Abstract
This paper discusses briefly the development and rationale behind the Luria-Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery-Children's Revision. Three investigations are discussed: (a) the development of normative data on a group of 125 normal children between the ages of 96 and 155 months, (b) development of the critical level formula for determining the upper bounds for normal performance given a child's age, and (c) a validation of the ability of the battery to discriminate between normal and brain-injured children selected as a separate sample from that used in the initial investigations. In the third study, a MANOVA as well as subsequent individual t tests indicated highly significant group differences. Counting scores above the patient's critical level (as determined from the formula designed in the second investigation) resulted in correct classification of 89% of the normal children and 79% of the brain-injured children. Methods of interpreting the battery and limitations of the current study are discussed
