Other ASL Language Probes

These are other language and memory tests that we have incorporated into our test battery. Some of the tests are from other assessment sources and some are tests that our team has created to address specific issues in sign languages. The tests that were created by others remain as true to the originals as possible. Any changes are noted and the justification for those changes is provided. For many of the tests, you can expect deaf signers to compare favorably to the hearing spoken language users that the test was designed for. There are some exceptions that we discuss where appropriate.
