9780127035703: Clinical Interpretation of the WAIS-III and WMS-III (Practical Resources for the Mental Health Professional)

This guide to the WAIS-III and WMS-III tests is written to help clinical practitioners achieve efficient and accurate interpretations of test results. The only interpretive guide to be based on data obtained while standardizing the tests, this reference source provides new models for interpreting results, as well as practical information on the diagnostic validity, demographically corrected norms, and accuracy of the tests in measuring intelligence and memory.

The focus of information is to allow clinicians to reduce variance in the interpretations of scores, indicating how best to factor in socio-economic status of respondents, interpreting meaningful change in serial assessments, and scoring with alternate or omitted sub-tests. Also included in the book are chapters on accommodating clients with disabilities. The final chapter discusses frequently asked questions (with answers) on the use and interpretation of the tests, as well as practical issues to help make scoring time-efficient and accurate.



  • Only guide to be based on data obtained in the standardization of the tests
  • Practical examples given to help guide interpretation of scores
  • Focuses on information to make faster, more accurate scoring interpretations

Review:

"Tulsky and colleagues have prepared a most interesting and informative volume on the development and clinical interpretation of the WAIS-III and WMS-III... In summary, I found this to be a most informative and enjoyable book."
-JOURNAL OF CLINICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL NEUROPSYCHOLOGY

"Overall, this is a well-edited book that presents in a coherent and consistent manner a new framework for interpretation of the WAIS-III and WMS-III, along with valuable applied normative, base rate, and related psychometric information, that will be of considerable value to a wide range of neuropsychologists... this book fills an important void in the assessment area, especially with regard to the WMS-III. Anyone who uses the WAIS-III and WMS-III on a regular basis should have this text on his or her bookshelf."
-APPLIED NEUROPSYCHOLOGY

"This is an edited collection of papers that focuses on various aspects of the most recent revision of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS-III) and Wechsler Memory Scale (WMS-III). The papers in this volume fall into three broad areas. The first section of the book (and part of one of the subsequent chapters) provides an overview of the history of the development of measures of memory and intelligence, with particular emphasis on the Wechsler scales. These chapters are thoroughly delightful, and the only shortcoming is that they are too brief."
-JOURNAL OF THE INTERNATIONAL NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL SOCIETY
