ABSTRACT

Objective : Cognitive abilities of persons with stroke are strong predictors of functional outcome in activities of daily living. The ACLS is an evaluation tool designed to characterize an individual's level of cognition and occupational performance. Although several studies suggest that the ACLS is a useful measurement tool of cognitive function, it has not yet been widely utilized in Korea. Therefore, we examined the correlations among the Allen Cognitive Level Screen(ACLS), the Mini Mental State Examination-Korean version(MMSE-K) and the Lowenstein Occupational Therapy Cognitive Assessment(LOTCA) in persons with stroke. Method : We studied thirty people with stroke(16 females and 14 males) who were admitted to occupational therapy department of a general hospital in Seoul. Participants were tested with the ACLS, the MMSE-K and the LOTCA. Result : The MMSE-K highly correlated with the LOTCA(rs = .738, p <.05), the ACLS moderately correlated with the MMSE-K(rs = .605, p < .05) and the LOTCA(rs = .678, p < .05). The ACLS and the MMSE-K showed a negative correlation with age. Conclusion : The ACLS, the MMSE-K and the LOTCA are valid and useful measurement tools evaluating cognitive function of persons with stroke in Korea.
