The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Fifth Ed Aus (WISC-V)
Cognitive functioning can sometimes explain disruptive behaviour, learning and/or social difficulties in children. An intellectual assessment is often used to determine whether cognitive difficulties are a factor, and what help is required in and out of the classroom.
The WISC-V is used to assess general intelligence for children aged between
6 and 16 years and 11 months. It has Australian norms and language adaption.
