Background and Aim: The aim of this study was to collect and review Aphasia screening test s for speech- language pathologists .


Materials and Methods : Searching was done in databases of MEDLIN, SID, Magiran, IRAN MEDEX and 5 site of ASHA, Pub Med, Google Scholar, Science Direct , and Web of Science from 1949 to 2012 , and Screening tests were collected and reviewed on the basis of time of composition, subtests ,validity, and reliability.


Results: In this study, 14 screening tests were identified. The maximum number of items were ( 72 subtests) for screening test and the minimum number of test items were ( 4 subtests) for Franchay Aphasia Screening test (FAST). The latter is the first test which evaluated the areas of comprehension and writing in addition to reading and speech . The results indicated that 10 test s have one type of validity, and eight tests have reliability .


Conclusion: Considering the importance of the aphasia disorder and lack of a complete source for quick and easy identification of Aphasia, and also finding screening tests in this disorder in Persian language, the results of this study can be useful to familiarize speech and language therapists with this disorder. A pplication of these test s is recommended in various stages of rehabilitation .
