The NAB is a comprehensive and conormed assessment that offers the combined strengths of both a flexible and fixed battery to allow clinicians to focus on specific areas of concern.
The NAB consists of five domain-specific modules: Attention, Language, Memory, Spatial, and Executive Functions. A sixth module, Screening, allows the clinician to determine which of the other five domain-specific modules are appropriate to administer to an individual patient. Each of the six NAB modules is self-contained and may be administered independently of the other modules.
Note: If you are purchasing a NAB module kit—with the exception of the Screening Module—we strongly recommend that you also purchase the NAB Administration, Scoring, and Interpretation Manual (Item #5088–TM) and the NAB Demographically Corrected Norms Manual (Item #5091–TM). All kits include the NAB Video Training Program DVD and the NAB-SP.
Qualification Level: C—NAB Complete Kit; NAB Form 1 Kit; Kits and components of Attention, Memory, Spatial, and Executive Function modules; Score Summary/Profile Forms; NAB Video Training Program; and NAB Daily Living tests.

"...the NAB is generally comparable to traditional language and visuospatial measures, and it sufficiently detects attention and executive deficits."
