Aphasia due to ischemic stroke is a common neurologic deficit after stroke. Therefore, rapid and accurate evaluation is essential to timely and appropriate care. The Aphasia Severity Rating System (ASRS) is a new scale for evaluating aphasia. The ASRS consists of six subscales: speech apprehension, paraphasia, fluency, agrammatism, comprehension, and prosody. The ASRS was developed by two speech-language pathologists to provide a global and inter-observer reliable measure of aphasia severity. This study was conducted to assess the validity and reliability of the ASRS in evaluation of aphasia. A retrospective study with 100 aphasic patients was conducted. Aphasia severity was evaluated using the ASRS and the Aachen Aphasia Test (AAT). The intraclass correlation coefficients for inter-rater and test-retest reliability of the ASRS were.76 and.82, respectively. The scale for the other subscales was similar to those of the AAT. These data suggest that the ASRS is a reliable and valid instrument for evaluation of aphasia.When it comes to fashion, well, LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton has always had it down pat. The French luxury conglomerate, which owns a number of high profile fashion brands including Dior, Dunhill and Vacheron Constantin, has been on a roll lately. In fact, you’d probably have to go back to the 1970s to find a point in time when LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton wasn’t making headlines.
LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton is not a company you take lightly. Don’t even try to mess with them. In April of this year, the French conglomerate hired Hilary Duff and her husband to be for a series of print ads. The ads, called ‘Hilary Duff, The Duffers,’ are promoting the brand’s “elegance and grace with a modern edge” along with features like “lightweight, super-silky fabric” and “ 0b46394aab
