Investigation of the Luria-Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery--Children's Revision with Learning Disabled Children.
Boliek-Uphoff, Carol; Obrzut, John E.
Twenty-three learning disabled (LD) children (age 8-12 years) and 15 nondisabled children (age 8-12 years) were individually administered the Luria-Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery-Children's Revision (LNNB). Means and standard deviations for each of the test's scales were computed by group, and individual T-tests were calculated for differences between the mean scores for both groups on each scale. LD Ss appeared to score higher than brain damaged Ss of a previous study. In general, correlations between scales were higher for the LD than for the normal group. There was a strong correlation between the WISC-R Full Scale IQ and the LNNB for the LD Ss. Discriminant analysis revealed that the LNNB accurately classified 87% of the normal and 87% of the LD Ss. Stepwise discriminant function analysis revealed that the expressive scale was the variable that contributed the most of all eight measures to the significant group separation. It was concluded that the two groups were significantly different on this scale with the LD Ss having generalized expressive problems. (CL)
