The fifth version of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children is the most commonly used valid and reliable scale of intelligence assessment for children and teenagers, aged 6 years and 0 months to 16 years and 11 months. The administration of the intelligence scale is done individually with the child by a psychologist licensed to practice and suitably trained in the administration of WISC-V.
The intelligence scale for children and adolescents consists of five different intelligence indices (Verbal Comprehension Index, Visual Spatial Index, Fluid Reasoning Index, Working Memory Index and Processing Speed Index) and the General Intelligence Index.
The results of the WISC-V scale can highlight the potential and difficulties of the child, exclude issues of differential diagnosis and lead to appropriate intervention and training. For a complete diagnosis and evaluation of children and adolescents both clinical interviews with parents and children and other psychometric tools are used as a precaution.
