Unleash the Diagnostic Power of WISC-IV and Unlock the Potential of the Child

For the best possible assessment of a child’s capabilities plus the information necessary for successful intervention planning, you need to go beyond the intellectual score.

With the WISC-IV Integrated, you can go beyond the process scores and determine if underlying processing problems are affecting the WISC-IV core test results by administering any of the 16-optional subtests.

The WISC®-IV Integrated includes an extended array of 16 subtests to complement the core test components of WISC-IV, the most widely used clinical instrument for measuring cognitive ability in children.

Features & Benefits

  • Provides a flexible process oriented approach to assessment and interpretation
  • Offers streamlined, user-friendly administration procedures
  • Gives a complete picture of a child’s testing behavior, strategies, and cognitive processing
  • Allows translation of ability scores to classroom intervention and remediation
  • Subtests can be administered independently or as a full battery
  • Offers enhanced interpretive information—more of a diagnostic tool

WISC-IV Integrated Validity Studies

Extensive validity data are available for ADHD, learning disabilities (reading, writing, math), traumatic brain injury, autism/Aspergers syndrome, mental retardation, and receptive and expressive language disorders.

Areas of Assessment

Why use WISC®-IV Integrated?

As a resource that models clinical best practices, any number of the 16 process subtests can be given when you suspect a processing problem or want a closer examination of the domain involved in the child’s performance.

Based on the WISC-IV core profile, a child may be having a problem in one or more of the four domains of cognitive functioning—

 Verbal – Case Study (PDF – 388 KB)

Perceptual – Case Study (PDF – 162 KB)

Working Memory – Case Study (PDF – 164 KB)

Processing Speed – Case Study (PDF – 119 KB)

You may administer any of the optional subtests, but they can only supplement—and do not replace— the WISC-IV subtests in calculation of IQ and index scores. The enhanced information you obtain can be invaluable in intervention planning and progress monitoring.
