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.
