Predicting Academic Skills by Neuropsychological Functions

Seventy-nine subjects were evaluated for cognitive deficits, and the results were then used to predict academic skills. We hypothesized that reading and spelling skills would be best predicted by auditory processing, while arithmetic skills would be best predicted by spatial perception. Results showed arithmetic significantly related to bilateral processing, spatial-perception, executive, and intellect skills. Reading and spelling skills depended upon auditory processing as predicted, but was also related to motor speed and spatial-tactile learning. The results suggested that academic skills map to neuropsychological functions in complex fashions.
