Large Allen Cognitive Level Screen For the Visually impaired- LACLS
When determining a patient's ability to work and think independently and learn basic skills using this leather sewing square can be more effective than asking questions and trying to decipher what help the patient truly needs. The Large Allen Cognitive Level Screen is simple and rewarding for patients. Visual impairment often accompanies aging patients that also suffer from Dementia and Alzheimers. It is vital to know if someone can’t pass the test due to actual lack of ability or if they simply cannot work with the standard size test. That is why it is essential to have the larger sized test to assess those who are visually impaired.
What does this kit include?
1. Large size leather rectangle with precut holes on the outer edges (5-3/4" x 7")
2. Two blunt style needles
Steps to perform a Cognitive Test:
1. Client is shown a running stitch and asked to mimic the stitch several times.
2. Client is shown a more complex Whip-stich and is asked to make several stiches in a row.
3. Health care professional makes a mistake in a stitch and asks the client to fix it.
4. Client is shown the Cordovan stitch but not shown how to make it. The client must then perform the stitch on their own.
Who Uses the Large Cognitive Test?
This test is often performed on those who might be suffering from Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease to determine executive functioning rather than memory. This test is easy and essential in trying to determine patients’ level of independence. The larger test is to assess a patient who is visually impaired. Health care professionals can rely on this test to show if someone will be able to live on their own or need more assistance. This test should be used in conjunction with other tests.
