Abstract

The development of culturally relevant psychological assessment tools and intervention procedures has not been commensurate with the rate of Hispanic population growth in the United States. The development of valid and reliable test measures for the assessment of this population must be based on empirical investigations. In this article, we present normative data on multiple measures from the Benton Laboratory and the Wisconsin Card Sorting Test. Results revealed equivalent findings for our Hispanic subjects and the English-speaking samples utilized in the original normative studies within the United States. We additionally review current trends and specific problems encountered in neuropsychological research with Hispanics, and suggest guidelines and directions for future research.
