The present study explored the relationship between the scores of individuals with intellectual disabilities obtained on the BNT-II to their obtained scores on cognitive assessments that have been normed to adults with intellectual disabilities. Archival cognitive assessment data were collected from 40 subjects with intellectual disabilities. The assessment data were subjected to pairwise comparison analysis. The most promising results were then subjected to stepwise multiple regression analysis. The BNT-II was found to be highly correlated with all WAIS-III, WMS-III, PPVT-III, and WRAT-III scores (with the sole exception of the WRAT-III Spelling). This is seen to be a first step in indicating that the BNT-II might be a useful tool in detecting cognitive decline in individuals with intellectual disabilities. Ideas for further research are discussed.neurological deficits common in this population are insurmountable obstacles to therapy. ID Diagnostic Criteria.
