The most recent editions of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale and the Wechsler Memory Scale published in 2008 and 2009, respectively. Near the end of 2009, a new product called The Advanced Clinical Solutions for Use with the WAIS-IV/WMS-IV (ACS) published. The new product expands the construct coverage of the WAIS-IV/WMS-IV and provides additional procedures that improve the clinical utility of those instruments. This book provides WAIS-IV users with information on applying the WAIS-IV including additional indexes and information regarding the use in special populations for advanced clinical use and interpretation. The book offers sophisticated users of the WAIS-IV and WMS-IV guidelines on how to enhance the clinical applicability of these tests. The first section of the book provides an overview of the WAIS-IV, WMS-IV, and new Advanced Clinical Solutions for the WAIS-IV/WMS-IV. In this section, the examiner will understand:when variability in WAIS-IV and WMS-IV scores is considered normal versus atypicalhow many low scores are typical for healthy adults versus clinical populationshow to determine if an examinee performance represents a decline in functioning from a previous levelhow to assess if results are due to suboptimal effortThis topic is discussed in the context of using Demographically Adjusted Normative data, estimating Pre-morbid Intelligence and using Reliable Change Scores and contrast scores. Finally, the new social cognition measures found in the ACS are presented. The second part of the book focuses on applying the topics in the first section to specific clinical conditions. This will include recommended protocols for specific clientele (e.g. using demographically adjusted norms when evaluated individuals with brain injury). Common clinical conditions will be discussed including Alzheimer's disease, mild cognitive impairment, traumatic brain injury, temporal lobe epilepsy, attention deficit disorder, autism, Asperger's syndrome, reading and math disorder, schizophrenia and other psychiatric conditions. Each chapter will provide case examples applying all three test batteries and using report examples as they are obtained from the scoring assistant. Finally, the use of the WAIS-IV/WMS-IV and the ACS in forensic settings is presented. The editors and chapter authors will have exclusive access to proprietary WAIS-IV/WMS-IV/ACS data (n 3,000) to run advanced analyses and provide additional information beyond what is offered in the manualCoverage of administration and scoring of WAIS-IV, WMS-IV and ACSInformation contained on use of WAIS-IV with special populationsCase studies in each chapterWritten by the creators of WAIS-IV, WMS-IV and ACS
