Allen Cognitive Level Screen (ACLS) 2000 test manual (4th rev)

Author:

Summary: The Allan cognitive level screen (ACLS) is part of a body of assessment and references that comprise the Allen Cognitive Battery. The screening tool was designed to provide an initial estimate of cognitive function. The score from the screen is then validated by further observations of performance. The ACLS screens only ACL 'Modes 3.0 through to 5.8. At Levels 1 and 2 clients do not work with objects, and Level 6 is concerned with attention to symbolic cues. The ACLS is designed to assess the middle of the ACL range where the most important questions about ability to function occur.
