Analysis of Cognitive Environmental Support (ACES): Preliminary testing Academic Article uri icon


  • Although the environment can impact, or otherwise support, cognition, no measure currently exists to help the clinician identify items within the environment that may support cognition. To address this gap in the literature, the Analysis of Cognitive Environmental Support (ACES) was developed. Here, content validity, concurrent validity and inter-rater reliability were assessed, in parallel, for the ACES. Based on the findings, modifications were made to the tool, which is included in an effort to initiate further research regarding its clinical utility.
