Rey Auditory Verbal Learning Test (AVLT) performance in individuals with recent-onset spinal cord injury Academic Article uri icon


  • Objective: To present Rey Auditory Verbal Learning Test (AVLT) normative data for persons with recent-onset spinal cord injury (SCI). Setting: A Southeastern rehabilitation facility. Participants: One hundred eighty-four persons (133 males and 51 females) with recent-onset SCI assessed with the Rey AVLT during their inpatient rehabilitation hospitalization. Results: General trends toward decreased recall with increasing age and increased recall with increasing educational level were noted. Gender differences were not detected. Average scores are presented in tables by age and by education separately. Conclusions: The normative information presented may assist rehabilitation psychologists in providing interpretations and recommendations to rehabilitation team members regarding each individual's ability to learn and benefit from verbal instruction in rehabilitation therapies in comparison with other individuals with SCI.
