ABSTRACT
An index of brain damage adapted from an adult neuropsychological assessment key was applied to the WISC scores of 40 brain-damaged and control children. Using the existing adult cut-off points, 30 out of 40 nine- to fourteen- year-old children were correctly classified as brain-damaged or control on the basis of 4 WISC performance test scores. This rate of correct classification was highly significant (p<.O/).
