Edith Kaplan is a respected pioneer of neuropsychological tests who did most of her work in the Boston area.
She developed a refined version of the widely used Halstead-Reitan battery and mentored many current day prominent researchers.
She is also the founder of the Boston Process Approach to neuropsychological test interpretation, which examines the process by which the patient solves a problem rather than simply looking at their numerical scores. Kaplan helped create the Boston Diagnostic Aphasia Examination, the [[Boston Naming Test], and other tools to describe and treat aphasia.
