Children with acquired and developmental problems often exhibit impairment in executive planning. The TOLDX 2nd measures higher order problem-solving ability to assess frontal lobe function in children and adults with developmental and acquired disorders. It is also used to evaluate the neuropsychological performance of children with attention, impulsivity, or activity control problems.
The second edition includes additional normative data specific to older adult populations and a new Stimulus-Bound score on the Adult Record form that measures cognitive impairment related to dementia. It also includes updated research supporting the validity of the TOLDX in various settings.
- The elimination of repeated trials for failed problems, which maintains task novelty
- The introduction of six- and seven-move test problem configurations, increasing sensitivity to executive functioning across age levels
- Empirical selection of test problem configurations, which allows assessment of the range of executive planning abilities that characterize child and adult population
