Abstract

This paper will review and critically evaluate the diversity of methods currently available to clinicians when employing the third editions of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale and Wechsler Memory Scale as well as the Wechsler Test of Adult Reading. Emphasis will be placed on recent developments such as methods for estimating premorbid levels of functioning, reducing the number of tests administered, the importance of discrepancy analysis, detecting meaningful change, assessment of cognitive effort, estimation of reading levels, and the utility of the general ability index. Each method will be demonstrated with illustrative case examples.
