Build on pilot development and evaluation of the psychometric properties of the Assessment for Living with Aphasia (ALA) using a larger sample of 75 individuals with aphasia.  Objectives include a method of documenting and evaluating elusive but critical quality of life outcomes directly related to living with aphasia; a means of evaluating the efficacy of various aphasia interventions based on ratings by the person with aphasia him or herself; and finally, support for clinical decisions as well as for decisions regarding allocation of funds to aphasia treatments that reduce the negative life consequences of aphasia.
