 measures the ability to categorise emotions while Parts 2 and 3 use probe questions to assess the ability to understand feelings, thoughts, beliefs and intentions of the speakers as well as what they are mean by what they say (pragmatic inference). TASIT has alternate forms and normative data for around 400 adult speakers (Form A aged 16 to 75+; Form B; 16-40 years) and 650 adolescents (aged 13-15). To read more Click Here
