  • Introducing the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children Fifth Edition Integrated (WISC-V Integrated)

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD

    Topic(s):

    The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children–Fifth Edition Integrated (WISC–V Integrated) is an individually administered clinical instrument designed to assess the cognitive ability and problem-solving processes of children aged 6 years 0 months through 16 years 11 months. The WISC-V Integrated will be published in 2015. The instrument was designed to merge the clinical utility and features of the WISC-V with standardized measures, included on the WISC-V Integrated, to capture an examinee’s problem-solving approach and cognitive processes. The WISC-V Integrated reflects the importance of a process-oriented approach to assessment which requires quantitatively derived scores and emphasizes qualitative interpretation of test performance.

    This one-hour webinar will describe the components and clinical utility of the WISC-V Integrated. As a result of the session, participants will be able to (1) describe the subtests from the WISC-V Integrated; and (2) describe how performance on the WISC-V Integrated subtests can be used to understand an examinee’s cognitive processes, problem-solving strategies, and other test behaviors.

  • Developmental Assessment: Gateway to Early Intervention

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD

    Topic(s):

    Typical preschool-age children dress themselves, brush their teeth, use the toilet, and wash their hands. They run, climb, hop, kick, bounce a ball, and ride a tricycle. They manipulate blocks and books and they use crayons and pencils to write and draw. They interact appropriately with adults and peers, and they understand and use language. Many of these behaviors require gross and/or fine motor skills. So, how does a delay in motor development impact performance of these everyday behaviors? And what can we do to facilitate the child’s development? This one-hour webinar will describe the assessment of young children across domains to determine if their development is consistent with age expectations. The presenter will use assessment data (1) to show how impairment in one domain impacts functioning in other developmental areas, and (2) to identify objectives for early intervention.

  • Cognitive Development and Learning in Young Children

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD

    Topic(s):

    In early childhood programs, some children learn the pre-academic skills we teach; some children do not. Some children are able to wait their turn; others respond impulsively. What child factors account for such differences in performance? To acquire the skills and concepts presented in the classroom, children must pay attention, register and assign meaning to information they see and hear, and store information in memory. These are some of the cognitive processes that are involved in learning. Early childhood is characterized by growth in and stabilization of cognitive functioning in the areas of language development, fluid reasoning, memory and executive functioning. The transition from infancy to early childhood is associated with increased proficiency in tasks requiring attention, working memory, and cognitive flexibility. Developmental language milestones in early childhood include continued expansion of vocabulary and refinement of the rules for applying grammar and syntax. This one-hour webinar will describe cognitive development in young children. The presenter will use sample data to demonstrate the relationship between cognitive abilities and learning.

  • Are you Ready? Using the new WISC-V

    Presenter: Adam Scheller, PhD

    Topic(s):

    This session is designed will provide essential information to practitioners as they familiarize themselves with the Wechsler intelligence Scale for Children – Fifth Edition (WISC-V). The focus of the session will be to take a deeper dive into how the revisions to the Scale better inform clinicians, parents, and educators about how a student’s cognitive needs and strengths impact learning and other daily activities. Content is intended for those practitioners who routinely assess students between the ages of 6 and 16 for the provision of special services, and have attended one of the live or recorded introductory sessions. During the presentation, participants will gain practical information to help them in using the WISC-V as part of a comprehensive evaluation. Particular emphasis will be placed on the new components of the WISC-V, such as new subtests, index, and ancillary scores.

    Digital or Paper- You Now Have a Choice!

    This session is applicable whether you choose to use WISC-V in traditional paper and pencil format or on Q-interactive. If you are looking for a more detailed description of Q-interactive and WISC-V, we encourage you to attend a recorded session regarding the WISC-V on Q-interactive, or a Q-interactive Overview webinar.
