INTRODUCTION: In our country there is a lack of neuropsychological instruments to assess of learning disabilities. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this work was to adapt some scales of the Luria-Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery (LNNB-C) with children without learning difficulties. METHODS: One hundred children with 8-8 years and 11 months were participated. The procedures include the construction of a preliminary version of the instrument, initial evaluation, reformulation and pilot study. Were adapted scales: visual functions, receptive language, expressive language, reading, writing, arithmetic and memory. RESULTS: The results show the performance of the sample in terms of average T-scores and percentiles (90% and 95%) and minimum-maximum scores obtained. CONCLUSION: Further studies are suggested to adapt other scales and the search evidence of validity.
