The Aphasia Rapid Test is a bedside test allowing to rate aphasia severity in
the acute stroke period. This test is developed as a 26-point scale estimating the severity
of both speech comprehension and production in less than 5 min. Previously, ART was
used in English and French clinical practice. In Russian, there has
been no analogous bedside screening scale for acute hospital units. Tests which were
used before are detailed but time-consuming and effortful for individuals in the first days poststroke.
ART is a reliable measure allowing to identify language and speech disorders
(aphasia, dysarthria, or apraxia).
