    • Abstract:
      The understanding of executive functioning in pediatricneuropsychological evaluation is of clinical significance, yet there are fewdevelopmentally appropriate executive function measures that have been adequatelynormed in this population. The present study provides normative data, collectedon a sample of 89 normal children from ages 7-12, for several measures thoughtto be appropriate for assessing executive functioning in children. Executivefunction measures were selected and/or modified to be developmentally appropriate,to tap less complex and integrative aspects of executive function, and toassess fundamental working memory (Self-Ordered Pointing: Delayed Alternation/Non-alternation)and inhibitory control (Developmental Stroop tasks: Go/No Go) dimensions ofexecutive functioning. The results supported the potential utility of thesemeasures in assessing those abilities in children. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
