The Sklar Aphasia Scale was used to test 20 bilingual and polyglot aphasic patients in a project carried out in Haifa, Israel. The test was compared to the L.M.T.A. on 18 of the patients and proved to be valid. This writer believes that it is an easily translatable, adaptable scale which could be used for aphasics in other parts of the world where it is impractical to test the patient in his home language.
