Supplemental – Highly Recommended: Epilepsy
Supplemental: Mitochondrial Disease (Mito)
Short Description of Instrument
Purpose: To characterize level of general cognitive function and provide a frame of reference from which to interpret other tests if any are administered.
Comment: This is an oral reading test containing words with atypical grapheme to phoneme associations making it difficult to pronounce words phonetically. AMNART is selected over other similar measures (i.e., WRAT Reading, WTAR) since it is in the public domain.
Time Estimate: 5 minutes.
Primary Dependent Measure: Regression-based IQ Estimate.
