The adaptation of an instrument to evaluate neuropsychological mechanisms that underlies language to Brazilian Portuguese is presented. It is considered that the instrument presented here is useful for diagnosis and neuropsychological assessment of patients suffering from acquired language disorders because it provides important information for designing an effective intervention consistent to the difficulties of the patients.
