Edith Kaplan

Edith Kaplan is a respected pioneer of neuropsychological tests who did most of her work at the Boston VA Hospital. She developed a refined version of the widely used Halstead-Reitan battery and mentored many prominent researchers. She is also the founder of the Boston Process Approach to neuropsychological test interpretation, which examines the process by which the patient solves a problem rather than simply looking at the patient's numerical scores. The Boston Process also tailors which tests to give a patient instead of administering an entire test battery to every subject, regardless of their condition. Kaplan helped create the Boston Diagnostic Aphasia Examination, the Boston Naming Test, and other tools to describe and treat aphasia. She is currently a professor at Suffolk University in Boston and at Boston University.
