ABSTRACT: Concomitant with a growing interest in neuropsychological assessment as it relates to the school environment is the need for procedures that are valid and reliable. This article describes such neuropsychological assessment procedures that school psychologists can employ for the differential assessment of learning disorders primarily caused by dysfunction in the central nervous system. The recommended procedures are based on the theoretical notion that learning acquisition represents a hierarchy of information processing skills. A description of the hierarchical model along with related assessment procedures is presented.
