The aim of the present paper is to propose a common neuropsychological battery for the assessment of children with epilepsy (E) to be adopted in different Italian centers. This battery represents the result of several meetings of the LICE Neuropsychology study group among specialists in the fields of child neuropsychology, neurology and psychiatry. The main goal of the study was to prepare a first-level neuropsychological battery for the assessment of the principal cognitive functions that could be administered in a relatively short time. The study group analysed the existing tests, evaluated their pros and cons in order to select those that could be used with a wide enough range of age groups and could offer a valid index of the cognitive functions most frequently impaired in children with E.
