The Neuropsychological Evaluation of Children with Learning Disabilities.
Reed, J. C.; Axelrod, Penny
Described is the use of the Halstead-Reitan Neuropsychological Tests in the evaluation of children with learning disabilities. It is explained that these tests are based on a combined evaluation of four methods of inference: level of performance, ratio scores (measuring the discrepancy between overlearned and seldom practiced behavior to infer the presence of brain injury), pathognomonic signs (such as aphasia), and right versus left comparisons. Specific components considered include the category test, tactual performance test (measuring time, memory and localization), speech sound perception test, and tactile form recognition test. (CL)
