Abstract

Date Presented 04/07/19

We conducted a validation study on a performance-based assessment of EF called Front Desk Duty in mild stroke patients. Preliminary findings suggest that FDD can be scored reliably and distinguishes between groups of healthy adults and those with mild stroke who fail an EF screen. This study expands the repertoire of available multitasking assessments, which will contribute to better identification of people with mild stroke who could benefit from OT intervention.
