OAK HILL: THE WHAT, WHY AND WHEN OF WISC AND WIAT ASSESSMENT
Thursday 21 November 2019

OAK HILL are delighted to announce their upcoming seminar:
The What, Why and When of WISC and WIAT assessment (Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children and the Wechsler Individual Achievement Test), and how the results can help us plan meaningful programmes to assist learning

Thursday, 21st November 2019
18h-19h15

Summary
WISC and WIAT assessment results present parents and educators with useful information about a child's cognitive strengths and performance challenges, whilst also providing recommendations about how to help them better access the learning environment.


Key points that will be discussed

* WISC and WIAT assessments, why and when are they used, and what they measure.
* Subtests and the 'spiky' profile
* Working Memory and Processing Speed - are these results significant?
* Putting it all together - what can help in the classroom.
