AbstractThis study was designed to determine the validity of Reitan-Indiana Aphasia Screening Test for Farsi speaking neuropsychology patients, (Vahedian Translation and Modification). Scores of fifty right handed males with damage to the brain hemisphere or with no history of brain damage, ages from 18 to 35 were compiled on Reitan-Indiana Aphasia Screening Test (Vahedian Translation and Modification). One way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was used to test the differences in the means among the diagnostic groups. Statistical analysis substantiated the hypothesis that the Reitan-Indiana Aphasia Screening Test (Vahedian Translation and Modification) distinguishes between Farsi speaking aphasic patients and non-aphasic Farsi speaking patients. It was found that anomia and dyscalculia are common symptoms of Farsi speaking individuals who have a history of left hemisphere brain damage.
