WJ Cognitive: Interpreting Data in Alignment with the Building Blocks for Learning
Understanding our students is key to providing effective educational therapy. Testing data is foundational in reaching that goal. But it can often be confusing to know how to use, let alone understand that information. While the NILD courses focus on understanding the Weschler Intelligence Scales for Children (WISC), the Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Cognitive Ability are another way to measure cognitive ability. This webinar is designed to give you an overview of the WJ Cognitive tests and how it can be aligned to the Building Blocks of Learning. If your student has been tested using the WJ Cognitive test, this information will help guide you to a deeper understanding of your students and their learning needs.
