The Arizona Battery for Cognitive-Communication Disorders–Second Edition (ABCD-2) is a standardized test battery for the comprehensive assessment and screening of patients suspected of having mild to moderate neurocognitive disorders, including mild cognitive impairment, dementia, and traumatic brain injury. The test contains 17 brief subtests that evaluate five domains: Mental Status, Episodic Memory, Language Expression, Language Comprehension, and Visuospatial Construction. Four optional screening tasks are available in order to determine whether participants’ limitations with vision, reading, and other difficulties will impact their ABCD-2 performance.
