Mini Mental Status Examination

This is a form of the Mini Mental State Examination amended for use with deaf people who use sign language. The items are intended to represent written English prompts for BSL signs. The BSL vocabulary that you think these prompts represent may well be different to that that I would use. For this reason, as well as the fact that no work has yet taken place to validate this amended scale, all diagnostic conclusions you may draw must be explicitly cautious.

The notes should never be detached from the body of the scale.
