Test items in WAIS-IVINDIA have been adapted to India for cultural appropriateness. India norms for WAIS-IVINDIA are the most recent set of norms and representative of the Indian population across the country. These latest norms will enable mental health professional obtain valid results on which to base their clinical judgment, and plan interventions for clients.
