The new Severe Impairment Battery—Short Form (SIB–S) has been developed to meet the assessment needs for people with very severe dementia. It includes a number of items from the original SIB and takes only 10–15 minutes to administer. Subscale scores for nine cognitive domains can be calculated for the SIB–S:

  • Attention
  • Social Interaction
  • Memory
  • Language
  • Praxis
  • Construction
  • Concentration
  • Orientating to Name
  • Visuo-spatial Ability

The new SIB–S is published as a supplement to the original SIB and can be purchased to enhance your assessments for people with severe dementia.
