Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC®-IV)

The WISC-IV is an individually administered test for ages 6-16 that can be completed without reading or writing. It provides measurement of intellectual ability and insight into a child's cognitive functioning as well as aiding in the understanding of learning disabilities and attentional disorders.
The WISC-IV provides information for educational intervention purposes, such as those that address learning difficulties and cognitive deficits. It can also be used to assess a child's cognitive development. It is further useful in showing discrepancies between a child's intelligence and school performance. It can subsequently be used as part of an assessment battery to identify intellectual giftedness, learning difficulties, and cognitive strengths and weaknesses.

Raven's Coloured Progressive Matrices

Raven’s CPM measures clear-thinking ability for ages 5-11 years and older adults. Before the ability to reason by analogy has developed, or in cases where intellectual ability has become impaired, the CPM can be used to assess the degree to which individuals can think clearly, or the level to which their intellectual abilities have deteriorated.
The CPM items are arranged to assess cognitive development up to the stage when a person is sufficiently able to reason by analogy and adopt this way of thinking as a consistent method of inference. This stage in intellectual maturation appears to be one of the earliest to decline as the result of organic dysfunction.

Beery-Buktenica Developmental Test of Visual-Motor Integration (BEERY  VMI)

The Beery VMI offers a convenient way to screen for visual-motor deficits that can lead to learning, neuropsychological, and behavior problems. It can be used to help identify individuals who may be encountering difficulties in visual-motor integration, make appropriate referrals for needed services and test the effectiveness of educational and other interventions.
The Beery VMI and includes norms for ages 2 -18, as well as adult norms for age 19+. It provides supplemental Visual Perception and Motor Coordination tests as optional assessments designed to be administered after results from the Short or Full Format tests show the need for further testing. This is to enable comparison of an individual's test results with relatively pure visual and motor performances.


 



Sensory Profile

Assessment of children’s sensory processing patterns in the context of home, school, and community-based activities. An evaluation of a child's unique sensory processing patterns from a position of strengths. Helpful in identification and documention of how sensory processing may be contributing to or interfering with a child's participation and in the development of effective treatment plans, interventions, and everyday remediation strategies.


The NEPSY–II is the only single measure that allows the clinician to create a tailored assessment across six domains, specific to a child's (ages 3:0-16:11 years) situation in order to answer referral questions or diagnostic concerns. The results provide information relating to typical childhood disorders, which can lead to accurate diagnosis and intervention planning for success in school and at home.
The results, when combined with quantifiable behavioral observations analysis and observations analysis during the assessment and from home/school observations, can help clarify the nature of a child's problems and provide a basis for developing appropriate intervention recommendations.
The NEPSY–II provides an assessment of executive functioning and a comprehensive view of quantitative and qualitative patterns of neuropsychological performance, links results to educational difficulties, and facilitates recommen-dations for interventions.
