Token Test

This 22 item test of language comprehension is essentially an abbreviation and modification of the Token Test of De Renzi and Vignolo (De Renzi and Vignolo, 1962; Boller and Vignolo, 1966). Certain minor alterations were made to facilitate administration. Twenty tokens of small and large circles and squares in five colors; red, black, green, yellow, and white are employed to assess the subjectís ability to comprehend and carry out simple commands.
