Overview

The Weschler Adult Intelligence Scale-III (WAIS-III) is the most widely used and well known adult intelligence test. A new version of the WAIS-III was published late in 1997, creating a need for a quick and easy guide on administering, and interpreting and reporting on the updated test. The Essentials of WAIS-III Assessment is the first and only book to provide mental health professionals and students with interpretive and administrative guides to the WAIS-III.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"meets the intended goals of providing scoring, administration, and interpretation guidelines for the WISC-III and WPPSI-R." (Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, January 2003)
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ty A. Ridenour, PhD (Washington University School of Medicine)
Description: This book provides balanced and complete instruction for use of the pediatric Wechsler intelligence tests, emphasizing techniques to identify individuals' strengths and weaknesses.
Purpose: Historical context, empirical evidence, alternative theoretical orientations, and clinical insight are used to enhance a comprehensive and succinct "how to" book for use of the Wechsler intelligence tests. The authors also review the rich research literature addressing the interpretation of Wechsler scores.
Audience: The topic and presentation style are aimed primarily at clinicians in training. However, the author's experience with and authority on the Wechsler intelligence tests, breadth of the material presented, convenient aids for interpretation of individuals' performances, and unique coverage of the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence-Revised provide a valuable reference tool for experienced clinicians.
Features: Guidance regarding the administration of the Wechsler scales is multifaceted and meticulous. The authors enhance their instruction with a wide range of pertinent topics such as giving parents tips on how to best prepare their child for taking intelligence tests and the sources of the items of the Wechsler subscales. Subscales of the WISC-III and WPPSI-R are described thoroughly in a balanced manner and are supplemented with "Rapid Reference" keys that present clinical hints for gleaning rich and valid information from each assessment (e.g., what behaviors to be cognizant of while a child takes each subscale). Warnings of certain shortcomings of Wechsler scales alert clinicians to the aspects of the WISC-III and WPPSI-R that have failed to live up to expectations under empirical scrutiny. Tables and summative figures streamline the process of "profile analysis" of a child's performance. Brief presentations of the theories behind alternative interpretations of children's performances are provided and important studies pertaining to each topic are discussed,
Assessment: This is a valuable expansion of Kaufman's Intelligent Testing with the WISC-III (1994). Although there is much overlap in the two texts, this book more succinctly presents information regarding clinical use of the WISC-III and provides an excellent resource for use of the WPPSI-R.
