The MoCA Chinese Los Angeles version (MoCA-ChLA) was adapted from the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) (Z.S. Nasreddine et al 2005) and developed as a single uniform screening tool for mild cognitive impairment among Mandarin-, Taiwanese-, and Cantonese-speaking individuals. In developing the MoCA-ChLA, we attempted to maintain the neuropsychological intent of the original MoCA instrument, as well as address the need for a linguistically and culturally appropriate cognitive screening test.
