Linking Assessment to Practice: Developing Cognitive Functions
Thinking abilities as measured by the WISC can also be viewed through the lens of cognitive functions.
In this webinar you will:
- Gain additional perspective on how WISC scores can not only inform school performance but also identify cognitive functions involved in application of abilities in classroom expectations
- Learn guidelines for rating and selecting cognitive functions that can be addressed through the NILD educational therapy techniques
- Strengthen the focus of thinking development in your NILD educational therapy sessions by understanding and applying knowledge of cognitive functions
