American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Functional Assessment of Communication Skills for adults (ASHA-FACS)


Purpose of the measure

The ASHA-FACS is a measure of functional communication. It does not aim to measure impairment. Rather, the assessment aims to measure how specific speech, language, hearing and/or cognitive deficits affect the performance of daily life activities (Frattali, Holland, Thompson, Wohl, & Ferketic, 1995).
