Abstract

The Reading Miscue Inventory (RMI) developed by K. Goodman has been used to analyze oral reading of developing readers for several decades. However, this system has not been utilized with adults with aphasia. Additionally, specific oral reading errors have not been correlated to the different types of alexia with aphasia. Thus, by using the Western Aphasia Battery-Revised, the Boston Diagnostic Aphasia Exam-Third Edition reading subtests, and the RMI with stories from the Discourse Comprehension Test, volunteer participants with aphasia will be categorized into alexia types using A. Kertesz’s subtypes. Any reading miscues will then be correlated with the types of alexia.
