Overview

The WISC is the most widely used children's IQ test in the world. This superlative text—replacing the author's earlier volume dealing with the WISC-R— provides examiners with a sensible, systematic method of interpreting WISC-III test profiles. Outlines seven steps which allow examiners to organize these scores in meaningful ways. Enables them to understand a child's specific areas of strength and weakness and to translate these cognitive assets and deficits into appropriate suggestions for intervention. Includes 10 comprehensive case reports to effectively illustrate the procedure, plus numerous valuable tables not found in other publications.

Incl. intelligent testing/abilities measured by the WISC-III subtests/interpreting subtest profiles/"validity" factors.
