The purpose of the study was to test whether evaluations of cerebral vascular accident (CVA) patients show a significant relationship between ratings of Brunnstrom’s arm and hand stages and scores on Schenkenberg’s Line Bisection Test of unilateral neglect. Spearman rho correlation coefficients for 20 acute care right CVA subjects showed a highly significant relationship between performances on the two measures. Results can be interpreted to further the construct validity of the St. Marys CVA evaluation.
