Administering and Interpreting the WISC
For many of us, testing can be a daunting subject to learn and master. It reminds me of the year my husband and I lived in France to learn how to speak a foreign language. It was a lot of work and hours of study but the mastery of the task seemed much slower. But without learning French, we would not have functioned very well in west Africa.
As educational therapists, understanding the testing data of our students is vital for us as professionals. Testing helps us understand what's going on with our students which then equips us to design and implement affective educational therapy. If understanding that data has been a challenge for you, this webinar is for you. My goal is to provide some good review but then practice analyzing a student's initial report. Let's keep working on honing this skill. And as a good friend of mine recently told me, practice makes permanent!
