Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

The Tile Tray is a new assessment of functional cognition for people with reduced hand function, based on the Recessed Tile Box of the Allen Diagnostic Module–2. This study compared the Tile Tray and the LACLS-5 in community-dwelling US elders. A moderate positive correlation between the two assessments was found overall and was strongest for participants who scored 5.0 or less on the Allen Cognitive Scale. Participants found the Tile Tray easier to manipulate by a three-to-one margin.
