Supported by the direct observation of the child’s behavior and the administration of parents’ questionnaires, the WISC-IV, can be used as a part of a more comprehensive psycho-educational assessment in order to identify learning difficulties, strengths and weaknesses in the cognitive functioning.
The WISC-IV scale is, for this reason, widely used in school settings.
In fact, the Scale identifies cognitive deficits that could be the explanation of a poor academic performance.
In this case the final aim of the evaluation is to provide a detailed profile of the learning skills in order to design an individual learning plan that could facilitate the academic work.
In our center the WISC-IV Intelligence Scale for Children is available in English and Italian.
The Scale assesses the cognitive abilities of children aged between 6 years and 0 months and 16 years and 11 months.
