Dementia of the Alzheimer Type (DAT) is a degenerative illness characterized by impairments in memory, linguistic, perceptive or praxic functions that vary in degree from patient to patient (Joanette et al., 1995). This heterogeneity also appears within a given cognitive function (Van der Linden & Hupet, 1993) and in the evolution of the disease (Joanette et al., 1995). Therefore, it is important to adapt cognitive intervention to each patient’s preserved functions. A thorough evaluation of preserved and impaired capacities is then a preliminary condition for appropriate intervention (Van der Linden, 1995; Fontaine, 1995).
