Overview

For both experienced psychologists and graduate students, the book begins with the essentials of WISC-IV interpretation, and quickly moves on to a deeper analysis of the major cognitive domains assessed by WISC-IV. Societal and home environment factors are explored that affect development of children’s cognitive abilities and their scores on intelligence tests. Subsequent chapters address the assessment of cognitive abilities that compose ‘g’, with special emphasis on the clinical correlates of working memory and processing speed. Later chapters explain the processing approach to interpretation that is the cornerstone of the WISC-IV Integrated. Subsequent chapters address the interpretation of WISC-IV findings within the context of other instruments as part of a full psychological evaluation. The final chapter exemplifies how to write psychological evaluation reports from a child-centered, rather than a score-centered, perspective that can transform how parents and teachers respond to a child.
