The most up-to-date resource of comprehensive information for
conducting cross-battery assessments
The Cross-Battery assessment approach--also referred to as the
XBA approach--is a time-efficient assessment method grounded
solidly in contemporary theory and research. The XBA approach
systematically integrates data across cognitive, achievement, and
neuropsychological batteries, enabling practitioners to expand
their traditional assessments to more comprehensively address
referral concerns. This approach also includes guidelines for
identification of specific learning disabilities and assessment of
cognitive strengths and weaknesses in individuals from culturally
and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

knowledge and skills they need to make optimal use of psychological
assessment instruments. Each concise chapter features numerous
callout boxes highlighting key concepts, bulleted points, and
