The QNST—3 documents the presence of neurological soft signs (NSS), which can indicate neural trauma and are often harbingers of learning difficulties (without history of trauma). The QNST—3 tasks are commonly used in traditional neurologic exams and require no special equipment, just a pencil. The presence of NSS indicates impaired motor coordination and sensory integration, both of which relate to learning as well as to general daily functioning. The QNST—3 provides an easy and reliable way to quantify, over time, the presence and extent of behaviors that may be of clinical importance.
