WIAT-III and WISC-V Integration
November 11 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
Expand your psychological assessment expertise and enhance your intervention planning, with our comprehensive WIAT-III and WISC-V Integration workshop. Focussed on diagnostic and clinical decision-making, uncover invaluable insights and make a lasting impact on your practice.
Individually administered, norm-referenced intelligence and academic achievement tests are important components of comprehensive psychoeducational evaluations. The Wechsler Individual Achievement Test-3rd Edition (WIAT-III) and the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-5th Edition (WISC-V) are the most widely used tests of their kind in Australia and the WISC-V is one of the six selected tests on the National Psychology Exam. This workshop will give an overview of the tests and examine how they are used together to assist in diagnostic and clinical decision-making.
At the end of this workshop participants will be able to:
- Describe the structure of the WISC-V and WIAT-III.
- Understand the relationship between the WISC-V and the WIAT-III.
- Interpret WISC-V and WIAT-III profiles, particularly in relation to learning disorders.
Provisional or registered psychologists, including board approved supervisors who wish to expand their understanding of the applications of the WIAT-III and WISC-V.
