Using the WISC-V to Inform Intervention
This talk will provide an overview of Wechsler’s Intelligence Scale for Children. We will briefly consider why we use standardised intelligence tests such as the WISC-V and how it can be one useful tool we use to better understand a child. We will then discuss the structure of the test and the individual indices and subtests.
