Cognitive Functioning

In your specialty area, imagine that you received a referral from a colleague for a psychological assessment concentrating on cognitive functioning.

Create a referral question, for example, “Please assess this individual in terms of his/her ability to participate in and benefit from an inpatient substance abuse rehabilitation program.”

Pick the appropriate instrument for a specific client among the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale IV (WAIS-IV), the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children IV (WISC-IV), or the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence-III (WPPSI-III).

Describe the client’s demographics, for example, “38-year-old divorced female…”

Employing the correct instrument for the client and the referral question, briefly review each of the subscales in terms of:

  1. What are they believed to measure?
  2. How, specifically, would each score contribute information that would answer the referral question?
