Comparison study between Luria-Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery (LNNB) and PASS among a sample for Egyptian school students with learning disability

Background

We are in bad need to compare the assessment batteries which have the same backgrounds either utilize or clarify the difference between them for the users. This research compares between LNNB and PASS which have the similarity background from Luria's theories in Brain functions. It answers for four questions: What are the similar and the difference between the background of LNNB and PASS? When and with whom could we use either LNNB or PASS? What is the difference between LNNB and PASS? Could we gather LNNB and PASS in one battery?

Materials and methods

The participants were five students and their average age was 16 years. This research used LNNB (Golden et al., 1980) and PASS (Das JP and Naglieri JA, 1995).

Results

There are some similar backgrounds between LNNB and PASS for example: the higher cortical functioning derivation of the brain functional units, LNNB is used to assess neurologically impaired patients, but PASS is used to evaluate individuals with: ADHD, LD, etc.

Discussion

There are some specific tests in LNNB and also in PASS, which give us more information about the examiner. Finally, I think YES; we could gather these two big batteries in one.
