About This Product
The QNST-3R includes updated functional category scores (based on a nationally representative sample), along with revisions and clarifications to the Record Form, administration procedures, and scoring guidelines.
The QNST-3R is an individually administered, empirically based assessment of the development of motor coordination and sensory integration (both of which have been shown to relate to learning as well as to general daily functioning), seen as neurological soft signs (NSS). NSS are minor irregularities that include poor motor coordination, sensory perceptual changes, and difficulty sequencing complex motor tasks. Ongoing NSS are related to problems with learning, neurocognitive performance, and general daily functioning.
The QNST-3R Assesses:
• Motor maturity and development
• Tactile and kinesthetic processing
• Gross and fine muscle control
• Motor planning and sequencing
• Sense of rate and rhythm
• Spatial organization
• Visual and auditory perception
• Balance and vestibular function
• Attentional control
The Manual's updated literature review includes information about NSS seen in sports-related concussion (child and adult), and neurodegenerative diseases (such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases). The expanded norms now cover ages 5 to 80 years and up.
Assessment Tasks Include:
• Task 1: Figure Recognition and Production
• Task 2: Palm Form Recognition
• Task 3: Eye Tracking
• Task 4: Sound Patterns
• Task 5: Finger to Nose
• Task 6: Thumb and Finger Circle
• Task 7: Rapidly Reversing Repetitive Hand Movements
• Task 8: Arm and Leg Extension
• Task 9: Tandem Walk
• Task 10: Stand on One Leg
• Task 11: Skipping
• Task 12: Left–Right Discrimination
• Task 13: Behavioral Irregularities
NOTE: The QNST-3 forms are not compatible with the QNST-3R.
