Content: What it Tests

Assesses neuropsychological development in children.

Evaluates attention/executive functions, language, visuospatial processing, sensory-motor functions, memory and learning in children with congenital or acquired brain dysfunction, damage or disease.

Detects strengths and subtle deficiencies in 5 functional domains:

1. Attention/executive functions: assesses inhibition, self-regulation, monitoring, vigilance, selective and sustained attention, maintenance of response set, planning, flexibility in thinking, figural fluency.

2. Language: phonological processing abilities, receptive language comprehension, expressive naming under confrontation and speeded naming conditions, verbal fluency, ability to produce rhythmic oral motor sequences.

3. Sensory-motor functions: sensory input at tactile level, fine motor speed for simple and complex movements, ability to imitate hand positions, rhythmic and sequential movements, visuomotor precision in controlling pencil use.

4. Visuospatial processing: assess the ability to judge position and directionality, ability to copy 2-dimensional geometric figures and reconstruct 3-dimensional designs form a model or picture.

5. Memory and learning: assess immediate memory for sentences and immediate and delayed memory for faces, names, and list learning, and narrative memory under free and cued recall conditions.

Time

Core assessment:
3-4 = 45 minutes
5-12 = 65 minutes

Full NEPSY
3-4 = 1 hour
5-12 = 2 hours

Age

3-4 and 5-12

Scores Provided

Scaled scores, percentile ranks, core separate domain scores (standard scores), base rate percentages, qualitative observations.

For domain scores: expanded assessment using additional subtests within 1 domain, or assessment across domains.

Reliability

"Manual reports reliability statistics, including inter-rater and interscorer agreement, subtest internal consistency, and test-retest stability."

No specific coefficients given.

Validity

"Validity data include content and construct validity, as well as studies with children diagnosed with learning disabilities, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorders, TBI, autistic disorders, and speech and language impairments."

No specific coefficients given.
