The concurrent validity of the original and revised versions of the Leiter International Performance Scale was examined with 26 children (ages 4-16) with autism. Although the correlation between the two tests was high (.87), there were significant intra-individual discrepancies present in 10 cases, two of which were both large and clinically meaningful. Implications for assessment are drawn. (Contains references.) (DB)
