 Program Description

This workshop is intended to introduce psychologists to the recently published WISC-V.   The focus of the workshop will be on the practical considerations necessary to be mastered to become proficient with the latest revision of the Wechsler scales.  While some historical perspective will be provided on the development of intellectual assessment, the emphasis will be primarily upon the administration, scoring and interpretation of the WISC-V.  New subtests and composite scores will be introduced.  Guidance will be provided on navigating the many statistical comparisons offered in the expanded manual.  Some interpretive guidelines will also be offered in applying the test data to diverse clinical presentations.  This workshop is intended for psychologists and graduate students who are engaged in psychological testing or who have an interest in understanding this area

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the major differences between WISC-V and its predecessor intellectual assessments.
  • Explain the administration, scoring, and interpretation of new subtests.
  • Identify new domains of measured intellectual functioning.
  • Apply the WISC-V to the identification of common learning issues.
