Weschler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC V): getting started

May 16 / 9:00 am - May 17 / 5:00 pm


This 2 day intensive workshop will introduce participants to the administration, scoring & interpretation of the most commonly used intelligence test in the world, the Weschler Intelligence Scale for Children, 5th Edition (WISC V). The course will walk through concepts such as intelligence and how theory has shaped the development of the WISC V. Participants will have an opportunity to observe WISC V administrations and have time to practice their own skills with colleagues. Attention to scoring, common mistakes and problems will be addressed as well as using the WISC V with diverse populations (e.g. disabilities, bilingual, brain trauma etc.). Basic interpretation of the WISC V will be covered on the second day through the examination of case studies.
