Quick Neurological Screening Test, 3ed Revised (QNST-3R)

Age Range: 5 to 80
2017

The QNST-3R (Updated Revised Edition) is an individually administered, empirically based assessment of the development of motor coordination and sensory integration (both of which have been shown to relate to learning as well as to general daily functioning), seen as neurological soft signs (NSS). NSS are minor irregularities that include poor motor coordination, sensory perceptual changes, and difficulty sequencing complex motor tasks. The presence of NSS can indicate neural trauma and are often harbingers of learning difficulties (without history of trauma).

The QNST-3R provides an easy and reliable way to quantify, over time, the presence and extent of behaviours that may be of clinical importance:

  • motor maturity and development
  • sensory processing
  • gross and fine muscle control
  • motor planning and sequencing
  • sense of rate and rhythm
  • spatial organisation
  • visual and auditory perception
  • balance and vestibular function
  • disorders of attention

The Manual's updated literature review includes information about NSS seen in sports-related concussion (child and adult), blast injuries (returning war veterans), learning disabilities, and neurodegenerative diseases (such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson’s diseases). The expanded norms now cover ages 5 years through geriatrics (80+).

Administration and Scoring

The QNST-3R is an individually administered, empirically based assessment that can be completed and scored in 20-30 minutes. Hand scoring is quick and easy; raw scores (from each task and an overall total) are interpreted in terms of functional categories (based on the frequencies of NSS seen in the normative sample).

The QNST-3R tasks are commonly used in traditional neurologic exams and require no special equipment, just a pencil.
