Over 18 years spent developing STAD in Japan
We have improved the test accuracy of STAD without compromise. You can use the screening test, which will be clearly different from your own tests, with ease in your clinical practice.
Ms. Ayumi Uehara (SLP)
I have been thinking about how I can reduce the burden of patients’, how I can better understand their symptoms at an early stage, and how to perform screenings in a short period. STAD is not difficult to use and it gets easier with practice. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
Ms. Miho Miyasaka (SLP)
When reviewing new patients, there were differences in review points between beginner medical members and experienced experts, and it seemed that beginners were not sure how to review them. We provided advice, however we were not convinced that our advice was 100% correct. Although screening is easy, the contents need to be understood.

Mr. Kentaro Araki is committed to screening test research, which evaluates communication abilities in the case of brain damage. He completed his Master’s and a Ph.D.in this subject from the Graduate School of Medicine at Chiba University, and is currently working as a project researcher. I will support him so that he can continue developing STAD research based on evidence and provide beneficial medical services that contribute to many clients with communication disorders.
Department of Rehabilitation, non-tenured professor,
I believe that the ultimate work of a speech pathologist leads to “Art” craftsmanship. The key task here is to appropriately capture the essence of a disorder and to thoroughly consider what type of mentorship is necessary to improve the person’s quality of life on their road to recovery in the aftermath of brain damage . Even unique and brilliant painters have insatiately repeated basic drawings at an early stage. Similarly, to improve your skills as a speech pathologist, you need to improve your judgment skills by performing a screening based on evidence. Dr. Araki’s STAD, which has been a research achievement for over a decade, will be useful for “Art” as a speech pathologist and the establishment of technologies and knowledge.
Kentaro Araki, a developer and representative of the STAD, is responsible for the contents.
Because we provide the STAD for FREE, we would be grateful if you could consider:
And making the STAD more useful and effective for improved clinical practice in the future!
