The recent release of the fifth edition of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children includes some substantial changes to our field's clinical assessment of broad cognitive functioning.  Drs. Kleiner and Edidin will discuss these changes with a focus on how to understand and interpret the results section of neuropsychological and psychoeducational evaluation reports.  This PLD/SE presentation will include applications of the WISC-5 for special educators and detail the type of collaborations between diagnosticians and educators that best support our students.
