Kaufman-ABC Intelligence Test

The Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children, Second Edition (KABC-II), is a measure of processing and cognitive ability for children and adolescents between the ages of 3 and 18 years. The KABC-II is a versatile instrument that can be used to assess for intellectual disability, learning disorders, developmental disabilities, more focal neurocognitive impairments, and intellectual giftedness, although it should be noted that the diagnosis of intellectual disability requires additional assessment of adaptive behavior.
