ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to investigate the neurocognitive characteristics’ differences between children with cerebral palsy and average children, and through the discriminant function analysis of two groups by the Computerized Neurocognitive Function Test(CNT). This study was investigated 93 children with cerebral palsy and average children in Busan City. The concrete findings of this study was as follows. First, the result of examination neurocognitive characteristics of the children with CP group showed significant difference with average children, and CP group showed lower performance than the average children group on attention test, memory test, higher cognitive function test. Second, the result of the discriminant function analysis of two groups by CNT showed that was very powerful discriminating variable of two groups as attention test 94.4%, memory test 90%, higher cognitive function test 96.7%. and total CNT 97.8%. Therefore, this study suggested that the neurocognitive characteristics by CNT was the powerful discriminators of two groups. And CNT could be applicable to children with CP as a neurocognitive assessment battery of them.
