The Ross Information Processing Assessment-Geriatric: Second Edition (RIPA-G:2) is a comprehensive, norm-referenced, assessment battery designed to identify, describe, and quantify cognitive-linguistic deficits in the geriatric population (individuals 55 years and older). Speech-language pathologist, neuropsychologists, psychologists, and other rehabilitation professionals can use the test. The RIPA-G:2 is an individually administer test, taking approximately 30 minutes to complete.
