 The present study investigated the utility for the activities of the daily living checklist (ADL checklist), which was designed to evaluate unilateral spatial neglect (USN) easily and effectively at a clinical site by revising and reconstructing the Catherine Bergego Scale, and the awareness of disabilities in patients with USN by applying the ADL checklist. 21 left-hemiplegic patients were asked to answer the ADL checklist by the author and evaluated via the Behavioral Inattention Test (BIT). It was also done by their therapists with the same ADL checklist. The results are as follows : the assessment was based on the ADL checklist evaluated by their therapists agreed, for the most part, with the assessment by BIT. And a significant correlation was obtained between the total score of the ADL checklist evaluated by their therapists and the BIT scores. The total score of the ADL checklist evaluated by patients themselves did not significantly correlate with either the BIT scores, or the total score evaluated by their therapists. And the ratio of the number which was aware of USN in each activity of the ADL checklist evaluated by their therapists had more than that by patients themselves. As a result, the ADL checklist seems to be useful for behavioral assessment of USN by their therapists, evaluating awareness of disabilities in patients with USN by themselves. Patients with USN had differences in the awareness of disabilities in each activity of daily living, and the evaluating awareness of disabilities in patients with USN by themselves had need of more consideration.
