Description:

WISC IV refers to the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, one of the most popular measures used wordwide for measuring children's intelligence. The second edition of the WISC-IV Clinical Interpretation and Intervention will include new information obtained from the clinical use of the WISC-IV in practice. Information on the basic use of the assessment tool is condensed from three chapters into one, with four new chapters discussing how to use and interpret WISC-IV with additional clinical populations. These new populations include pervasive Developmental Disorders including autism, Social and emotional disorders, psychiatric disorders, and medical disorders that may affect intelligence. An additional new chapter discusses intervention planning across patient populations. Each of the chapters (revised original chapters and new chapters) will additionally include case studies including diagnosis and intervention. Overall, the material in the book is 65% changed, new, and updated. These changes make the second edition better able to meet clinician's needs in using and interpreting this test. As the WISC-V is not due out until 2013, this book will be timely for many years. Changes to the 2nd edition: * Inclusion of case studies in all chapters * Intervention specifics, e.g "pin homework assignments to student's backpack" * New chapter on intervention planning * New coverage of test interpretation across new patient populations * All chapters revised to reflect data obtained from the test in clinical use Changes to the 2nd edition: * Inclusion of case studies in all chapters * Intervention specifics, e.g "pin homework assignments to student's backpack" * New chapter on intervention planning * New coverage of test interpretation across new patient populations * All chapters revised to reflect data obtained from the test in clinical use
