Use this test to assess Language-Related Functional Activities. The ALFA consists of 10 subtests, each of which assesses a different Functional activity: Telling Time, Counting Money, Addressing an Envelope, Solving Daily Math Problems, Writing a Check/Balancing a Checkbook, Understanding Medicine Labels, Using a Calendar, Reading Instructions, Using the Telephone, and Writing a Phone Message. The patient actually performs each Functional activity, and you record an objective, quantitative score. The ALFA helps you meet the daily, front-line need to quickly and conveniently assess patients’ Functional Language-Related Activities. The ALFA’s subtests require the use of all language modalities: auditory comprehension, verbal expression, reading and writing, as well as cognitive and motor skills.
