WESTBOROUGH, MA June 7, 2016 Written language is assessed as part of all neuropsychological evaluations. Cultural sensitivity is essential to assure that a person receives everything he needs from the assessment process. The phrase shown above was written during the neuropsychological assessment. I asked the man to write a sentence as a routine part of the language screening. He could not write the sentence in English but made the attempt in his native Arabic. I may have missed seeing his intact written language had I written off his preserved capacity in Arabic. In spite of living here in the United States this 64-year old lost an appreciable amount of his English language early following an acquired brain injury. The speech-language pathologist agreed that his therapy should be completed using his English. Slowly much of what he had lost returned to him.
